Xiaomi Redmi K20 Gets Android 10 Based MIUI 11 Update
Even after six months of launch, the Redmi K20 is still one of the best mid-range devices available in the market today. And it’s good to see the company providing software support on a timely basis. Unlike every year, Xiaomi managed to deliver iterative MIUI upgrade at a faster rate this year, but like every year, it failed to deliver iterative Android upgrade though.
The Redmi K20’s latest MIUI 11 update will be based on Android 10 and you will not notice any new changes except for those added by Google like advanced location and privacy controls, smart reply, focus mode, family link and so on. We are not sure whether Xiaomi is adding Family Link feature to Redmi K20 with this update.
Other features like Dark Theme and gesture navigation were already rolled out to the smartphone via MIUI 11 update. In fact, the Redmi K20 was the first device in India to get the MIUI 11 based on Android 9 Pie in October 2019.
