Coronavirus is also putting technology companies in difficulty, slowed down, if not even stopped, due to the containment measures imposed by the Chinese government. Even Xiaomi is forced to take some measures due to inability to carry forward the development of MIUI 11, given the situation.
The giant was therefore forced to slow down the development of the beta version, currently reserved only for the Chinese market, of MIUI 11. This does not mean that there will be no more beta versions but only that there will be delays, even considerable in the distribution.
Xiaomi smartphones affected by the delay
At the moment there are a dozen Xiaomi smartphones for which the release of the update has been postponed:
- Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 9
- Xiaomi Mi 8
- Redmi K20 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 6
- Redmi K30
- Redmi K30 5G
- Xiaomi Mi 10
- Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S
Xiaomi thus adds to the long list of Chinese manufacturers who have been forced to postpone the release of the software update. These days also OnePlus, Vivo and Realme are in the same situation and have had to postpone the roll out of several updates.
However, there is no news about the development of the international version of MIUI, released only in a stable version at much longer intervals. It is likely that there will also be repercussions on the Global and European ROM, whose updates could delay a few weeks.
