Android 11 update status for Redmi Note 8 Pro-
Out of all the fantastic features from the Redmi Note 8 Pro, the Redmi smartphones in general come with a terrible policy. For all those who didn’t know, the Redmi device especially of the Note series only promises one major OS update. Though Redmi from Xiaomi is widely reputed due to the device specs, this is a very big flaw that is criticized all across. Seems like Redmi Note 8 Pro is no special as the device looks to be ruled out from receiving the Android 11 update.
As mentioned, Redmi Note 8 Pro released with Android 9 (Pie). The Android 10 update was pushed out successfully without delay and that seems to be the last one as one of the moderators suggests not to expect Android 11 update.
However, the policy might change because of Redmi K20 and K30 series. These two devices from Redmi are very popular flagship devices and therefore, it is only fair for the brand to push out Android 11 update the devices. And that might lead to the change in what Redmi usually follows for considering other devices too, that are still eligible to boot on the upcoming Android OS.
Rest assured, we will update this article when we receive further information about the Android 11 update for Redmi Note 8 Pro, so stay tuned! Also, share this article with all those who are waiting for the update!
