Xiaomi regularly distributes Android updates for its smartphones, but the Chinese company is not one of the fastest manufacturers. Xiaomi is now trying to explain the delay, but ultimately only knows what he already knows.
Android 11 is a big challenge for Xiaomi
Xiaomi recently launched a new high-end smartphone with the Mi 11, unlike what was previously expected, it was offered with Android 11, but not with MIUI 12.5. Instead, we had to be content with the older version of the interface, although the MIUI 12.5 has brought many improvements that are eagerly awaited. For example, apps that cannot be destroyed in general can be deleted. But the rollout has been delayed. Even the new Mi 11 Lite and Mi 11 Ultra only run with MIUI 12. Xiaomi’s Android.
According to Xiaomi, optimizing your apps under Android 11 is very difficult. This is the reason why high-end smartphones have not yet received the update on the new surface. Performance and stability are also major problems. Android 11 doesn’t seem to be the problem, the new phones already run with the new operating system from Google, but MIUI 12.5. If you offer such a heavily customized version, then it can be assumed that customization will come in handy.
Does Xiaomi have too many smartphones on offer?
I In the past few weeks, Xiaomi has introduced countless new phones. The Mi 11 now has four versions, but before that, there were many Redmi cell phones as well, all of which are only slightly different. The number can no longer be ignored and the customer does not even know what kind of cell phone these are. With so many devices, we are not surprised that the update has been delayed. The resources have to be increased slightly so that it works with Samsung as well. This will certainly not be any easier for the Chinese manufacturer when more and more cell phones come on the market. In the end, the customer lags.
