Earlier this month, the head of MIUI confirmed that MIUI 14 will be released for the Mi 10 series. Now, a little over a week after the announcement of the latest software, the executive reveals more details.
He not only hints at the devices that will be receiving the update but also shares a rough timeline for the rollout. Most importantly, he confirms the Android upgrade. Let’s go through his statement.
Earlier today, Zhang Guoquan, director of Xiaomi‘s System Software Department, answered multiple frequently asked questions on MIUI 14. One of these answers provides more details on the availability of the newest MIUI for the Mi 10 series.
But unfortunately, this update will be only available for devices powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform. This means only Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Mi 10 Ultra will get access to MIUI 13 based on Android 13.
As far as the rollout is concerned, the executive suggests that there could be some delay due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in China. However, he believes that the update should arrive by March 2023.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t talk about the availability of the MIUI 14 update for the remaining two Mi 10 series devices, namely Mi 10 Lite and Mi 10 Lite Zoom. Hence, these phones may not get the update. Even if they receive it, the software will be likely based on Android 12.
