Weirdly, the Mi A2, which was launched in July 2018, was updated to Android 10 earlier this week. The phone was launched with Android Oreo out of the box and received the Android Pie update in November 2018. Xiaomi Mi A3, on the other hand, is yet to receive a single major OS update.
Xiaomi's Mi 8, Mi 9, as well as the Redmi K20 duo have also received the stable Android 10 update already. However, the company hasn't started rolling out Android 10 to its budget phones yet. And unlike most budget phones from Xiaomi, the Mi A3 will receive not one but two major OS updates. In addition to the upcoming Android 10 update, the phone is guaranteed to receive Android 11 as well.
