What you need to know
- Xiaomi has begun rolling out the stable MIUI 11 update for the Redmi K20 in India.
- The MIUI 11 build is based on Android 9 Pie but brings an all-new UI design, dynamic Always-on display themes, as well as the September Android security patch.
- Redmi K20 Pro is slated to receive the stable MIUI 11 update early next month.
Xiaomi announced during the Redmi Note 8 Pro launch event in India earlier this month that the MIUI 11 update would begin rolling out to compatible phones from October 22. The company has now started pushing the stable MIUI 11 update for the mid-range Redmi K20 in India. Xiaomi is rolling out the update in batches, which means it will take a few days before the update starts showing up for all Redmi K20 users in India.
Unfortunately, the MIUI 11 build for the Redmi K20 is based on Android 9 Pie. However, it is still a major update and introduces a slew of new features, including a redesigned user-interface. The MIUI v184.108.40.206.PFJINXM update weighs in at 766MB in terms of size, so it is recommended that you download it over Wi-Fi instead of using mobile data. To check for the update on your Redmi K20, you will need to navigate to Settings > About phone > System update.

As promised by Xiaomi, the stable MIUI 11 update will be rolled out to the POCO F1, Redmi Y3, Redmi 7, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7s, and Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphones as well before the end of the month. Redmi K20 Pro, on the other hand, is slated to receive the MIUI 11 update early next month. Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro owners, however, will have to wait even longer to receive the MIUI 11 update.
Redmi K20 may not be nearly as impressive as the more expensive Redmi K20 Pro but it still is one of the most impressive mid-range phones on the market currently. You get a similar Aura Prime design as the Redmi Note 8 Pro and an impressive 6.39-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. It also has a large 4,000mAh battery, dual-band GPS, triple rear cameras with a 48MP primary sensor, 20MP pop-up selfie camera, and a seventh-generation in-display fingerprint sensor.
