As it turns out, the MIUI 11 train has stopped at the Redmi Y3/Redmi 7 station as the devices have finally started receiving the latest iteration of the company’s custom skin in India.

As seen in the image, the update weighs in at 648MB. Unlike the other smartphones by the company that have already got the October security patch with the new update, the one for the Redmi Y3 still comes with the August security patch.
It is worth noting that the new build is still based on Android 9 Pie OS.
Furthermore, the Redmi 7 devices have also started receiving the same update. The update size is 1.7GB and comes with build number MIUI v220.127.116.11PFLINXM.
