Poco X3 Android 11 Update Starts Rolling Out For Indian Users: All You Need to Know

POCO X3 Android 11 update also brings updated May Android security patch.


POCO India launched the POCO X3 smartphone back in September 2020. The handset came pre-loaded with Android 10 based MIUI 12. Now, POCO has started rolling out Android 11 update for the POCO X3 users in the country. The company had rolled out Android 11 update for POCO X3 NFC users in Europe back in March, but the POCO X3 users in India will have to wait for a little more to use Android 11 on their devices, as the update is available only for the pilot testers. POCO X3 users took it to POCO Community to share the news.

POCO X3 Android 11 Update brings May Android Security Patch!

GPS toggle renames as "Location"

Readers must note that the update is available only for Pilot testers as of now, and it might take a few weeks before MIUI 12 stable ROM users start receiving the update on their units. A few months ago, POCO India Director Mr. Anuj Sharma had said that all the POCO device (except POCO F1) will receive Android 11 update, so we can expect POCO M2 Pro, POCO M2, and POCO C3 to receive the update in coming months. However, the company has been quite slow in updating the devices considering Android 12 stable release is less than 3 months away now.

In other POCO related news, the company might introduce a new smartphone under the POCO X3 series in coming months. The upcoming POCO X3 series handset might be called POCO X3 GT, and it will likely be a rebranded Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G (Chinese variant).
