Google took the wraps off Android 11 last month and rolled out the update for Pixel devices. Other OEMs also followed the suit soon and began rolling-out Android 11 update for their flagship devices. Xiaomi is no exception here, as the company has already rolled out Android 11 update for Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro globally. A few other Xiaomi devices such as Redmi K30 5G, Redmi K30i, and Mi 10 Youth have already received Android 11 based MIUI update in China. Now, the Chinese smartphone giant has started rolling out Android 11 update for Redmi K20 and Redmi K30 4G users in China.

Redmi K30 4G and Redmi K20 Receive Android 11 based MIUI China Beta ROM Update!

Xiaomi, with this week’s Beta update, has updated Redmi K30 4G and Redmi K20 to Android 11. What comes as a surprise is the fact that the Redmi K20 Pro has not yet received Android 11 update.

With Redmi K30 4G receiving Android 11 update in China, the platform version update for POCO X2 doesn’t look too far now.
