The Mi A3 is the most recent launch in Xiaomi’s A-series lineup of smartphones. The device made its debut back in July. And at the time of its launch, the device came with the Android 9 Pie operating system. Come February, Xiaomi started rolling out the Android 10 OS to the Mi A3. The new firmware, however, was flawed with many bugs. Therefore, Xiaomi stopped rolling it out to the users. This issue happened a couple of times; the brand rolled out a revised version of the Android 10-based firmware to the Mi A3 and then canceled it due to software issues.
Looking at the issues with the Android 10 based firmware for the Mi A3, Xiaomi decided to put the Android 10 based firmware on hold and in the meantime roll out an incremental update, to offer March security patch, to the users. While this was a good idea, the incremental update could not be installed on the devices that were running Android 10, as this incremental update was based on Android 9 Pie. With all said and done, Xiaomi started rolling out a new version of Android 10-based firmware to the Mi A3. And guess what, the brand has now stopped rolling out this firmware as well.
According to the report from PiunikaWeb, Xiaomi has pulled back on the rollout of Android 10 based firmware for the Mi A3 this time as the software has various bugs. It is only reasonable for the Mi A3 users to be frustrated as the brand has so far rolled out the Android 10 update to the device three times and pulled them back every single time. Users are now asking Xiaomi to refund the money for their Mi A3 smartphones. Although, we don’t think Xiaomi will agree to any such terms. At the best, the brand could roll out a new, stable, bug-free Android 10 OS to the Mi A3 users.
