MIUI 10 v9.3.11 Global Beta Update For Redmi Note 6 Pro

The MIUI 10 Global Beta 9.3.11 OTA update rollout is currently limited to beta testers only although Note 6 Pro users can also download the closed beta update from here and flash it on their unit. It should soon be rolled out to a broader audience in a stable form. As for the other Xiaomi devices, some select phones are eligible for downloading the Android 9 Pie-based MIUI Global Beta ROM in a zip file followed by a manual flash. These other phones include the Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Y2, and the Redmi 6 Pro too.
