Xiaomi has added a whole bunch of new devices to its EOS product list. For those who are unaware, EOS stands for End of Support. This means the products mentioned in this list will no longer receive any software updates or security patch updates. Xiaomi has added new devices to the list including Redmi K20, Redmi Note 7 series devices, Redmi devices and even Mi Pad Android tablets.
Typically, Xiaomi provides 2 years of software updates and up to 3 years of the security update for its devices both in China and globally. While this might not be the best in the industry, this number is fairly good considering the number of devices Xiaomi launches each year. Over the past few months, Xiaomi has promised to offer longer support for some of its premium devices. Now, let’s take a look at the list of devices Xiaomi is ending support for.

Among these devices, Redmi Note 7 series and the Redmi K20 devices are the only ones available in India.

These devices will no longer receive any further MIUI updates and the company will stop the beta development around these phones as well.
While Xiaomi has confirmed that these devices will not receive any updates in the future, it is worth mentioning that in case of a serious security vulnerability is discovered, the company will push any update to the device to fix the issue, even if the device is no longer supported and has reached EOS.
