Xiaomi launched its Redmi Note 9S in the year 2020, which came with MIUI 11 on top of Android 10. The Android 11 Beta 2 is out for the Pixel devices, and Beta 1 for the non-pixel smartphones. The MIUI 12 update for the device will roll out in the second phase. The reports on the web suggest that it will receive the update starting from July end.
We have never expected that the device will get the Android 11 update with the MIUI 12 update. We thought that it will receive MIUI 12 first, and later Android 10. It was confirmed by Xiaomi’s Community moderator. He gave a hint, that the Android 11 update will roll out soon. Currently, inform of the beta update, it is available for the flagship devices from the brand. This was his statement:-
Redmi Note 9S was launched on Android 10 so it may receive Android 11, As of now only flagship devices received Android 11 that too Beta 1(Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, POCO F2 Pro). Talking about MIUI 12, Redmi Note 9S is in round 2 list however no ETA for it. Kindly keep patience and stay tuned on mi global community for further info.
As you can see in the statement, the moderator doesn’t reveal the ETA for the MIUI 12 on top of the Android 11 update of the Redmi Note 9s. Earlier, it was decided that the MIUI 12 for the device will roll out in phase 2. So we can expect the MIUI 12 update first or both after the launch of Android 11.
