A proper Android 11 update reaches Xiaomi Mi A3 after some problems. This last available update seems to come with the full circle, Android 11, the January security patch, and the screen recorder.
On the last day of 2020, Xiaomi released what appeared to be the final version of Android 11. The update was resumed a few days later, but it came without the Android 11 screen recorder. With the January security patch, it seems that we can finally turn the page on the Android 11 update of the Xiaomi Mi A3.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 arrived in 2017 in what seemed like a winning combination: Xiaomi hardware and Google software. Over time, it has become clear that the plan had some cracks: Delays and failed updates have accompanied a series that, perhaps, won’t continue.
One of the models that have suffered the greatest number of errors in updates is the Xiaomi Mi A3. The phone suffered bizarre errors, once a Mexican firmware was sent to the global models.
The update to Android 11 was long time expected until December 31, 2020, when an error-ridden update was published. Within days, Xiaomi stopped the rollout and, after fixing the bug, it resumed with a frustrating omission: The screen recorder, one of Android 11’s new features, was missing.
Now, Xiaomi is sending the January security patch, latest security fixes, and the screen recorder to Xiaomi Mi A3 with a 329MB download. Finally, the update to Android 11 of the Xiaomi Mi A3 can be considered as completed. Considering that it launched with Android Pie, it is quite likely to be the last chapter in Xiaomi’s Android One updates.
