Incomprehensible movements in the industry there are kicking, but that does not mean that they do not annoy a good number of users. The last case leaves us Xiaomi, a brand so used to launching a large number of products throughout the year that it manages to hide how many of them are left to their own devices.
And by default, we mean software level. Obviously, the mobiles will continue to have a guarantee that allows repairs in case of failure, but in cases such as the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5GWe must forget about receiving new system updates. Or at least that ensures the question and answer department Mi Community, the official forum of the brand that claims that “There are no update plans for the 5G variant of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3”.
Without MIUI 12 for the Mi Mix 3 5G … or MIUI 11?
Usually Xiaomi provides at least 3 MIUI updates for most of your devices, going through 2 major Android changes. Unfortunately, it seems that the first 5G model The brand has not enjoyed the expected success as it is still running its launch software: MIUI 10 based on Android Pie.
A user asks the brand «What about the 5G variant? »And the answer is totally hopeless:
From the information we have, there are no upgrade plans for the 5G variant. We don’t know when an update might arrive, so please avoid asking about it. Any key information about a possible update will be announced in the corresponding forum.
Since the brand does not give sales figures, it seems that the Mi Mix 3 5G’s commercial journey outside China has turned out to be a real fiasco, which is why the company seems to have abandoned plans to update it even to MIUI 11 and , therefore, to Android 10. A request was created in Change.org urging Xiami to release the MIUI 11 update for the phone and, although the brand then confirmed that the mobile would be updated directly to MIUI 12Now this seems to be in the air after the statements of the firm’s department.
Now it only remains to know if this statement made in the brand’s forum is an error or if, being more recent, Xiaomi has realized that going ahead with the development of the operating system for the Mi Mix 3 5G is a worthless investment of effort.
