Xiaomi and Poco share update schedule: you can expect this

Xiaomi brings clarity about the update support of its smartphones, and that also applies to the Redmi and Poco devices. Phones can continue to count on updates and monthly patches for two years.

Xiaomi’s update schedule

Xiaomi has grown strongly in recent months and can now call itself the second largest smartphone manufacturer. However, the brand always remained vague about the support of its devices, and that was also apparent when we asked the brand for more clarity about this. Xiaomi is now breaking that silence and providing more information about the security updates of its devices.

“We will release monthly security patches and quarterly updates for Xiaomi devices for at least two years after the product goes on sale,” the brand’s website reads. “Monthly and quarterly updates include Android security patches released by Google, as well as patches for specific Xiaomi issues.”

Update overview

Only Xiaomi’s Android One phones can count on those monthly updates, namely: the Mi A3, Mi A2, and Mi A2 Lite. All other phones including the flagships will receive quarterly updates.

Raise your teeth?

It seems that there are a few quirks in the update overview. For example, the Mi 11 Ultra and the Mi 11 Lite can be seen in the list, but the regular Mi 11 and the Pro version are missing. In addition, the Mi A3 seems to be wrongly part of the list, because it gets monthly updates. Finally, know that not all phones from this list are also for sale with us.

What do you think about the information Xiaomi shares about device support. Should Xiaomi step up its update policy now that most of its competitors are updating their devices for longer? Samsung is offering four years of updates for certain Galaxy phones, OPPO will support devices for three years and Google would soon offer five years of support.
