Eleven Xiaomi smartphones to join Android Q Beta

Yordan, 14 June 2019

While companies like Huawei, Google, and OnePlus have devices that already got the Android Q Beta, Xiaomi is only now unveiling which phones will receive the next Google OS. Today the company posted a list of 11 smartphones that will run take part in the beta program - nine of them are scheduled for Q4 2019, while two more will get it between January and March 2020.

Phone Android Q Schedule
Xiaomi Mi 9 Q4 2019
Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro
Xiaomi Redmi K20
Xiaomi Mi 8
Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro
Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro Q1 2020
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7

Interestingly enough, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro arrived earlier than most of the flagships listed, but they are the only two with the integration postponed. Apparently, time of launch has nothing to do with it and Xiaomi is betting on its flagship series Mi and Mi Mix to taste the new Android OS first.

At the end of May, we spotted the Redmi K20 Pro appearing in the Android Q Beta program with steps how to install it and what bugs are expected, but now the announcement from China talks specifically about the MIUI integration with the Android OS. This means that even if the Redmi flagship is ready for Q, it will not officially run it once the Xiaomi team has the Mi user interface ready.

They are cheap here in Norway. I checked prices in Sweden and Redmi Note 7 models are cheap there as well. Where are you located if they are expensive?

I was hoping to see the Mi 8 SE on this list.
