Xiaomi Redmi 6, Redmi 6A Android Pie update suspended
So, these Xiaomi smartphones aren’t getting the Android Pie update.
Xiaomi is rolling out the Android 9 Pie update topped by the custom ROM MIUI 10 to a slew of its smartphones. Now, there are claims that the company has suspended the update for the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, the two budget smartphones launched by the company back in September last year.
There are claims from users on the MIUI forums via GSMArena that the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A firmware development has been suspended quietly by the company. Eventually, both the devices will miss out on the latest iteration of the Android OS. The forum post notes "Change of Plan, Suspension of Recruitment".
Xiaomi launched these smartphones with Android 8.0 Oreo but it was assured that these smartphones will get the MIUI 10 update based on Android 9 Pie. While the Oreo-based MIUI 10 arrived on these phones, these did not get the Android 9 Pie upgrade till date.
