Xiaomi and Google combine a good relationship, work closely together. Proof of "friendship" are Xiaomi smartphones with a pure android, for example the Mi A1 model and its next generations. Therefore, the company which Lei Jun commands will be one of the first to receive an official update to the latest version of Android.
In the first wave, the update will go to Xiaomi Mi 9, scheduled for the next quarter. Through the Chinese social network Weibo, MIUI developers are looking for beta testers to test new software.
In the latest version of its system, Google emphasizes security and performance. In my opinion, this is a good step. Nowadays, as much emphasis should be put on security as this is a key issue! Recently, when withdrawing money from the bank instead of identity verification by means of proof, the lady at the window asked for the SMS code which I received on the phone!
The new Android Q will be more restrictive in terms of the data to which the installed application will have access, we will have to grant permits. I advise you to read all messages carefully, it is no longer installing games / programs for sale for a few years: next, next, next, finish.
Xiaomi smartphones that will receive an update to Android Q in 2019 year are: Mi 9, Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2s, Mi Mix 3, Mi 9T. The devices will receive an update in the last quarter of the 2019 year. Redmi smartphones will be updated most probably in the first quarter of the 2020 year.
