The Redmi Note 9 was launched months several after the release of Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, and Redmi Note 9S. Despite that, it debuted with MIUI 11 based on Android 10. Now, almost a year after its launch, the device has finally started receiving the Android 11 update.
The Redmi Note 9 is the international version of the Redmi 10X 4G launched in China. Usually, when there’s a Chinese variant of a Xiaomi device, it gets the new system update first.
Hence, the Redmi 10X 4G was the first to get MIUI 12 last year. Unsurprisingly, it was also the first to receive Android 11 earlier this year. Four months later, Xiaomi has eventually begun to roll out the very same update for the internal version of this handset called Redmi Note 9.
At the moment, the Redmi Note 9 Android 11 update is only available for the ‘Global’ and ‘Russia’ variants. The update bears build numbers V22.214.171.124.RJOMIXM and V126.96.36.199.RJORUXM respectively.
The mentioned software builds are in the ‘Stable Beta’ phase. This means they are only available for a select few users as part of the batched rollout.
Anyway, the update should make its way to all the units of these variants as well as the remaining regional variants (EEA, Turkey, India, Taiwan, Indonesia) in the coming days.
