Xiaomi update policy: longer, better and more updates

Next week, on September 15, we will see new high-end devices from Xiaomi. In the run-up to the event, the manufacturer has now published a blog post. It can be read that the Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro will receive longer updates. It concerns three major Android version updates. The smartphones that come on the market with Android 11 will therefore also receive updates to Android 12, 13 and 14 in the coming years.

The company also says that it will release security patches for four years, so that you are always up-to-date. Whether this new policy will also apply to all upcoming smartphones from the company is still unknown. That will probably have to do with the different price ranges of smartphones that the company releases.

Finally, Xiaomi is investigating whether it can equip current devices for longer with updates. That is not too easy, however, describes Albert Shan, head of product and technology, in the blog post. The manufacturer does not yet share further details about this.

Longer updates, also with other manufacturers

In 2021, releasing updates for a longer period has become more important than ever for many manufacturers. Several companies have recently announced a better policy. Samsung now gives many devices in the middle segment three Android updates and four years of security updates.

Then there is Nokia with the 3+3+3 strategy. In addition to a three-year warranty, this also means three major updates for Android and three years of security patches. Oppo and OnePlus also announced earlier that they would use a longer update policy and the same applies to a lesser extent to Motorola. Google is the founder of Android and with a Pixel smartphone in your pocket you have nothing to complain about updates. The upcoming Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are even rumored to receive support for five years.
