Xiaomi Redmi K20 was released a couple of months ago with MIUI 10 and today it’s getting the stable MIUI 11 Global update. MIUI 11 brings an overhauled UI and plenty of changes under the hood, but it’s still based on Android 9.
The OTA update is 766MB big and also carries the September 2019 security patch. A more simplified UI awaits along with Always-on display improvements.
You might need to wait a couple of days before the update shows up on your phone. Also, we suspect that owners of the global variant, Mi 9T, of the phone should expect the new software as well. The full changelog follows.
