Xiaomi Mi A3, the third Android One device from the Chinese company, will get Android 10 update next month. The smartphone maker rolled out Android 10 update for Mi A2 last week. Now, it has confirmed that Mi A2 successor is set to get the update in February. The confirmation came in the form of a reply to a user query. Xiaomi has been pushing out the newest version of Android for a number of its devices. The company was also among the first to release the new software when Google made Android 10 official in September last year.

Once the update becomes official, Xiaomi Mi A3 will join the growing list of devices that have received the newest version of Android. There is a possibility that Xiaomi is ironing out bugs before the release. The Mi A3 is one of the earliest devices to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 mobile platform. Since it is based on Android One platform, customers expected the device will get the update sooner than later. Despite being out for more than four months, Google has not detailed the market share of Android 10.
Thanks for your excitement and patience. Glad to announce the update will be out in mid February for Mi A3.
