The Android 10 update will gradually hit all the Xiaomi Redmi 7A phones in India. Users will receive a notification once the over-the-air (OTA) update reaches their device. You can also manually check for the update in the settings section. Users just need to head to Settings > About Phone > System Update. To recall, Xiaomi launched the entry-level Redmi 7A back in July 2019.
It was launched with Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 out-of-the-box. Besides, the Redmi 7A hasn’t yet received the MIUI 12 update. The Chinese company was supposed to push this update in the month of May. But, this Redmi device is expected to receive the MIUI 12 update later this year. In case you are unaware, the MIUI 12 update will add features like Ultra Battery Saver, upgraded Dark Mode, and App Drawer. Beyond privacy, it is expected to bring a “revamped UI” experience along with system-wide refreshed animations.
