Xiaomi rolled out the first Android 10 for Mi A3 back in March. Immediately many reports surfaced online regarding fingerprint related issues and many more bugs. Since the company announced anti-rollback protection for this device, users cannot rollback their phones to an older version.
Xiaomi then discontinued the update and released another update with some bug fixes. Again the same thing repeated, and the buggy update forced the company to stop the update for the second time.
History repeated for the third time, too, and the update was again buggy. Being a part of the Android One program also, the device was unable to get a clean Android 10 update. Finally, the Android 10 for Mi A3 for the fourth time seems to be lucky for the users. Furthermore, the company appeared to learn a lesson with the previous mistakes, and it has decided to release the update to only 1% of the Mi A3 users and that too, excluding India.
Again, the Android 10 for Mi A3 was made available to 5% users stating, “The system update now is available to 5% of users. We are not notified of any serious problems, so it will be made available to 10% of users. Further steps depend on user feedback.”
And now, this month, the Android 10 update for Mi A3 started to roll out region wise. First, it started the update in Japan and then in Europe.
Thereafter, the company updated, “The system update is at the moment available to 70% of users (excluding India). Further steps depend on user feedback.” Now, the latest update is that Android 10 for Mi A3 is available for 80% of the devices. It stated, “The system update is at the moment available to 80% of users. We were not notified of any serious problems, so it will be made available to 90% of users (excluding India).”
It is not clear why Xiaomi is excluding the Indian market for the roll-out of Android 10 on Mi A3.
