While all Redmi Note 11 devices come with MIUI 13 out of the box, the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G surprisingly comes out of the box with MIUI 12.5! What kind of surprise is this Xiaomi?
Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G came out of the box with Android 11 based MIUI 13 out of the box. Unfortunately, Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G will come out of the box with Android 11 based MIUI 12.5. This move to the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G gives us bad news in the future. Even if we ignore the fact that it comes out of the box with Android 11, unfortunately we cannot ignore that it comes with MIUI 12.5. Because that will really give us bad news 2 years from now. Users who want to buy Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G should pay attention to this.
We noticed recently that the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G is getting the MIUI 13 update. But unfortunately the standard Mi 9 is not getting the MIUI 13 update. When we investigated the reason for this, Mi 9 came out with MIUI 10 out of the box, while Mi 9 Pro 5G came out with MIUI 11 out of the box. Since it has the right to receive one more update, only Mi 9 Pro 5G receives the MIUI 13 update among devices using Snapdragon 855. When we look today, the same policy can be applied. So Redmi Note 11 Pro may receive one more update than Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. This update policy of Xiaomi upsets users who want to spend more money and get better devices. Hopefully, Xiaomi will avoid this situation and can give an update more. Otherwise, Redmi users will be very upset that their phones are EOL early.
Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G will be introduced in the Global market on March 29. More than two phones will be introduced with this event. You can read the list of these phones and information about the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G here and here.
