Xiaomi has announced that it will begin seeding its own official Android 12 beta to some of its devices in the Mi 11 series after Google today showcased an in-depth look at the OS during the official keynote at Google I/O 2021 while also updating the OS from Developer Preview to Beta status.
Similar to last year, the first three Developer Preview updates are already out and available only for Pixel smartphones, while the first Beta update will finally allow more device manufacturers to offer the new update to a wider range of devices.
According to Xiaomi, the Mi 11 Ultra, the Mi 11 Pro (China only), the Mi 11, and the Mi 11i (Mi 11X Pro/Redmi K40 Pro) will be joining the Android 12 Beta (Developer Preview) Program. It is expected that the new Android 12 Beta update for the aforementioned devices will be released with a look and feel that’s closer to AOSP rather than AOSP with MIUI on top which will follow along later in the year.
At this stage, devices in the first Beta 1 rollout are the ones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. For example, ASUS’s ZenFone 8, OPPO’s Find X3 Pro, OnePlus’s 9 and 9 Pro, and Realme’s GT are the only phones from the respective companies to join the beta program today.
