While companies like Huawei, Google, and OnePlus have devices that already got the Android Q Beta, Xiaomi is only now unveiling which phones will receive the next Google OS. Today the company posted a list of 11 smartphones that will run take part in the beta program – nine of them are scheduled for Q4 2019, while two more will get it between January and March 2020.
Interestingly enough, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro arrived earlier than most of the flagships listed, but they are the only two with the integration postponed. Apparently, time of launch has nothing to do with it and Xiaomi is betting on its flagship series Mi and Mi Mix to taste the new Android OS first.
At the end of May, we spotted the Redmi K20 Pro appearing in the Android Q Beta program with steps how to install it and what bugs are expected, but now the announcement from China talks specifically about the MIUI integration with the Android OS. This means that even if the Redmi flagship is ready for Q, it will not officially run it once the Xiaomi team has the Mi user interface ready.
