Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 11 update no longer bricks phones, but some issues persist

Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 11 update no longer bricks phones, but some issues persist

You should think that Xiaomi has learned its lesson when it comes to Android updates as the manufacturer has long been battling faulty releases that brick or otherwise affect phones left and right. But that doesn't seem to be the case.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 won't ship with a charger in the box

In a new post on Chinese social media network Weibo, Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun unveiled the brand's new device's packaging, mentioning it's particularly light and thin. Even though it may seem particularly odd for a CEO to post about a new phone's box rather than the device itself, there's actually an underlying explanation for that: The main reason why the packaging is thin and light is because it's been stripped out of the customary charger that usually comes with the handset.
