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. Over the holidays, the company tried to roll out Android 11 to the Xiaomi Mi A3 running Android One, and owners report on Reddit and the company's own forum that it bricks their phones. Now the company has released a revised version of the update, though that comes with problems of its own.

That's bound to change for the Mi A3, though, as Xiaomi has started to roll out Android 10 to the handset.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Android 10 rollout resumes with broader availability

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Android 10 rollout resumes with broader availability

Xiaomi doesn’t have the strongest presence in the Android One space, while most of its popular handsets run a heavily customized (and better supported) software skin. The Chinese company has a habit of running into trouble when updating its Mi A-series phones with the latest Android builds,sometimes causing more problems than they fix in the first place. Hot on the heels of the Mi A3 fiasco just last week, a new Android 10 update for Mi A2 Lite is similarly up to no good, with word of it bricking handsets.

Xiaomi's Android One-toting Mi A3 is official: 48MP camera and in-screen fingerprint scanner for €250

After recent leaks, we knew Xiaomi would soon be introducing its latest Android One phone, and now the Mi A3 has been officially unveiled. Its predecessors were pretty well received, so we have high hopes for this one. For just €250 it offers a 48MP sensor as part of a triple camera setup, an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and a 6-inch AMOLED display (Edit: Sadly it's only HD+, 720x1520 — no wonder they didn't emphasize that in the PR) with a waterdrop notch.
