While the update is currently rolling out only in China, it shouldn’t be long before it’s rolled out to other markets such as India as well.
Redmi K20 had already received the MIUI 11 update back in October, but that was based on Android 9.0 Pie. The update brought new dynamic themes to the always-on display, and moved all the essential information to display on the screen 24/7. The new MIUI skin adds nature sounds for alarm ringtones and notification sounds that dynamically change depending on the time. The new Mi Share lets you transfer files between device easily and more quickly. There’s also a new screenshot editing tools right after it’s taken and the App vault lets you swipe down to view more shortcuts now, and the app itself gets new UI and design.
