Xiaomi itself confirmed a delay in the update to Android 10 for the Xiaomi Mi A3 due to the COVID-19 virus, which had forced the company to minimize the staff of some of its development centers. Luckily, little by little, everything seems to be returning to normal, and today the kernel source code based on Android 10 for the Mi A3 has been released, so the arrival of the new version should be imminent.
Of course, it is possible that owners of a Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite, or Mi A3 itself decide to wait before installing the update on their phones once it is available, because once the new version based on Android 10 is installed, no it will be possible to return to Android 9.
At least that is how the company itself has confirmed it in its official forum, where it explains in a statement that, because “Android 10 introduces a good number of irreversible updates to the system”, trying to install a previous version could lead to the appearance of “defects and errors in the normal operation of the device.”
Going back to Android 9 from Android 10 will not be safe on the latest Xiaomi with Android One.
As of today, several weeks have passed since the Xiaomi Mi A2 began to receive its corresponding update to Android 10. The vast majority of owners of the device should already have the new version installed on their phones.
However, shortly after this update was released, some issues appeared that led the company to temporarily suspend its arrival. Currently, these bugs have already been corrected through a patch released a few weeks ago. The Mi A2 Lite, meanwhile, remains on the list of Xiaomi phones pending receiving the new version.
The case of the Mi A3 is somewhat different: since the update has not yet been released, it is unknown if it could arrive with some failure or problem, so it is not surprising that taking into account the impossibility of returning to Android 9, some owners of the terminal decide to wait before updating their phones until they hear the experience of the first “brave.”
