Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro Summary
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro impressed us during our time with them, but there is no escaping that they are strange smartphones. On the one hand, they are essentially the same device, with Xiaomi even selling them under the same name in China. Additionally, they are a blatant rip-off of the Huawei P30 Pro, but the inclusion of a Snapdragon 730G prevents them from being considered flagship smartphones. The Mi Note 10 series are not mid-range devices either, though.
Stranger still, Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro on Android 9.0 Pie builds of MIUI 11, despite having already upgraded the Mi 9 to Android 10. The Mi Note 10 series has not received Android 10 since either, and that does not look like changing any time soon.
Xiaomi has now started pushing V126.96.36.199.PFDMIXM and V188.8.131.52.PFDEUXM to Global and EU handsets, respectively. As the screenshots below demonstrate, both just introduce the February 2020 security patch, a patch that is already a month old.
While Xiaomi is yet to confirm when it will bring Android 10 to the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Pro or even the Mi CC9 Pro, it may not be that far off. The latter has received Android 10 on the weekly branch of MIUI, although that is not an indicator of how far off Xiaomi are from releasing the equivalent stable builds.
Overall, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro have received second-rate software support so far. Released on an older version of Android, today’s update is the first security patch update since January, an update that brought the December 2019 itself. If you have not received a notification to update your handset to the new builds, then you can manually download V184.108.40.206.PFDMIXM and V220.127.116.11.PFDEUXM from the corresponding hyperlinks.
