The Xiaomi POCO X3 NFC launched with MIUI 12 based on the Android 10 OS out of the box back in September 2020. Months later, the company has finally started rolling out the Android 11 update.
An OTA(Over The Air) update with firmware version V18.104.22.168.RJGEUXM is rolling out to the users of the Xiaomi POCO X3 NFC. Here, the ‘EU’ in the firmware denotes that the update is currently live for the users of the European Economic Area (EEA).
Do note that, Xiaomi POCO X3 NFC also has other versions like Russia(RU), Indonesia(ID), Turkey(TR), Global(MI), however users in these regions will have to wait till Xiaomi expands the update to other regions. Speaking of which, the update weighs 2.5GB in size and brings the latest Android 11 update to the device.
If you recall, the POCO promised that it would keep updating the device for up to three years which means you are sure to get the next Android 12. As for another MIUI update, Xiaomi recently unveiled the MIUI 12.5 Globally.
It said that flagships like Xiaomi Mi 11 will get the update in the first wave of the rollout. And POCO X3 NFC, which is still on the MIUI 12 after the latest update, could get the intermediate MIUI 12.5 before the year ends.
Talking about the Android 11 rollout in the EU region, the update is still in the ‘Stable beta recovery’ stage meaning only a few users will get it now. After checking that it doesn’t have major bugs, Xiaomi will roll out the update to everyone in the coming days.
That said, this device, which is sold without NFC in countries like India(Xiaomi POCO X3), should also get the Android 11 update very soon.
