March 05, 2019: Xiaomi Mi 9 has its first MIUI 10 beta update ready to download. The update has version 9.3.1, suggesting that it was released on the first day of this month.
According to the brief changelog we were able to get our eyes on, the updated Mi 9 now lets users hide the notch, although this blacks out the top section of the screen. Xiaomi is also expected to include bug fixes for the power-hogging Google Play services when the next stable version comes out.
We have the download file in the table below, although only the recovery file is available at the moment. We will update the table with the fastboot file as soon as we get hold of the download link.

But that’s not why we are here, rather, this post contains all the latest news about the Mi 9 software updates, be it official or unofficial, whether minor or major Android OS upgrades. We have your back!

Xiaomi MIUI 11 update
- Eligible for MIUI 11 update
- Beta version may arrive in May 2019
The development of Xiaomi MIUI 11 is already underway, but we still don’t have an official release date for the public beta version or even details of what the update will bring to the Mi 9. Given that Xiaomi announced MIUI 10 in May 2018, it’s likely that we could see the first MIUI 11 public beta around the same time this year.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Android Q update
- Eligible for an update to Android Q
- Beta update could arrive in Q2 2019

Xiaomi hasn’t said anything regarding Android Q updates for the Mi 9. But from our educated guesses, it’s likely that the Mi 9 beta update to Q could arrive towards the end of Q2, with the stable version following suit in Q3 2019.
Again, these dates are not official, so do take them with a grain of salt.
