Xiaomi has announced that the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A and the Redmi S2 won’t receive their MIUI-based Android 9 Pie update. The company revealed this to the users via its official forum, however, the reason behind this suspension hasn’t been disclosed. The announcement is meant for Chinese versions of these smartphones, but it’s unlikely that Xiaomi will update the international versions and not the Chinese ones.
Note that the Redmi S2 launched in May 2018 and is known as Redmi Y2 outside China. The Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A, on the other hand, were launched in June last year. So all of them are less than a year old and seeing them not getting the Android 9.0 Pie is a surprise and the users may not be happy about this decision.
Back in March, Xiaomi shared its roadmap for the Android 9.0 Pie update that is set to reach Mi and Redmi phones. Interestingly, these Redmi phones were also mentioned in the list, but now the plans are suspended and the news is indeed disappointing for the owners.
But a Weibo user believes that the Redmi S2 Android 9.0 Pie update may not be dead and the company is likely to soon restarted the update process for it.
