Users of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra, 11 and 11i smartphones have been advised against installing the Android 12 update that has been rolled out for the devices. The information comes courtesy a screenshot of a Telegram conversation, which claims that a number of users have been complaining of their smartphones getting hard bricked, following the update. The screenshot was initially shared on a Telegram channel, and has since been broadcasted across various Twitter posts.
According to the claim, “Some users have pointed out that their device is being hard bricked while installing the Android 12 update. Please do not install the Android 12 v188.8.131.52 Global Stable update if you have a Xiaomi 11 Ultra/11/11i.” MySmartPrice could not independently verify the authenticity of the screenshot that has been shared on Twitter, and given that the company has only confirmed the initiation of its Android 12 based MIUI variant in internal testing, which precedes even the public beta version of the software, it is not clear if the claim is even authentic.
Android 12 has been officially announced to be rolling out by Google, and naturally, the Pixel range of phones from Google are the first to get the update. Following this, third party OEMs have confirmed a number of devices that will get the software update, which includes the Xiaomi 11 Ultra, 11 and 11i in China for the company. However, Xiaomi has stated that in due course, it will offer the Android 12 upgrade across a number of devices in its portfolio.
The full list of devices that will get the Android 12 update from Xiaomi is as follows:
