Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 11 update begins rolling out, but some say it bricks their devices


Xiaomi has started rolling out the update to Android 11 to its one and only eligible Android One device – Xiaomi Mi A3.

For some reason, Xiaomi did not update its popular Mi A series this year. Instead, the Mi A3 remains the newest in the family – and thus, by Android One standards, the only one eligible for Android 11 update.


While there was no official date announced by Xiaomi with regards to providing the Mi A3 Android 11 update, we are now seeing reports from device owners confirming the release of the OS.

The update is arriving over the air and weighs in at 1.40GB, tagging along the following changes:

– Improved notification shade
– Conversation bubbles
– Better permissions management
– Improved DND mode

Below is a screenshot from one of the few Mi A3 users that have already bagged the update to Android 11 on their handsets.

There is still no official announcement from Xiaomi regarding this update, so it may likely be a limited release to test the waters.

Speaking of testing, we already are seeing some reports from early adopters claiming that the update is bricking their devices.

Also received this update and the phone seems to be absolutely dead after installing ? No reactions at all. No energy load , nothing at all. What to do now ?

How widespread this issue is remains to be seen, but you might want to hold off for now, at least until we can put together more reports on the nature of this issue.

As usual, we will keep an eye on this situation and let you know more about it once official information comes out. Meanwhile, keep an eye on our Xiaomi Android 11 tracker to know more about this update.
