Sources claim that for Xiaomi this smartphone turned out to be a commercial “failure”
At the beginning of last year, Xiaomi introduced an updated version of the flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, which received support for fifth-generation networks. He became the first smartphone in the world with support for 5G.
Why not buy the first 5G smartphones. Xiaomi does not want to support the first 5G flagship updates
The phone was running MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. A year passed, but the operating system has not changed, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G still runs on Android 9 Pie. This angered the owners of the expensive smartphone, who created a petition on Change.org in an attempt to force the Chinese giant to update the software in this forgotten flagship.
Sources say that for Xiaomi, this smartphone turned out to be a commercial “failure”. Sales were scanty, this explains why Xiaomi does not support its updates. The phone was launched at a time when 5G networks were just taking their first steps, and many were not interested in buying smartphones with support for fifth-generation networks. At the same time, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 4G has already been updated to MIUI 11 based on Android 10.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G has no hardware restrictions for MIUI 11 and MIUI 12. It remains to wait for the Xiaomi reaction.
