An interesting suggestion regarding MIUI 13 release dates was voiced by a super moderator on the Mi Community forum. Along with this, the updated list of Xiaomi, Redmi, POCO, and Black Shark devices that can receive the MIUI 13 update has now been replenished with the POCO C3, Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha, and smartphones of the new Mi 10T line.
Super moderator posted possible MIUI 13 release date on the forum community Xiaomi Mi. In response to a question regarding the expected release date of MIUI 13 (the question was clearly not from the user Redmi Note 8), the Manwex moderator posted the following answer: “MIUI 13 will be presented in the second quarter of 2021”… It looks like this is roughly the expected timeline for starting the rollout of the MIUI 12 skin successor, but this needs to be treated with a grain of salt, as even a super moderator has less information than any senior Xiaomi software engineer.
Predicted listings of Xiaomi devices and brand-related smartphones that will receive the MIUI 13 update have begun to appear, and some of them look definitely more optimistic than others. For example, there are speculations that Redmi 4, Mi Mix 2, and, yes, Redmi Note 8 will be considered candidates for the MIUI 13 update. Fortunately, a more plausible prediction has been published, which does not include smartphones released in 2016 and the poor old Redmi Note 8.
The list includes the following devices:
- Xiaomi Mi 10T, Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10T Pro
- Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Lite, Mi Note 10 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 10 5G, Mi 10 Youth 5G, Mi 10 Lite 5G, Mi 10 Pro 5G, Mi 10 Ultra
