Those who rely on Android One devices generally do so for the certainty with which future operating system updates should arrive promptly and reliably, but above all because after Google-branded devices, these should also receive the major OS releases first, just like the new Android 10. It will be a paradox, but in reality the owners of Xiaomi Mi A3 lately are going through really difficult moments in terms of updates n as the update to Android 10 seems to be delaying in an important way.
Some really angry users even petitioned by moving the development team that had committed to the firmware debut in mid-February. The month has come to an end but there is no trace of Android 10. The reason for the new delay comes to us from one of the managers of the Indian division of Xiaomi, who through a tweet gives his reasons for the delay, to be attributed to the events triggered by the Coronavirus.
At Xiaomi, business is critical but the value of human life is the topmost priority. We are working towards getting the final certification on the update and will communicate the rollout plan very soon.
I thank each one of you for your patience and continued support. (2/2)

Coronvirus also affects Xiaomi Mi A3: Android 10 delayed again
A justification that could also be accepted but that leaves a bad taste in the mouth, as not only the update to Android 10 for Mi A3 expected in mid-February has not arrived but a new date or timeline has not been announced. relative to the rollout. In China, many offices and commercial activities have been closed by the stop imposed by the Coronavirus emergency, implying slowdowns and delays in multiple sectors, but honestly from a technologically advanced country such as China, for certain work situations such as those related to software updates we would have expected a sort of telework that could have carried forward the advancement of the much coveted update to Android 10 for Mi A3.
Surely the update will arrive but the company of the users seems to be running out even if being the devil's advocate I don't understand why so much fuss for a simple update. It's true, Xiaomi Mi A3 is part of the Android One program and therefore users expect a privileged way for what concerns the updates, especially when it comes to an upgrade of the operating system, but at this point we were not better when all this did not exist, with devices that were used only to call and send SMS and why not, maybe to spend some moments of leisure with the mythical Snake game? And what do you think, are you among the angry fans or are you patient like a Tibetan monk?
Good news instead for the rest of the users related to MIUI, as from today, Xiaomi has resumed the development of the weekly Chinese versions of MIUI 11 for the supported devices. Therefore, if nothing changes in their plans again, a public official update will be released today February 27. It is worth noting that Redmi Note 7 Pro is still in the closed test phase for Android 10 and that the exact timing of the public firmware release is still unknown. We hope that all this situation due to the cursed virus will soon be resolved and that everything will return to normal.
