Xiaomi has finally started rolling out the Android 11 update for the Redmi K20 smartphone in India. The handset was originally launched in the country in 2019 with MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. The Redmi K20 was then upgraded to the Android 10 version last year. The Android 11 update for the Redmi K20 was originally released way back in February this year, but it took the brand more than five months to release in India.
