For now, only the Xiaomi 11T
Although it is good news that Xiaomi’s next high-end devices will have a longer useful life, the truth is that it is not known for sure what will happen to all the devices the company has released so far, which are not few.
The firm assures that “other devices are not included at this time”, although it believes that “this reflects a positive change” and that it is a measure “aimed at the needs of users of the Xiaomi 11T series”.
