Google has made Android 10 official and the update is rolling out to all Pixel smartphones. The Android 10 update will bring new features like a system-wide Dark mode theme, new navigation gestures with a single button at the bottom, and improved location privacy for users.
While all Pixel phones, from the original Pixel to the recently introduced Pixel 3a series have been upgraded to Android 10, other smartphone manufacturers have started rolling out Android 10 beta updates for customers.
Redmi K20 Pro and Android 10 beta
The Redmi K20 Pro is getting Android 10 in China and in India, but this is just a beta version. The Android 10 beta is still based on MIUI 10, but in order to download it in India you will need a beta developer account. This is not a public beta, which any user can download. An beta account, authorised by Xiaomi is needed for this as confirmed to us by company executives.
