You must be familiar with the drill now. Xiaomi rolls out an update for the Mi A3. It comes with bugs. Xiaomi advises to not download the update and then pauses the roll out. Later, it rolls out a new update fixing the issue. It has happened yet again.
Xiaomi has had troubles with rolling out updates for the Mi A3. The company rolled out the Android 10 update for its Android One smartphone a number of times before getting it right.
It seems like Xiaomi is again having troubles, but with the Android 11 roll out this time around. Recently, it rolled out the latest Android OS update for its Mi A3 phones, which caused some of them to brick. As a result, the company had to stop the rollout. It issued an apology soon after but there was no fix in sight. Now, Xiaomi has announced that it will be fixing these broken (software-wise) Mi A3 phones for free.
The company has requested the affected Mi A3 users to visit their nearest service center and the issue will be fixed for free. It doesn’t matter if your phone is under warranty or not, it will be fixed for free. However, the lost data might not be recovered.
We are aware of the issue on some Mi A3 devices following a recent Android 11 update. We have since halted the rollout. We kindly request users who experience this issue to visit any of the 2,000 plus service centers across the country nearer to you wherein a solution will be provided for free unconditionally (within or beyond warranty).We regret the inconvenience this has brought about. As a brand committed to offering the best possible user experience, we will continuously improve our products and services.Xiaomi
