Xiaomi launched the Redmi Y3 in India as a selfie-centric smartphone in late April 2019. The handset debuted with MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. It was later updated to MIUI 11. But unfortunately, the company canceled its MIUI 12 update in December 2020. Thankfully, the device has at least started receiving the delayed Android 10 update in the country.
The Redmi Y3 Android 10 update for India comes with build number V126.96.36.199.QFFINXM. Apart from bringing over a year-old Android version, the latest system update for the handset also bumps up the security patch level to January 2021.
The update is currently in the Stable Beta phase. Therefore, it is only available for a select few users at the moment. However, it should be available for more users if early adopters don’t face any major issues like the Mi A3 Android 11 update.
That said, the currently rolling out OTA update could be the last major system update for the Redmi Y3. That’s because out of the blue. Xiaomi canceled the MIUI 12 update for this phone along with Redmi 7, Redmi 6, and Redmi 6A in December citing performance issues.
