The update came with version number V18.104.22.168.RJWINXM and weighs in at 2.3GB in size. The build arrived for the Indian variant of the Redmi Note 9 Pro that has the Curtana_in codename. It can’t be installed on the Global Redmi Note 9 Pro dubbed Joyeuse. For global users, this update is only relevant if you have a Redmi Note 9S. If you have a custom recovery like TWRP you can flash this update.
Worth noting that this is the first public build of Android 11 for the aforementioned device. So users may encounter some bugs as well as some stability issues. Hopefully, this upgrade won’t be as bad as it was for the Mi A3 and its Android 10 update. We expect to see Xiaomi rolling out incremental builds in the future to make it more stable. We recommend this update only for experienced users, after all, it requires a custom recovery. Moreover, make backups of your data in case something goes wrong.
Redmi Note 9 Pro / 9S specs
The Redmi Note 9 Pro launched a couple of months ago in India and is one of the most solid mid-range devices the money can pay for. It also got released in Global markets as Redmi Note 9S. It carries a Snapdragon 720G chipset, a 48MP Quad-Camera array, and a massive 5,020mAh battery with support for 18W fast-charging. The device was released with MIUI 11 running on top of Android 10 and already received an update for MIUI 12. Just a few months later, it is now getting Android 11 update. Hopefully, the same treatment will be given to other devices soon.
