As part of this announcement, the company’s Head of Product & Technology, Albert Shan, said:
With the continuous improvements being made to the smartphone hardware, the smartphone’s lifecycle will gradually increase, which means that users will not be required to replace their smartphone so often. For this reason, more and more people place more emphasis on downloading the latest and most recent operating system, along with all the new features.
Xiaomi is expanding the lifecycle of smartphones, officially announcing three generations of updates to the Android os. So they will be able to keep their smartphone for longer, enjoy all the latest features, while at the same time we will provide security updates to ensure the security of the devices for a longer period of time.
At the moment, there is no question of whether the company will extend this policy to other devices. However, it is looking at the possibility.
