    Xiaomi's MIUI 13 over Android 12 has been out about a year. Are you asking about Android 13?
    I don't have that, but don't expect it on my two 2020 devices.
    There are some sources that give a rough indication of when updates are expected or have arrived for different models globally.

    Ahh You meant the Xiaomi 13 devices. I can't answer that but have noticed a few reviews. Probably only in China for now.

    They have not been listed in the UK as yet. Probably from March.

    I have seen all the reviews........I was just wondering has anyone on here imported one yet.

    Should be a near perfect device (for my needs)

    I wish they had gone with the curved edge, 2k screen (just in the smaller form factor)

    I didn't look at it much yet. There are a few Xiaomi models I fancy, if at a reduced price that are around 6 months old.

    There are not many AC members who have Xiaomi as they are not in the States. You never know who may reply though.

    I'm also waiting with bated breath. It will be very interesting to see what they bring to the table.

    Xiaomi all the way for me.

    I found a website (Bludiode) that is selling the Xiaomi 13 in the beautiful Red colour.... 12gb - 512gb with what they describe as a "Global ROM with Google" for just under €800

    I'm a bit worried that the ROM won't be official and the phone won't get it's software & security updates.

    I know for a fact....that spec/colour won't be available to me in Ireland when the phone gets its official worldwide release.


    I'm very close to taking a chance on it!!

    Opinions welcome.

    I can't guide you in your decision. That supplier seems to have generally good reviews on Trustpilot, but their buyers seem more at the mercy of delivery delays out of their control, in some instances. You would possibly be better waiting for official sales here.
    I spent my first 27 years in Ireland, and more than that in the UK since; and I see Xiaomi have an official Irish store site as well.
    Regarding the version you receive, you probably know their are generally three Xiaomi model versions. If that site promise the Global version, with the model ending in DG, and not DC (Chinese version) or DI (India) then I would think you will be OK for update support going forward. Many in the US import Xiaomi and don't seem to complain about updates. I see some selling on eBay stating they will be the Chinese version.

    I bought two models within a month in September 2020 as I couldn't resist the flagship spec Poco F2 Pro 256gb for £294 after just buying a Mi 10 Lite 5G with 64gb unexpandable.

    If you do buy and receive one just search for updates as soon as you set up.
    You would either see an automcally generated Mi/Xiaomi account number iirc and fill out your details. Then you would be able to use built in support apps where you can request help and send diagnostic logs if there is any issue.



    Again, personally Xiaomi devices appeal to be more when they receive early discounts and £700 / €800 is a lot for a device that may drop, but Xiaomi have good long term update policies on higher models now.

    I am considering it....

    Just waiting for answers to a couple of questions from the supplier (mainly to do with OTA software updates)
