In January, the Mi A2, Xiaomi's smartphone that is part of the Android One program, received Android 10. Shortly after, the Chinese manufacturer said that the new Google mobile OS would also arrive on the Mi A3 in February. However, the month is almost over and there has been no release, something that left fans of the brand intrigued.
Seeking to clarify the reason for the delay, Sumit Sonal, manager of Xiaomi India, revealed in his Twitter account that the coronavirus prevented the release of Android 10. "In the past few days, many of you have contacted us about the pending update of Android 10 on the Mi A3. The update was scheduled for mid-February, but has been delayed due to the global coronavirus outbreak, "said the executive.
Hi everyone, Over the past few days a lot of you have reached out to us regarding the pending Android 10 update on Mi A3. The update was scheduled for mid February but it has been delayed due to the extended shutdown due to the global outbreak of coronavirus. (1/2)

The tweet, which was split into two parts to better explain the situation, says the delay was caused by measures imposed by the Chinese government to prevent the spread of the virus, forcing companies to close several factories and offices with large numbers of employees.
Unfortunately, the executive did not say when Android 10 for the Mi A3 will actually be released, mentioning only that the company is working to obtain the final certification necessary for the beginning of the distribution. This suggests that the global implementation should not take long to happen.
