But let's leave the hardware aside and let's what's important, These phones receive the new MIUI 10 update, with special features for them. Mi MIX 2S has already received its update for Android Pie, while Mi Note 3 will be coming soon. But Xiaomi has always taken great care of MIUI, its personalization layer, so you do not need Android 9 to receive the upgrade of the customization layer. So the Mi MIX 2S update is based on Android 9, while Mi Note 3 is based on Android 8.
