Xiaomi doesn’t give their users regular updates other than MIUI updates in the Note series except the Pro variants, maybe Redmi also may continue it, so we can’t guarantee anything, but the company at least provides a major update, so if that is the case, then for sure the Redmi Note 7 will receive the Android Q Update, but a bit late. Also, Note 7 was launched with Android Pie 9.0 on board, so it is guaranteed that the phone will receive the Android Q Update. We expect the Android Q to be launched in May if that is so the Redmi Note 7 may get the Android Q Update in Q1 or Q2 of 2020.
