Admin of Xiaomi forum, J C Paul has posted a short warning regarding the update, in Xiaomi forum :
Okay, bit of a public service announcement.
V18.104.22.168.QFQMXTC (not QFQMIXM) is rolling out to the Mi A3 global users via OTA, but, PLEASE DO NOT UPDATE!
There was a serious bug in the latest rom (V11.0.3), if you are on this build, you have only one working SIM (it does not recognise the other one whatsoever).
We will try to see if there is a fix, BUT… once again… DO NOT UPDATE (if you have not already)!
