It is too early to talk about that and just numbers...

T5 is a new device.
For now it makes sense firmware updates for android 9.

This is not a question that can be answered by Minix, if Amlogic decide to release the SDK for any higher or future releases of Android then Minix will most certainly release it for the T5 as they have done for previous devices.

Does this machine stay at pie 9?
Who are you kidding?? minix don't support their devices by keeping them up to date with the latest secure firmware, once a device is released they do a couple of bug fixes then forget about it.

Nek minute your device is unsecure and running an old version of android.

Although I do agree that Minix have dropped the ball regarding support as of late let us not forget that these are media boxes and not mobile phones where security is vital, I watch Kodi on mine and would never dream of doing banking on them let alone use my official Google account, this goes for any brand or no name brand of Android media box I might use period.

Regardless, of what your usage is for these products, it is poor form from minix with no updates in two years, it won't be long until more apps on the google play store stop supporting this older version of android and our media devices become useless.

some people do more than just run kodi

As agreed in my opening sentence.
some people do more than just run kodi
And I agree again, they run sideloaded apps that bring them free IPTV etc, only fair to warn the masses that this a security risk and rather not treat it as a secure device, I wouldn't thats all I'm saying.
older version of android
Android 9 is hardly old, there are a good few years left in this little media box. But in fairness I see where you are coming from so for security and uptodate firmware I can only recommend you go for the top of the range competitor box, you know the one who makes graphics cards with a distinct green logo.
