The Redmi 8 is the latest Xiaomi device to get the Android 10 with an OTA update. A report from China says that users in the country have received the MIUI 11 version V188.8.131.52.QCNCNXM based on Android 10. The Redmi 8 launched in October of 2019 with the Android 9 Pie, and is now receiving the Android 10 update almost 8 months later.
This update brings a number of new features with it alongside a June Android security patch. The latest update has the build number MIUI 184.108.40.206.QCNCNXM and is about 2GB in size. This update brings all the improvements of the Android 10 alongside an upgraded June 2020 security patch.
Users are advised to back up their data before upgrading their device, as some apps seem to have compatibility issues with the new update. With users in China already receiving the update, the update is expected to roll out in other regions in the next few weeks.
With Xiaomi looking to bring MIUI 12 to more of its devices, it is great to see that they have not totally abandoned other devices and are still updating their older smartphones to Android 10. The company has specified that Redmi 8 is due to receive MIUI 12 update in the coming months.
