The Redmi Note 8 has been one of the global bestselling Xiaomi smartphones for the past few quarters since its release. Unfortunately, this handset is still running Android Pie although it was updated to MIUI 11 a long time back. But now, finally, after a year from its launch, the device is receiving Android 10 update along with MIUI 12 in China.
Redmi Note 8Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has begun to roll out MIUI 12 to Redmi Note 7 series and Redmi Note 9 series worldwide. However, the Redmi Note 8 users were left out not only for MIUI update but also for Android 10.
Thankfully, the company has finally started to roll out them together in China with build number V18.104.22.168.QCOCNXM. Since it is the initial stable build, it is being seeded out to limited random users in the firm’s home country. In case you do not know, Xiaomi calls this sort of builds as “Stable Beta”.
If the early adopters don’t face any serious issues, the same build will be made available for more users in the coming days. Further, going by the company’s MIUI 12 rollout pattern, the global variants of this phone should get the update sometime later in October.
Having said that, the Redmi Note 8 is not eligible for Android 11 but it should receive MIUI 13 when it gets released.
