“Xiaomi” one of the manufacturers that are regular in providing updates to its custom MIUI interface, even for phones that have been launched a while ago. the Chinese company has updated their list of its devices which will be receiving updates for Android Pie and Android Oreo.
The company used its Chinese-language forum (h/t: GSMArena and MyDrivers) to publish a table of devices that will at least be receiving a beta version of software updates which will possibly get a full official rollout by the end of 2018. With a quick scan at the list, it shows that most of the devices mentioned in it are running on the older Android Oreo and very few of these are on the latest Android Pie.
According to the table, it shows that the Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 5 Plus, and Mi 5X will receive Oreo. It’s disappointing that these phones aren’t being upgraded to Pie, While the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition (known as the Pro model outside China), Mi 8 SE, and the Mi Max 3 lineup will be receiving Android Pie in the fourth quarter of 2018.
The table additionally notes that the Mi 5S Plus’s Oreo update is delayed because of unresolved software issues. Also, the forum post cautions that old phones and devices that have already received two updates are unlikely to receive another update.
