MIUI 10 global stable ROM is official, update rolling out to Redmi Y2 (aka Redmi S2)

A few days ago, Xiaomi announced that MIUI 10 stable rollout had commenced in China and while we knew the global ROM’s update was next in line, there was no mention of the expected release date. But this is no more.

Thanks to an official post published in the company’s forums, we can now confirm that MIUI 10 global stable rollout has commenced. The update has been confirmed for the Redmi Y2, a device that is known outside India as the Redmi S2 and is expected to expand to other devices such as India’s Redmi Note 5 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi MIX 2 and even the Mi 8 SE, among others.
