Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite MIUI 10 update

  • Stable update available for download
  • Beta program open for global users

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite was launched in September 2018 and even though MIUI 10 was already available, the device still came running MIUI 9 on top Android 8.1 Oreo. This, however, didn’t last long as Xiaomi has already updated the device to the stable version of MIUI 10.0.3, even before rolling out the global beta program.

It’s worth noting that Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite has been trialing MIUI 10 beta in China for some time and in fact, the stable version rolled out in the Asian country a while ago, so it was only a matter of time before the same appeared on the global variant.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie update expected in Q1 2019
  • Beta version may roll out before the end of 2018

As already pointed out, Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite comes preinstalled with Oreo 8.1 and thus is entitled to an update to Android 9 Pie, probably the one and only OS upgrade the device will ever see. Xiaomi hasn’t said it publicly, but we expect a beta version to roll out before the end of 2018 followed by a stable released later in Q1 2019.

Of course, the stable Pie update will have MIUI 10 running on top.
