Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro MIUI 10 update
- Beta update available for download
- Stable version expected in December 2018
Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro was expected to debut with MIUI 10 atop Android 8.1 Oreo, but it wasn’t the case. As of this writing, Xiaomi has opened the doors for Mi 8 Pro users across the globe to try the beta version of MIUI 10, but it’s still based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The update carries version 8.11.23, which can be grabbed from the table above, at least for those who are yet to get the download notification.
Also, it is now possible to install the Google Camera app on your Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro after the app was ported to not only the standard Mi 8 but also other Xiaomi phones powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and have the Camera2 API enabled. More details here.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Android 9 Pie update
- Beta available in China
- Global beta to join the party in December 2018
If the user already has MIUI 10 China Stable ROM, then updating is a simple task: download Android 9 Pie via MIUI Updater (in System Settings). If not, with an unlocked bootloader in the globally distributed Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, the user can get the update via TWRP.
But hey, you don’t have to go through all the hassle when its clear that the global variant will be receiving the Pie-based MIUI 10 beta update pretty soon, probably even during the first week of December 2018.
