Mi 8 SE MIUI 10 update

Xiaomi Mi 8 SE comes preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top, but the device has since been upgraded to the stable version of MIUI 10, the latest version so far. With the global MIUI 10 yet to be made available, the current version is meant for the Chinese market, meaning you don’t get Google Apps and services out of the box (you will have to install the apps manually), although it supports the English language.

When exactly the global MIUI 10 rollout will be made available is only known to Xiaomi, but as noted, we will update this page if and when we get new info.

Mi 8 SE Android 9 Pie update

With Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, we never doubted the Mi 8 SE will be updated to Android 9 Pie.

However, we hardly expected an update to be made available before the end of 2018, but as it stands, the Mi 8 SE will receive an update, most probably beta, to Android 9 Pie in Q4 2018.

It will be joining the Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro, Mi 8 EE, Mi MIX 2S, and probably the Poco F1, in receiving the Android Pie update in Q4, with the latter having already made the switch.

Only time will tell.
