Xiaomi Mi 8 Android Q update

  • Stable update expected in Q4 2019

Xiaomi enrolled the Mi MIX 2S in the early access program for Android P and we expect the company to pick up from there by adding even more devices to the upcoming Android Q beta program. Nonetheless, we still expect the Mi 8 to get Android Q at some point in Q4 2019 or in early Q1 2020.
