Xiaomi Mi 8 MIUI 10 update

  • Stable update available for standard Mi 8

Xiaomi Mi 8 was expected to debut with MIUI 10 atop Android 8.1 Oreo and in fact, this is what some of us thought, but it wasn’t the case. As of this writing, Xiaomi has opened the doors for Mi 8 users across the globe, including in Russia, to install the stable MIUI 10 update, but it’s still based on Android 8.1 Oreo.


Update [Sep 29]: It is now possible to install the Google Camera app on your Xiaomi Mi 8 after the app was ported to not only the Mi 8 but also other Xiaomi phones powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and have the Camera2 API enabled. More details here.
