Mi A2 Lite Android Pie update

  • Beta recruitment ongoing
  • Pie expected in early Q1 2019

Update: Beta to begin on or after November 18th.

Having enjoyed significant success with the original Xiaomi Mi A1, the company went full-in, giving it two successors, the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Right from the onset, though, the latter has mostly been presented as the inferior variant, which, rightly, it is. For this reason, the Mi A2 Lite will mostly be trailing the Mi A2 in software updates and with the former expected to get Pie before the end of 2018, we can only hope that the Mi A2 Lite, despite its Android One status, follows suit in Q1 2019.
