Redmi 6 Pro MIUI 10 update

  • MIUI 10 global beta coming soon
  • Stable version expected in late Q4 2018

Xiaomi launched MIUI 10 at the tail end of May 2018 and while several handsets have received the stable version in China and we recently came across a stable version for the global Redmi S2, the Redmi 6 Pro still comes with MIUI 9 out of the box. When unveiling it, though, the company confirmed that MIUI 10 is coming soon.

Of course, we expect the beta version to release first (probably in September 2018) before the stable version comes out somewhere in November or December 2018.

Update [Sep 14, 2018]: Xiaomi has opened up the beta program for those willing to join, but you must submit your interest by September 26th. More details here.

Redmi 6 Pro Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie update expected in Q2 or Q3 2019

Xiaomi hasn’t given out clearer details about when Android 9 Pie will be released for the Redmi 6 Pro. Still, we expect to see the device receive at least one major OS upgrade and that’s Pie, but when exactly this will happen remains unknown. Our guess is that this could happen somewhere in Q2 or Q3 2019

Xiaomi has been busy with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and our hope is that this should ease the company’s works on Android Pie updates for the various phones using this chipset, including the Redmi 6 Pro.

Devices in the Redmi series usually get one major OS upgrade, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take an early look at what Google is already cooking with Android Q, the natural successor to Pie.
