Android 10 is not hitting the Redmi Note 8 this month
While the Redmi Note 8 Pro started receiving Android 10 at the end of last month, there has been no such luck for the regular Redmi Note 8. Indeed, even the Redmi Note 7 Pro has started receiving Android 10 in some regions. Sadly, a new update for the Redmi Note 8 effectively scuppers the idea of the device being upgraded to Google's latest OS this month.
The update, which will arrive as an OTA, includes the following changes:
- Optimization: Increased system stability
- Optimization: Reduced system lag
If you are yet to receive V18.104.22.168.PCOMIXM, then you can download the full build manually from Xiaomi's servers. Please note that this is a 2.0 GB download. Alternatively, you can download the 457 MB OTA if your device is already running V22.214.171.124.PCOMIXM. It is worth keeping in mind that this is a Beta Stable build too, which means that it is currently being rolled out to a select number of handsets before Xiaomi initiates a wider rollout.
