Xiaomi has posted some bad news for Redmi Note 8 owners who were excited about receiving an Android 10 update for their smartphone. It seems the Chinese OEM has had to suspend the update process because of “some major bugs”. The Redmi Note 8 and Note 8T were released in August 2019.

The protracted tale of the Redmi Note 8 Android 10 update saga has taken yet another surprising turn that will undoubtedly dismay owners of the hugely popular Xiaomi smartphone. Just as the company finally started releasing the Android 10 update for the Redmi Note 8, the process had to be almost immediately suspended.

We recently reported about MIUI 12 development being halted for the Redmi Note 8 because the phone was being prepped to receive the much-anticipated Android 10 update. Apparently, according to PiunikaWeb, the Android 10 update rollout for the Redmi Note 8 had already started, but the discovery of “some major bugs” has now led to its suspension.

Xiaomi has not revealed what the bugs were; however, Redmi Note 8 owners can still download the firmware (link below in "sources") if they want to utilize Android 10, but it’s very important to note here that if Xiaomi has ceased the update because of major issues, it might be best to wait for now. Users downloading the software do so at their own risk.

Redmi Note 8 owners will now have to wait until at least early July before any Android 10 update rollout recommences. The Dragon Boat Festival is starting soon in China, so Xiaomi’s engineers will be busy enjoying a rest during the holiday period. Work in regard to MIUI 12 beta updates and this particular Redmi Note 8 issue is expected to begin again from July 3.
