The Mi Note 10 Lite receives Android 11 while the Redmi Note 8 gets a fresh OTA
Another day, another major update from Xiaomi. The Chinese company has slowly been sending out the Android 11 update to its stable of phones. Surprisingly, the latest one to join the exclusive list of phones running the latest version of Android is the Mi Note 10 Lite.
Yes, the Mi Note 10 Lite is now receiving the Android 11 update globally. The new OTA bears the software designation "MIUI 188.8.131.52 RFNMIXM", denoting that it's an Android R build for the global model of the Mi Note 10 Lite. The update weighs in at 2.3 GB. It's not a MIUI 12.5 build as some would expect, though. At the moment, this OTA is in the beta stable stage, which means it's seeding to random users pending a full rollout.
The Redmi Note 8 is also getting a new update. This update is the January security patch, which is rather impressive seeing as we're just midway through the month. The update bears the build number "MIUI V184.108.40.206.QCOMIXM", showing that it's a MIUI 12 update for the global model of the device. It is, of course, based on Android 10.
