No, Redmi Note 8 owners, you aren't forgotten. Xiaomi has now begun the Android 11 rollout for the Redmi Note 8. The Android 11 OTA is now being sent out to the European model of the then-popular mid-range phone. It weighs in at over 2 GB but owners will have to wait some more for MIUI 12.5.

Xiaomi continues to send out both the Android 11 and MIUI 12.5 update to its lineup. While most of the focus has been on the MIUI 12.5, the company has yet to roll out Android 11 to some of its older mid-range devices, including the Redmi Note 8. Until now, at least. Rejoice, Redmi Note 8 owners, Android 11 is finally here for you. 

The Android 11 update is now arriving for the Redmi Note 8. It's still at the early stages of rollout but will get to the full, public rollout stage over the next couple of weeks. The update bears the build designation "V12.0.2.0.RCOEUXM", denoting that it's an early Android 11-based MIUI 12 build, and is one for the European model of the Redmi Note 8. The update weighs in at 2.2 GB, no surprise considering it's an entire OS upgrade. 

This update, as mentioned, is a MIUI 12 build. Owners of the Redmi Note 8 will have to wait a while longer for MIUI 12.5. In any case, the Android 11 rollout looks to be a lot better than the circus that was the Android 10 rollout last year.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
