The Xiaomi Mi 6 is issued with its official update to Android Pie
Xiaomi has released its fully stable version of Android Pie for the Mi 6 smartphone. This device was the OEM's flagship in 2017, and yet has had access to a beta of the same up-to-date OS for the last 3 months. This community-aided development has led to the roll-out of MIUI 10.4.1.0.
This iteration of MIUI - Xiaomi's custom skin for Android - is available on the company's new resource on which new updates for all devices worldwide are posted. v10.4.1.0 is 1.6GB in size, and can be installed via recovery, fastboot or via the About Phone>System update menu in the phone's Settings.
MIUI 10.4.1.0 is said not to differ hugely from the preceding software version (based on Android 8.1). On the other hand, it does contain a major OS upgrade. In addition, judging by other Xiaomi phones with similar updates, the Mi 6 is now more likely to be able to use features such as button-free UI navigation and improved app-opening times.
