The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite and the Mi Max 3 global variants are finally receiving the stable Android 10-based MIUI 11 update after having had an initial rollout in China. Both updates weigh-in around 1.8 GB and come with the February security patch. The updates, though stable, are still being seeded only to a few users and will roll out to others if all goes well.

Several Xiaomi phones are starting to receive Android 10, and the latest to join the bandwagon are the Mi 8 Lite and the Mi Max 3. The Mi 8 series started receiving the update last month with the Chinese variants of the Mi 8 Lite and the Mi Max 3 receiving the stable MIUI 11 version last week. Now, the global version of the Android 10 update is being seeded to owners of these handsets. 

The global variant of the Mi 8 Lite is receiving the MIUI 11.0.1.0.QDTMIXM OTA update. This brings stable Android 10 along with security patches updated up to February 2020. While you should be receiving the update within the next few days, you can also flash it manually if you do not wish to wait. The offline installation package for the Mi 8 Lite weighs around 1.8 GB and can be downloaded from this link

Similarly, the Mi Max 3's Android 10 update is arriving in the form of MIUI 11.0.1.0.QEDMIXM and again, this comes bundled with the February security patches built-in. This update too is about 1.8 GB and if you don't wish to wait, can download it from here

While these are stable ROMs, Xiaomi is only rolling them out to a limited set of users so they are still marked as Global Beta Stable. Xiaomi may stop or reschedule the release if they appear to pose any issues. However, the chances for such issues are slim and we do expect everyone to be up to date with stable MIUI 11 in the coming weeks.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
