Last month, we reported about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 possibly being queued for an Android 10 MIUI 12 update. With MIUI 12 officially announced in China earlier this week, speculation is once again rife about the availability of Android 10 for the Snapdragon 665-powered budget handset.

In a response to a query posted on the Mi Community forums as to whether Android 10 followed by MIUI 12 would be available for the Redmi Note 8, a Xiaomi moderator replied, 

No, for china rom its under internal testing along with Android 10 so update will include Android 10+MIUI 12. Its subject to change [sic]."

The above statement implies that the Chinese Android 10-MIUI 12 ROM for the Redmi Note 8 is already in testing and that the global ROM should be available soon. 

The statement from the moderator seems assuring. However, we should caution that since the update is still in testing, it may still get paused if any show-stopping bugs are found in the process.

Recently, the Redmi Note 8 Pro received the Android 10 update globally, but it removed HDR support for Netflix and HD playback ability on Amazon Prime. The Redmi Note 8 supports Widevine L1 DRM but for some reason does not playback Netflix in HD. Here's hoping this update irons out such bugs.

My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
