In recent times, Xiaomi has been working on its latest MIUI 9. The company just released the global stable ROM to Mi MIX 2 and many other devices have also gotten this stable version. Now that the global rollout of MIUI 9 has commenced, Xiaomi is now recruiting beta testers for Android 8.0 for its flagship device – the Mi 6. This recruitment may take a few weeks and the closed beta program will start afterward. Users who will sign up for this program will use the closed beta version for a specified time before it is opened to more units. Subsequently, a developer version will be released as a public beta.
It is most probable that the public beta will be available by January 2018 if all goes according to plan and a final stable update will arrive much later, most likely after the Mi 7 and other new devices have been released. The Oreo comes with a series of new features which includes picture-in-picture mode, Bluetooth battery level indicator, Autofill, Notification dots, and instant apps. Xiaomi is using the same method it adopted when it was about to roll out Android Nougat.
