Xiaomi Mi A1 is getting stable Android 8.0 Oreo update

Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi recently launched the Oreo beta program for their Mi A1, giving testers a taste of what the final build will be like. Now in keeping up with its promising of rolling out the stable Android Oreo update to users before the year ends, Xiaomi is now rolling out stable Android Oreo update for users starting from today.

The update is a 1107.4MB file bearing OTA Android Oreo 8.0 and December Android security update with the v7.12.29 build. Updating to this latest v7.12.29 build (Android Oreo) would require users to be running the December update with version number 7.12.19.

Please do note that this update is progressively rolling out to all users and that means it might take a couple of days before it gets to your device, so it should pop up in the notification menu as soon as it becomes available, but you may also wish to check out the update manually via your phone Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Check for update.. Do note that your device should be plugged in or at least 50 % charged to install the OTA update.

Aside from the fast charging which was earlier confirmed in the beta update, the latest update brings in the favorite Android Oreo features including Background limits, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, AAudio API for Pro Audio, WebView enhancements and much more.
