Gizchina News of the week

Being the first Global Beta it is likely that there are some bugs, which will still be resolved in the coming weeks. You can download the ROM and install it on your Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, remembering to make a preventive backup to not lose your data, or via TWRP if you have unlocked the bootloader.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite, one of the most appreciated mid-range phones of this second part of 2018, is instead receiving the MIUI 10 China Developer 8.12.13 ROM, also based on Android 9 Pie. If you have purchased the Chinese version of this smartphone you can download the new ROM, but if you have the global version do not install it, to avoid damaging the smartphone.
