Google’s Android 10 is already available for a plethora of Xiaomi phones. However, entry-level smartphones do not expect to get such updates early. According to recent report, the Redmi 8A, Xiaomi’s Q4 2019 entry-level device is now getting the Android 10 update. This smartphone is receiving the stable version of MIUI 11 based on the Android 10. The version number is V18.104.22.168QCPCNXM, and the download package size is 1.8GB.
As usual, users should ensure that they back up their data before attempting the download. Also, this update will not arrive on all units at the same time. Thus, if you have not gotten this update, just exercise some patience. Alternatively, you can go to settings to check for available updates manually.
In October last year, Xiaomi released the Redmi 8/8A mobile phone. Redmi 8A arrives with a 6.22-inch waterdrop screen. It also uses Corning’s fifth-generation gorilla protective glass. Under the hood, this smartphone boasts of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor. In the camera department, it uses a single 12MP rear camera as well as an 8MP front camera. This smartphone also uses an in-built 5000 mAh battery which supports 18W fast charging. This is probably the most attractive part of this device. If you want more power, then choose the Redmi 8A.
