Redmi 8A Receives Android 10 Stable Update But Without MIUI 12

The Xiaomi Redmi 8A Android 10 update is getting released with MIUI 11 in India. The same has happened in China one month ago.

The phone was introduced with Android 9-powered MIUI 11, and it was supposed to receive an Android 10 update soon after launch.

Xiaomi promised that the update would come soon, but that never happened.

The Report

PiunikaWeb reported that the Redmi 8A Android 10 update was released in India with MIUI 11.

The same update was released one month before China in a similar manner, and the same will happen for global and European units.

The stable Android 10 update for the 8A bears the number 11.0.1.0.QCPINXM in India.

The OTA release requires about 1.6GB, and not everybody will probably receive the update in a single wave.

The great thing about the update is that it brings the August 2020 security patch to thousands of users.
