Android Oreo 8.0 beta for Xiaomi Mi A1 starts rolling out !!

Here's a very interesting news for all the Xiaomi Mi A1 users !!
As this device is a part of the Android One program, it was announced with promised updates of Android Oreo and Android P. Undoubtedly Mi A1 is the first Flagship handset that is merged with tech- giant Google.

Keeping their promises, Android Oreo (Beta) has already started rolling out for the Mi A1 in small number of units for testing !  Android Oreo has been in Beta phase for a while and the final release is expected by any point of time by the end of the year. The new update to Oreo will come along with January 2018 security patch.


  • The Oreo - beta enables fast charging on this device which is a huge improvement for any device.
  • The device took approximately 2 hrs to complete 100%  before update and after the Oreo upgrade the device is capable of getting completely charged within 90 mins by using QC 3.0 Certified quick charger by Qualcomm.
  • This update also brings additional GUI based improvements like picture-in-picture video, notification channels , auto-fill app support and more optimized way of handling background apps.  
You can download the ROM From XDA Forum here and flash it manually at your own risk if you are confident.

Mi A1 is undoubtedly the best budget Smartphone known for its photography and excellent software.

This device is available on online platforms like Flipkart as well as Mi store and few offline stores like Vijay sales and Croma.

The update is expected by the end of the year but it may take couple of weeks more for getting the stable version to role out !
