Three Xiaomi devices including the Mi 5, Mi Mix 2 & Mi Note 2 will be getting an Android Oreo update soon. Xiaomi recently recruited beta testers to test out Android O for these devices in China but now, they have opened up the opportunity to Global users as well.
In a post in the MIUI forum a Moderator provided details on how users can apply for the Beta Testing Campaign but, if you want to apply you must be quick as the entries will close today (11th April on 23.59PM, Beijing Time). If you want to apply, you can find the instructions here.
All these three devices belong to an older generation (the Snapdragon 820 era) so, it’s nice to see that Xiaomi is at least giving Android Upgrades to the previous generation flagships. However, we’ll appreciate if they also update their budget devices as those are the ones they sell the most units of. Yes, they do update the MIUI version frequently but, at least one Android Version upgrade will be appreciated for budget devices.
