Xiaomi has finally revealed a list of smartphones which are going to receive Android Pie in the upcoming Q4 of 2018. The smartphone maker is quite popular for its budget offerings, especially in India. This report might come as a welcoming news to many of the Xiaomi users and fans. The brand updated a list of phones on its Chinese forum. A table of Xiaomi phones has been made with their upcoming Android updates written next to them. Some of these phones have already received the Android Pie or Android Oreo updates.
The image shows Redmi 5A, Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus and Mi 5X in line to get Android Oreo update soon. While this may dishearten some people, you would do well to remember that the company might even skip the Android 9.0 Pie update for these and jump straight to Android Q. However this isn’t final in any way and only time would tell what actually happens.
On the other hand, we have quite a few Xiaomi phones which will receive Android 9.0 Pie update in the Q4, 2018. They are – Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro (in-display fingerprint), Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and the Xiaomi Mi Max 3. Additionally, the forum has specifically mentioned that the phones which received two updates will not receive any other updates in the future. This is not all, as the table also notes something interesting. It clearly mentions that the Android Oreo update the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus has been postponed due to some bugs. But we do see the phone on the list so we could expect it to be updated to Android 8.1 Oreo, hopefully.
