Keep in mind that the 4GB variant of Redmi 8A was surprisingly not launched in India. Meaning that the 4 GB + 64 GB Chinese variant of the Redmi 8A spotted on the Geekbench listing will soon get the Android 10 update.

Moreover, the update might bring the MIUI 11 update with a new security patchset or some other system enhancements. Note that, we cannot confirm anything until we have some official or concrete information in this regard.
