[Live in Russia] Xiaomi Mi 8 Android 10 update begins rolling out widely (Download link inside)

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on February 13, 2020) follows:

It’s natural for smartphone makers to distribute their software update rollouts across stages/phases. Usually, the software is pushed to a handful of units first and later, after extensive monitoring of the initial batch for any issues, the wider rollout follows.

This is what’s happening with the Mi 8 Android 10 update, which is currently rolling out widely to more units across the globe. This comes a day after more Mi 8 Pro users also started receiving their update to Android 10.

Following its release last month, the update has been under close monitoring by Xiaomi developers looking to establish any major issues before making it widely available.

Seemingly, no major issues were found in the firmware and as of this writing, Xiaomi has decided that every other Mi 8 owner across the globe should also get a taste of Android 10. And indeed, the OS is now rolling out over the air.

Below is a summary of the changelog:

Status bar, Notification shade
– Fix: Couldn’t open notification settings in the Notification shade in Second space
– Fix: Couldn’t open the Notification shade in some cases
Other
– Fix: Images overlapped in scrolling screenshots

FYI, the very first Android 10 OTA the Mi 8 picked up in early January as MIUI 11.0.1.0.QEAMIXM was canceled after the company determined that it wasn’t fit for use as a daily driver.

A patched-up MIUI 11.0.3.0.QEAMIXM was then released a couple of weeks later and so far, it seems this version is perfect hence the wider availability of the same firmware.
