Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Android 10 update (Global stable) officially rolling out with January security patch and bugfixes (Download link inside)
While most of the world continues to grapple with the effects of the COVID-19 Epidemic, no country has been hit as hard as China. Despite that, many Chinese companies continue to strive to roll out updates to their devices.
One such company is Xiaomi. We recently saw the company rolling out Android 10 to the Global variant of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, albeit in stable Beta, and now, the same love is being extended to the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro.
As of now, the Chinese variant of the Mi 8 Pro already runs on Android 10. The device got updated to the new version of Android way back in January. You can read more about that here.
Then in February, users in some European regions claimed to have received the update along with the December patch. While not clear at the time, in hindsight, that might have been a Stable Beta rollout. More on these here.
Little else followed those statements as not many people received the update, classic signs of a Stable beta rollout which only goes out to a limited number of eligible users.
This time, we got an official announcement for the Android 10 Global Stable update on Mi 8 Pro device. The statement confirms that this update comes with the January security patch. The build number has also progressed from beta stable updates and this version number is 188.8.131.52.QECMIXM
The following is the update’s Changelog;
Stable MIUI based on Android 10
Updated Android Security Patch to January 2020. Increased system security.
Status bar, Notification shade
Fix : Couldnt open notification settings in the Notification shade in Second space
Fix : Couldn’t open the Notification shade in some cases
Fix : Images overlapped in scrolling screenshots
As this is an OTA update, it might take a while before it is immediately available for your supported device. However, if you are not patient, you can install it manually on your Mi 8 Pro.
