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.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro already received Android 10 update

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.
