Original story (published on March 13) follows:
Launched back in September 2019, Android 10 has been and continues to slowly trickle down to more and more devices, now Redmi Note 8 Pro, thanks to their respective phone-makers.
We have seen many companies, from the likes of Samsung, OnePlus, Nokia and even Xiaomi, among many more, being able to roll out their skinned versions of Android to many of their devices.
We have seen the active development of Android 10-based MIUI 11 for the Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 8. Previously, we saw the roll-out of the Stable Beta for Redmi Note 8 Pro in China. This was quickly followed by the European stable beta and the European stable; you can read more on this here.
Keeping with the same pace of development, Xiaomi is today releasing the official Stable Beta for the Global variant of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro.
This update, despite still being a Stable Beta for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, bears a different software version number. Unlike some European variants that received the beta stable with build V126.96.36.199.QGGEUXM, this build’s version number is V188.8.131.52.QGGMIXM.
Among the fixes that this update brings to the Redmi Note 8 Pro in Android 10, the main one has to be the addition of Netflix HD support. It also brings the February security patch but the Netflix fix is the most anticipated one.
Earlier reports also indicated that indeed, Netflix HD was working fine on the Redmi Note 8 Pro after the update.
This is a stable beta rollout. As such, it is limited to just a handful of Global Redmi Note 8 Pro users, randomly via OTA before the wider rollout begins. If history is anything to go by, this shouldn’t be too long.
