This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (published on March 19) follows:
A trio of lower mid-range phones from Xiaomi has just gone for Android 10 beta testing. Xiaomi has been doing this for quite some time now, where, before rolling out any major OS update to the masses, it is first sent out to a few select users, or the beta testing team.
These early users then send out feedbacks to the Xiaomi team to bring improvements in the ROM. And now, as per a recent tweet, the Redmi 8, Redmi 8A and Redmi Note 8, Android 10 is under testing and will be rolled out to the users once it is ready to roll.
This tweet comes from the Twitter handle of Xiaomi Firmware Updater, which is an open-source community that provides downloadable firmware package files for all Xiaomi phones. You can check out the tweet below:
Xiaomi has started Android 10 testing for Redmi Note 8, Redmi 8 and 8A.
Users of the Redmi 8, Redmi 8A and Redmi Note 8 were eagerly waiting for the Android 10 update on their handsets and knowing that Xiaomi has started testing Android 10 for their devices, might give them a breather.
However, users should also keep this thing in mind that, major updates are first rolled out to the Chinese variants of the Xiaomi phones before it is pushed for the global variants.
So, even though the Android 10 update has gone under testing for the Redmi 8, 8A and Note 8, global users might have to wait a bit more to get their hands on the update.
Moreover, this beta testing is just the early phase of the rollout. The update will be rolled out to the public, only, when it is confirmed that the OS does not contain any major bugs.
