[Updated] Redmi Note 8 Android 10 update to release in July & Redmi Note 8 Pro this month, says Xiaomi executive

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on May 4) follows:

The Redmi Note 8 Android 10 update reportedly started beta-testing back in March 2020. This was a good sign for device owners looking forward to the new OS, but at the time, little was aired regarding the availability of the OTA update.

Towards the end of March, reports surfaced that the Redmi Note 8 Android 10 update can be expected to arrive as part of the MIUI 12 beta release.

Indeed, when Xiaomi announced MIUI 12 late last month, it was also confirmed that it is the update to MIUI 12 that will bring Android 10 to the Note 8. While no date was mentioned at the time, this is no longer the case.

The screenshot above has a pair of important information from Alvin Tse, the GM at Xiaomi Indonesia. First is that the Redmi Note 8 Android 10 update can be expected to arrive somewhere in July 2020. If anything, this should coincide with the expected global release of MIUI 12.

Another thing that comes to light is the Redmi Note 8 Pro Android 10 update status. For the uninitiated, the update was pushed to multiple units/regions back in March, but it seems the rollout was halted at some point for unknown reasons.

Going by what Alvin Tse says, those who didn’t receive the new OS can expect it in the course of this month, but no specific date has been given. With the month still fresh, there should be some anxious waiting to do.
