[Android 10 released] Redmi Note 8 Pro Android 10 update rollout paused, chances of re-release with MIUI 12?

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

Original story (published on May 4) follows:

In late February 2020, the Redmi Note 8 Pro Android 10 update started rolling out in select markets. The OS first hit units in Russia and the rest of Europe, tagging along February 2020 security patches.

The update, which was only pushed to a few Note 8 Pro units for “beta stable” testing purposes, arrived as MIUI 11.0.2.0.

Two or so weeks later, the rollout spread its coverage to the global, Indian, and Indonesian variants of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Like Europe, the Indian variant also got Android 10 as MIUI 11.0.2.0.

The global and Indonesian models, on the other hand, received the new OS as MIUI V11.0.1.0. Of course, the changes included were the same throughout, but for some reason, not everyone in the said regions has received Android 10 to date.

While there is room to manually install Android 10 OS on any of the Redmi Note 8 Pro variants (downloadable ROMs are available), Xiaomi now says the official OTA update may take some time to hit the remaining units. This is because the rollout has been halted and so far, there is no ETA.

Android 10 for Redmi Note 8 Pro(MI,EU,IN) was released partially and rollout is paused now. We dont have ETA for full-rollout. May be with MIUI 12 who knows. Till then stay tuned on mi global community for further info.

This delay could mean the rollout may resume at a time when MIUI 12 hits the global markets, probably somewhere in July. But of course, this is just a hunch and nothing official.

Amid all these, one thing that comes to mind is that there is definitely something huge preventing Xiaomi from pushing on with the Note 8 Pro update to Android 10 OS. But if none of that matters to you, the links to download the updated Android 10 ROMs for this device are right below.
