[100% release, including India] Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 10-based May update (v18.104.22.168) rolling out with fix for Camera Pro mode shutter speed bug
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from May 11) follows:
Android 10’s advent on the Xiaomi Mi A3 devices has been quite a topsy-turvy episode so far. Released for the first time back in February, the OEM couldn’t manage to deliver a bug-free stable update and their half-baked releases caused them to push and pull the update multiple times.
Finally, a couple of months from when they actually started, Xiaomi managed to push the least buggy Android 10 update (V22.214.171.124.QFQMIXM) to Mi A3 devices. However, this time to avoid another bash from users, they followed an approach of phased rollout (push to limited % at a time) to ensure that no unfinished business was delivered.
After a successful global release, Mi A3 devices in the European region also got to experience the Android 10 (V126.96.36.199 QFQEUXM) lately. We better put it bluntly that even the latest release wasn’t completely bug-free. Right after the release, we highlighted that Camera Pro Mode shutter speed was reduced to 1/4s.
What’s good is that the issue was brought to the notice of the concerned team well in time. And going by the latest reports it has been addressed in the latest Android 10-based May security patch that is hitting the devices with version V188.8.131.52.QFQMIXM.
While earlier it was stuck at 1/4s (left image), now there’s no such issue (right image).
The information regarding the May OTA update came in the form of an official announcement post at the community, and it says the update right now is being pushed to 10% of the devices, which excluded India. Users have already started receiving the 35MB OTA package.
Considering this monthly update is also being pushed to a limited percentage of devices, we’ll keep a continuous track of the increasing percentage as well as update you about it. So keep patience. For those who have already received the update, feel free to drop a comment and share your experience.
