Redmi Note 8 News: Android 11 expectation for Redmi Note 8 continues. A new update has brought those hopes back to life. Let’s take a look at the details…
It’s been months since Xiaomi announced that it would upgrade the Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro to Android 11. Since then, closed beta groups have received the update for both devices, while only the Chinese version of the Note 8 has met the new Android version. On the Note 8 Pro front, there is a complicated situation. Even the Chinese version of the phone has not yet been stable in the closed beta process. The latest developments on the Note 8 front are promising.
Xiaomi released Android 11 in China for the Note 8 on February 20, 2021. It usually takes two weeks for the update to reach global models after its rollout in China, but that didn’t happen. Many bugs have been identified that need to be fixed within the scope of the update before the phone is released to the global version.
Xiaomi has released a new MIUI 12 update based on Android 11 for the Note 8 months later. It is estimated that all previously detected problems have been fixed with the stable update, which is 267 MB in size. So, how will it be understood that the errors have been fixed? If the update is released for the global version of Note 8 in the coming days, it means the problems have been resolved. If the update starts in our country, we will inform you about the relevant developments.
Xiaomi, on the other hand, announced the 2021 version of the Note 8 the other day. The phone, whose design and technical features are largely the same, is now powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 processor. The surprise development here is that the phone comes out of the box with the Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 version.
