Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer recently released the Android 8.0 Beta version for its flagship device Mi6. The global users who are currently running the android version 7.12.14 are soon to receive an OTA upgrade Android 8.0 for Mi 6. The global beta version Android 8.1.1 would be available for Mi 6 soon. For those who are using Global Stable ROM will have to switch to another ROM in order to get the latest version of operating system.
The new update which is rolling out might have some bugs as per some reports and it is being said that the Android 8.0 Oreo, which is being rolled out for Mi 6 devices might not be as stable as the Nougat on the Mi 6 and other flagship devices of Xiaomi. However it is still not clear by when the company will launch a stable version of Android 8.0 for Mi 6 and other flagship devices.
As mentioned above in order to use the upgraded beta version Android 8.0 on Mi6 a user needs a stable ROM. The users will have to upgrade the Global stable ROM to MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM which is based on Android Nougat v7.12.14 to install the Android Oreo beta. Once updated to v.7.12.14 the user will receive an OTA which automatically updates the device.
It is highly recommended that a user should back up all important data prior updating their devices. This will help in preventing data loss. The beta version of Android Oreo 8.0 might have some bugs making the device unstable for daily use. This might be a negative impact for the customers who are willing to upgrade to Android 8.o Beta version.
The download links for the Android upgrade is available on Xiaomi's own website along with the user guides. Xiaomi is reported to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Mi Mix 2 as well in the near future, though no Beta version is yet available for the Mi Mix 2. It is also being reported that Xiaomi might not roll out the stable version of Android Oreo 8.0 any time soon, however a stable version would be much appreciated by the masses.
