The wait was long and users had no choice but to wait, but now Android 11 is coming to the Redmi Note 8 smartphone. The same update is also coming to the Redmi Note 8T, the variant with NFC connection.
This is one of the few Xiaomi phones launched in 2019 to receive the latest version of Google’s operating system, Android 11 through MIUI. The update is already in distribution, arriving gradually and in stages to the respective users.
Android 11 is on its way to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8
The Xiaomi phone was launched in September 2019 as an input device, or mid-range depending on the markets. It was stated as a price / quality option and was well received in several countries, including UK, where it arrived with Android 9.0 (Pie).
In the meantime, it would receive Android 10 with the MIUI 12 interface and, not surprisingly, it is now receiving a stable Chinese version, already based on Android 11. More specifically, the firmware with build number V188.8.131.52.RCOCNXM.
Now we have to wait for MIUI.EU developers to do their job preparing a global version of this very MIUI update. Note that this is not MIUI 12.5, but an incremental update to MIUI 12.
It is the latest version of MIUI 12 for this Xiaomi smartphone
Nevertheless, it will be the second major update of the operating system for a cheap smartphone, something that remains rare in the smartphone market. On the other hand, Xiaomi is one of the manufacturers with the best update history through its MIUI.
So we have a MIUI 12 based on Android 11 for Redmi Note 8, with multi-language support, already prepared for global markets. The news was detected by the XDA Developers portal, also reporting the arrival of news to the Mi 10T Lite and Xiaomi Mi Note 10, with distribution already underway.
Advanced users who want to install the “stable beta” version on their Redmi Note 8 can also do so. If you have the bootloader unlocked, have to download the firmware and install it using a recovery like TWRP.
For a correct installation you also need your Mi Account, or Xiaomi account to do the sideload. On the other hand, it is now a matter of time before Xaomi starts to distribute this stable update.
For the average user, we recommend waiting a few more days or weeks for the version distributed via OTA (over-the-air).
