  • Xiaomi has revealed a list of phones that will receive updates in Q4 2018.
  • These system updates will be beta releases at the very least.
  • The company is delivering a mix of Android Oreo and Android Pie updates.

It’s been several months since Android Pie first launched, so we’re happy to see Xiaomi reveal a list of phones that will receive the update in some capacity in Q4 2018.

The company used its Chinese-language forum (h/t: GSMArena and MyDrivers) to publish a table of devices that have either received Android Oreo and Pie, or shall receive a beta update at the very least during Q4 2018. Naturally, we’re more interested in devices set to receive the updates…

The table shows that the Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 5 Plus, and Mi 5X are all set to receive a bump to Oreo. It’s disappointing that these phones aren’t being upgraded to Pie, but hopefully the brand skips Pie when Android Q is launched…

Meanwhile, devices set to receive a Pie-based update this quarter are the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition (known as the Pro model outside China), Mi 8 SE, and the Mi Max 3.

Xiaomi’s table also notes that the Mi 5S Plus’s Oreo update was suspended due to an unspecified issue. Don’t see your phone on the list though? Well, the forum post cautions that old phones and devices that have already received two updates are unlikely to receive another update.
