The device launched with Android 7.1 Nougat on board but later received an update to Android 8.0 Oreo. After months of waiting, it seems that Xiaomi Mi A1 is now rolling out the official Android 8.1 Oreo update for the device.
We’ve been anticipating the Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Xiaomi Mi A1 for some time. A beta update leaked for the device at the end of April but apart from beta leaks hinting at an imminent launch, we haven’t heard any official confirmation that the update would be rolling out today. It’s great that Xiaomi is still supporting their one-and-only Android One device even while the company marches full steam ahead with their MIUI 10 launches.
Android 8.1 Oreo doesn’t offer that many notable feature upgrades over 8.0 Oreo, though there are a few improvements such as the ability to view the battery level of connected Bluetooth devices and notification rate limiting to prevent abuse by apps.
