Xiaomi seeks beta testers for Mi A1 Android Oreo update

Postado Dezembro 06, 2017

Unlike the Mi 6 Android Oreo beta program announced a few days ago as a China-exclusive affair, the Mi A1 beta test is open to users from all parts of the world, with applicants only being required to speak English and use QQ to communicate with the company.

Xiaomi started receiving applications for beta testing the Android Oreo on the Mi A1.

When we reviewed the Xiaomi Mi A1 in November, we said it came very close to being the flawless midrange phone.

Xiaomi's usage of stock Android also suggested that the handset would see fast updates, even though the manufacturer typically lags behind other OEMs when it comes to major Android version rollouts.

You also need to have the MIUI Global Forum app installed on the device.

As far as requirements is concerned, anyone with Mi A1 from any region can apply for beta tester. The app is available for download from the Play Store and we've included the link below.

The application states that all Mi A1 users are eligible to apply and only the device's IMEI number is to be provided for the application. Later, the company will take to its MIUI global forum to let the users know if they are selected or not. Android 8.0 Oreo introduces better battery management, Notification Dots, Picture-in-Picture mode, and numerous other features meant to improve the end-user experience of compatible devices. Here, you will need to input your phones IMEI number. The deadline for application is 11:59 PM (Beijing Time), on December 11, 2017.
