Deal of the Day - Xiaomi Mi A1 At ₹12999

Xiaomi Mi A1 to get Android Oreo soon, here's how to register for beta test

The Mi A1 is powered by stock Android, meaning it avoids one of the arguably least desirable aspects of regular Xiaomi phones (MIUI) and gets one of the most desirable of others (stock Android). The company has taken to its official forum via GSMArena asking users of the device to register themselves for the beta testing program before December 11 at 11:59 PM Beijing time.

It remains to be known when the Mi A1 will receive the Android Oreo update but there are claims that the update might be rolled out before the end of this year. Now, Xiaomi has announced on their forum that they need beta testers for the Oreo update. The company will inform you on MIUI global forum if you are selected or not. You can join the beta program regardless of your region, and the communication language is English. Once downloaded, go to the "Recruitment" section on the app's homepage. Just like any other beta program, the Android Oreo beta test for the Mi A1 is expected to be somewhat unstable so be aware of what you're getting into if you're adamant to try out new OS features as quickly as possible. A handy little reminder that this ROM isn't stable is included at the end.

When we reviewed the Xiaomi Mi A1 in November, we said it came very close to being the flawless midrange phone. The Android One software only heightens the performance since there is no bloatware to speak of, and updates will come in steadily.
