The most significant change in the update is pushing the phone from Android 8.0 to Android 8.1. And now, Xiaomi Mi A1 is receiving the update, however it should have got it first as it is an Android One device.

As reported by Mashable, the Android Oreo 8.1 version is now available after several weeks of beta testing.


If you're sick and exhausted of dealing with Android problems on your Galaxy S8 (or another device), and you've got a Galaxy S8 lying around, think about trying the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta. However, being a maintenance release, the Android 8.1 Oreo doesn't come along with that many new features, but it certainly brings along some tweaks and enhancements to notification alerts and autofill framework among others.

The Android 8.1 Oreo OTA has begun rolling out to Nexus 6P, and, we have received it here in India on our unit. Once the volunteers test the beta update and the bugs or other issues are resolved, the stable Android Oreo update for the Mi A1 will be rolled out to all the users owning the device. The system will itself check for the new update for Android 8.1 update. If you are using the device, you can navigate to the device's Settings → About Phone and check for the system update manually from there. The network speed labels will be enabled by default and users must go to Settings Network & Internet Wi-Fi Wi-Fi Preferences Advanced Network rating provider and select None. It didn't confirm a specific release window or a specific list of devices getting the upgrade. From the next page, you need to select the Check for update option. That update caused incompatibility between the System Update code and the Checkin code.
