Phone Specifications

Recently a report surfaced which suggests that the devices: Redmi Note 8/8T and Redmi Note 8 Pro are going to be updated to Android 11 and are being tested internally. This is a big step and in the positive direction because of the aforementioned fact that “MediaTek powered devices don’t get regular updates or updates at all”. It has changed Xiaomi’s update roadmap because for the longest time it was believed that they wont update their year-old budget devices, especially with an Android version upgrade of all things. It is also worth mentioning that on the open-source front, there is not a lot of custom rom development for the devices in question, so it is a praiseworthy thing Xiaomi is doing.

A little is known at the moment about what changes these updates might bring to the table but you can expect performance improvements and optimizations that we have seen in the already updated Redmi Note 9 Pro and maybe more down the road.
