The Redmi Note 8 was one of the best budget smartphones of its time. The device debuted with MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. It was later updated to MIUI 11 and MIUI 12. The handset even got Android 10. Now, as promised, the company has started rolling out the Android 11 update for this phone.
In December 2020, Xiaomi confirmed the Android 11 update for some of its 2019 smartphones. For those unaware, the firm is known for delivering only a single Android update for budget devices. But to everyone’s surprise, the popular Redmi Note 8 series was also included in this new list.
Hence, the vanilla Redmi Note 8 is now receiving the Android 11 update in China with build number V188.8.131.52.RCOCNXM. The update is currently in the ‘Stable Beta’ phase and therefore, it is only available for select users in the country.
Anyway, it should be made available for all the users in the coming days. Similarly, the international versions of this phone running regional MIUI build, namely Global, India, Indonesia, and EEA should also get it soon.
Further, we can also expect Xiaomi to seed the Android 11 update for the Redmi Note 8T, which is basically the same handset but with NFC. This device runs three different regional MIUI builds like Global, EEA, and Russia.
