Hello MIUIers, hope you are doing well. As you know Google already released Android 8.0 Oreo edition for our mobiles. So today we talk about Oreo updates in Xiaomi mobiles. We all know how Xiaomi updates works. As of now, Google introduced Android 8.0 Oreo and here we still suffering to get Android 7.0 Nougat update in over Xiaomi mobiles. So here we discuss we discuss which Xiaomi devices possibly get Android 8.0 Oreo update. If they get an update then when Xiaomi MIUI Global users receive Android 8.0 Oreo updates in their MIUI editions. If think MIUI version increase because of Oreo then this is not necessary. There is no need to change MIUI version to release Oreo updates in Xiaomi mobiles. Hope previously you listen to MIUI 9 Marshmallow based and also MIUI 9 based on Lolipop. So May be you get MIUI 10 based on Android 8.0 Oreo or else you can simply get updates in MIUI 9 which is based on Oreo.
If you are thinking to get soon Oreo updates in your Xiaomi devices then please forget it. There is no chance to get MIUI which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo in near future. Because you know MIUI is a custom screen so they paste too much code over on stock Android. Every time when Google launches new Android versions MIUI team need to analyze these updates and make changes to it which are supported by MIUI. MIUI team has very long testing cycle to provide bug-free OS.
