Xiaomi Mi A2 gets new update but it doesn’t bring Android Pie

by Habeeb Onawole 0

The Mi A2 is Xiaomi‘s second attempt at an Android One phone. It was announced back in July along with a less powerful version called the Mi A2 Lite. A new update has begun rolling out to the Mi A2 but it isn’t the one owners have been expecting.

The new update brings November’s security patch and weighs in at about 90MB. There are no additional fixes or new features which must be disappointing for owners.

What is more disappointing is that the update doesn’t bring Android Pie to the phone. Other Android One phones (read Nokia phones) have begun receiving the Android Pie update but all of Xiaomi’s three Android One phones including the Mi A1 are still running Android Oreo.

We still have less than two months before the end of the year, so there is a chance the update may arrive before the year runs out. However, we won’t be surprised if it is pushed to early next year.
