The Mi 5s Plus was released back in 2016 as one of Xiaomi’s second slate of flagships for the year. It was also the first phone in the Mi-series to have dual rear cameras. A few months ago, Xiaomi began rolling out Android Oreo to the Chinese variant of the phone. The update should hit the global version too but right now, Xiaomi is rolling out MIUI 10 first.
The MIUI 10 global stable update is said to be about 1.4GB in size and brings a completely new look, Xiaomi’s natural sound system, portrait mode for the front camera, and a couple of revamped apps.
The Mi 5s Plus has a 5.7-inch FHD screen, a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. Its dual rear cameras are a 13MP f/2.0 RGB sensor and a 13MP f/2.0 monochrome sensor while a 4MP sensor sits in front for selfies. The rest of its specs include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm audio jack, a Type-C port, and a 3,800mAh battery.
The update can be downloaded manually here if you don’t want to wait for the OTA. However, we will advise you check for reviews from those who have already installed it so as to know if there any issues. A future global stable update should bring Android Oreo to the phone.
