Mi A2/Lite

[Q&A] Xiaomi Mi A2 gets new update but it doesn’t bring Android Pie

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.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 has a 5.99-inch FHD+ screen, a Snapdragon 660 processor, up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has 12MP+20MP dual rear cameras and a 20MP front-facing camera. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3000mAh battery but no audio jack.

Xiaomi gives priority to their own custom ROM which is MIUI.

Android One comes second..

I think Nokia phones even those non-Android One pretty much runs stock Android.

The funny thing is we paid extra money for this android one program to get faster updates and 2 major updates. Xiaomi even made thread called "do you want to pay extra money for android updates?" before mi a1 release
