Thanks for sharing your highly appreciated question with the MiCommunity, mate. Mi 8 is definitely a good good device for the price, however: Lately released phones shall receive more future updates than a phone released with Android 9, right? With Android 11 on our doorsteps, buying a phone which was released with Android 8.1, it is on its last update stage, hence, doesn't provide many (if any) future updates. Furthermore, MIUI12 is its last MIUI update it will get... Just my 2 cents, mate.

As klappasaki said above, Mi 8 doesn't have much future in terms of software updates. It would probably get further MIUI updates, but you cannot expect any major Android updates. If you are someone who doesn't change your device for 2-3 years, I would suggest you to check out the latest 2020 devices. POCO X3 is a good all rounder for a very good price (if it's available in your region).

Cheers! :-)

Thanks for sharing your highly appreciated feedback, bhai 🙏. The Mi 8 is definitely a good device. However, its 128/6 GB Variant cost around 500.- U$ on ebay. For that kind of money plus a couple of more bucks, the brand new flagship killer Mi 10 T Pro is available soonest. Hopefully, the OP makes the right decision. Here is a MiCommunity article about the beformentionened Mi 10 T Pro for kind reference: Get Ready to Meet the Inspirational Mi 10T Series!
