We are expecting a new update with a newer security patch, but guess the delay is due to MIUI 12.5 development. I hope they push a new patch soon. No ETA for now.

Great and thank you. Iam heavy user of Mi8 lite and this phone is still excellent with lots of power. I hope Xiaomi change their mind and prepare Android 11 with MIUI 12,5 version.

Many thanks!
