So every one was so hyped that Android Q just got released during the Google I/O and Xiaomi's two Snapdragon 855 powered device get to receive the blessing, the Mi 9 and Mi MIX 3 5G are both Android Q ready. Xiaomi has rolled out today the Android P Beta for Mi 9 and Mi MIX 3 5G those people who loves to explore, can flash it just like what we did here.

Unlocking the Bootloader is your first step to be able to flash the Android Q Beta

Make sure you downloaded the Fastboot ROM and place it on C Drive then put phone on Fastboot Mode

Click Refresh to detect phone, Remember to click CLEAN ALL and not Clean and LOCK, otherwise you will brick your phone

Click flash when you are all ready

We did it, the Mi 9 is now in Android Q AOSP ROM

Yes its updated all right

Here are some of the features to expect from the Android Q
●Dark Theme: One of the most requested features, Android Q now has a system-wide Dark Theme. Activate Dark Theme in Settings, or by turning on Battery Saver. Dark Theme also helps save battery.
●Gesture Navigation: Introducing a new gesture-based navigation so you can fluidly move between tasks, and maximize the use of larger, edge to edge glass screens.
●Suggested actions in notifications: You can now take action on messages with suggested actions in notification.
●Prioritized notifications: With Android Q, you can choose whether an app’s notifications are interruptive or gentle. Interruptive notifications will make noise, vibrate, and appear on your lock screen, whereas gentle ones will not. Android Q also introduces algorithms to automatically determine whether notifications should be interruptive.

Here are what you will see inside the Android P AOSP from the Mi 9.
