Xiaomi’s Android One smartphone – The Xiaomi Mi A1, was supposed to get the Android Oreo update by the end of 2017. As a matter of fact Xiaomi did keep their promise by rolling out the update on the eve of New Year. But all didn’t go well for Xiaomi. The Android Oreo update for Mi A1 seemed to have been rushed to meet the deadline.
After updating their devices to Android Oreo, many users reported problems like unresponsive apps, battery drainage, problems with the fingerprint sensor and more. As a result, Xiaomi pulled the update last week and promised to resume the roll-out after it patches the issues.
Xiaomi Resumes Android Oreo update for the Mi A1
It appears like it didn’t take too long for for Xiaomi to fix all the problems in the first build. As the Chinese manufacturer has confirmed the rollout of Android Oreo for the Mi A1 once again.
If you have already upgraded your Mi A1 to Android Oreo, you’ll still get the new update. It weighs about 90MB. But those who haven’t updated their devices yet, Android Oreo update for Xiaomi Mi A1 is about 1.12GB in size.
The new update reportedly resolves the Bluetooth battery drain, random reboots and other issues, it also restores the gesture functionality of the fingerprint reader. What’s new is the addition of January security patch. The latest security patch appeared in the last beta update but somehow didn’t make it to the original update. Anyways, it’s here now.
