Android One is supposed to have a better than usual update experience but sometimes things don’t go smoothly. Xiaomi has suspended the Oreo update for the Mi A1 for a second time.
Here we are, almost a month after the original Oreo update was rolled out and Xiaomi announced that they suspended it again. The reason was cited to be ‘bugs.’ The Mi A1 is Xiaomi’s first device that doesn’t run their home-brewed Android Fork MIUI.
A new crop of bugs have been discovered and should be patched in the next few days. The most recently released version – build 8.1.10 – fixed a host of bugs but it clearly didn’t get them all. EIS isn’t enabled yet either.
The reason behind these repeated delays is anyone’s guess, but we’re hoping for the Oreo update to resume shortly, as the Mi A1 is arguably one of the best devices at its price point.
