Three months back, Xiaomi announced the Mi 8 Lite aka the Mi 8 Youth Edition in China with Android Oreo. Now the handset is getting Android P soon as Xiaomi released a beta for the handset on its forums today. Currently, Xiaomi is seeding Android Pie to its Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition as well, as we found out last week. Moreover, the Mi MIX 2s and the POCO F1 were also treated with high priority with regards to Android Pie. Since the beta has kicked off, we will probably see a stable Android Pie version for the handset soon.
It is to be noted that beta versions usually have unaddressed bugs and issues that not all users are very comfortable with. So, if you’re more of a stable ROM user, you should stay away from this particular beta. Also, there are no details regarding the features of the new beta version right now. However, we will update readers as soon as there’s more info on it.
The Mi 8 Lite/Youth Edition was the first Xiaomi smartphone with a cool gradient color design. It has a stunning mirror effect glass on the back similar to the Huawei P20 with Twilight Gold and Dream Blue flavors. The handset has also been released globally after its Chinese launch making its way to countries like Taiwan, Ukraine, France, and Mexico.
