Xiaomi Mi A1 Android 8 Oreo Update Suspended Again
Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first ever smartphone from Xiaomi to run stock Android OS. The Mi A1 was promised to have much better update experience thanks to Android One support. That, however, has not been the case so far.
After releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo on December 31st, the company had to suspend the rollout. On 16th January, the company resumed the rollout. It seemingly fixed all the bugs that were reported by users who updated their phones in the first wave of the rollout. Now, the company has been forced into suspending the update rollout once again.
New bugs have been unearthed in the latest build. Xiaomi would like to fix these as soon as possible. One of the USPs of the Mi A1 was the smartphone’s software experience for people who did not fancy MIUI and all its bells and whistles.
Xiaomi isn’t the first company to suspend the Android 8 Oreo update. OnePlus had to recently halt the Android 8 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 devices due to performance issues reported by users. However, the issues were fixed soon and the official rollout resumed a few days ago.
