[News] Xiaomi Mi A1 Android 8.1 Oreo beta update leaks with May security patch

Earlier today we broke news about the Xiaomi Mi A1’s successor. The Mi A1 was Xiaomi’s first Android One device and their CEO said there would be more this year. However, that doesn’t mean the original is getting left by the wayside. Android 8.1 Oreo beta ROM has leaked for the Mi A1 and you can download it right now

Users in the Xiaomi Mi A1 XDA forum have already got the update up and running, as you can see in the screenshot above. This is a leaked update to the beta ROM and it is still very much a beta. Currently, the stock camera doesn’t work but Google Camera ports are working. There aren’t a ton of new features going from Android 8.0 to Android 8.1. One noticeable difference is the black theme when you use a dark wallpaper. The other big thing is the May security patch, which isn’t even available on Pixel phones yet.

Users are reporting that Treble is not enabled and they don’t see the new adaptive icons. The new Power menu is included and VoLTE does appear to be working, but there is no logo. If you would like to try this beta update on your device, you can find the download link below. You will need to flash it through TWRP. Keep in mind there are bugs present in this release. Visit the Mi A1 forum link below to report on your findings. We expect the official OTA release to be available in the coming weeks.
