Xiaomi Mi A1 is Getting New Update, No It's not Oreo!

Android Wear gets a few tweaks with new Oreo 8.0 update but still won’t be a match Android 8.1 OTA adds HD Voice Calling for Pixel 2 XL devices on ...

The 153 MB package is right now rolling out as OTA and users should soon see it drop on their phones.

While the latest update has nothing to do with Android Oreo, it's an equally important update for those using the Xiaomi Mi A1.

This is the first time we've seen the Galaxy Note 8 Android 8.0 Oreo update and it appears to be an early release.

Android 8.1 Oreo, which is now rolling out to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices before other Android smartphones, is bringing a nifty feature that freeloaders will find absolutely useful.

Sadly, most Android users are still waiting for Android 8.0, let alone the updated version, which also fixes some annoying bugs.

During the launch period of its second and final update of Android 8.1 Developer Preview, we have claimed that the stable update can be released anytime by now. The release notes for the update prominently cite the inclusion of "HD Voice Calling for AT&T users". Android 8.0 Oreo, the new Android 8.1 brings a variety of new options with all bug fixes on the devices. On the other hand, the Chinese phone maker is also pushing the December security patch to Mi A1 units.

Seattle to Quebec City: All the latest National Hockey League expansion and relocation possibilities
The Metropolitans were actually an National Hockey League team in Seattle in 1917 that won the Stanley Cup. The NHL previously deferred an application for expansion from Quebec City in June 2016.


For now, the Factory Images of Android 8.1 stable update is available for first-gen Pixel, Nexus 6P, 5X and some other Google based smartphones.

However, if you can't wait, your best bet would be to download the system images and the OTA files and perform a manual install.

Android 8.1 should be rolling out to all recent Pixel and Nexus devices in the coming weeks.

Fast: You can stream most videos.

While digging through the software, Android Police found new speed labels next to network IDs in the Wi-Fi settings. Due to this, even though it can be downloaded and installed, it's only really available for one version of the device (SM-M950U).

As helpful as this feature might be, some users won't need it so Google is giving them the flexibility to disable the setting. That update caused incompatibility between the System Update code and the Checkin code.
