It’s a little surprising that the Redmi Note 8 Pro isn’t launching with MIUI 11 out-of-the-box. In fact, according to Xiaomi’s calendar, it will be the last phone to get the MIUI 11 update. Further, just because Xiaomi is updating these phones to MIUI doesn’t necessarily mean that all these devices will be updated to Android 10. We will have to wait and watch out on that one.
Xiaomi says that the MIUI 11 update “significantly upgrades the design element and brings a new set of refined features with a visually enhanced interface with Dark Mode,” plus it brings “new customizations to the popular Always-on display” in compatible phones. The MIUI 11 update will also bring new dynamic ambient nature sounds for notifications plus a new Mint Keyboard with support for over 25 Indian languages.
