Android 8.1 Oreo coming to the Xiaomi Mi A1, but with an issue

Xiaomi Mi A1

Most of the users who are using the Xiaomi Mi A1 device will be tired of waiting for Android 8.1 Oreo update. However, it seems that finally, their wait is over. Mi A1 was the first smartphone by Xiaomi that was powered by Android One. It was one of the most popular Xiaomi smartphones because of its simple design. Mi A1 was a combination of a handsome design, top-of-the-line software, and great performance. Also, the solid battery life of Mi A1 makes it one of the best budget phones available.

Android 8.1 Oreo update for Xiaomi Mi A1:

The Mi A1 smartphone received the Android 8.0 Oreo update at the end of the year 2017. However, it seems that the company took too much time for rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo. However, the update also comes with two major bugs.

The Android 8.1 Oreo update comes in the bundle with the June security patch. The download size for the update is at around 1.15GB. However, the update description will not mention anything about the Android 8.1 Oreo update. The new 8.1 Oreo update will bring some minor UI changes for the power menu, an update for the Launcher3 and a SystemUI theme. This new theme will adapt to the user’s wallpaper’s color. The new update also brings a battery indicator for all Bluetooth devices connected to the smartphone. According to some reports, the update also brings an improvement to the phone’s sound quality.

Unfortunately, the new update also brings some major bugs to the user’s smartphone. According to some reports, many Mi A1 owners are reporting about their SMS history wiping out after the update. The deletion will occur after the user will swipe away the messages app from recent apps.
