Xiaomi has started rolling out the Android 10 operating system to the Mi A2 handset. The software update comes bearing the build number QKQ1.190910.002V18.104.22.168.QDIMIXM and the package has a size of 1.3GB. While user reports confirm that the new firmware is rolling out in India, there is no information if it is being pushed to devices outside the country. Also, worth mentioning is that the update seems to be rolling out around the globe in a staged manner, so it might take some time for all the devices to get the new software. Although, if you don’t want to wait for the OTA, you can download the latest update from XDA Developers and install it manually.
The update offers Android 10’s native features such as the dark mode and gesture navigation. It also brings Android’s December security patch. Unfortunately, even the latest software doesn’t bring VoWiFi to the Mi A2, which everyone was expecting it to offer. Users also report that the new firmware has a decent number of bugs and a rather sluggish performance. Hopefully, Xiaomi will roll out yet another software update to the smartphone to fix the issues. Anyway, we don’t have a changelog of the new firmware at the moment; we’ll post it here as soon as we get our hands on it.
To recall, the Mi A2 was launched in July 2018 with the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system onboard. It received the Android 9 Pie OS in November 2018. Now that the Mi A2 is receiving the Android 10 OS, the brand has rolled out two major OS updates to the device, which, I think, is pretty impressive. In my opinion, this is the last OS upgrade Xiaomi is offering to the Mi A2, and you shouldn’t expect the device to get the upcoming, Android 11 operating system.
