Redmi 5A Gold

Xiaomi has started rolling out the MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the entry-level Redmi 5A smartphone. Unlike the previous MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the Redmi 5A, the latest update is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Xiaomi had released the Android Nougat-based MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the entry-level smartphone last month. The Redmi 5A was launched in November last year with Android 7.1 Nougat-based MIUI 9 out of the box.

Redmi 5A Owners Can Now Download the Latest MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM

The Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Redmi 5A arrives as MIUI 10.1.2.0.OCKMIFI and weighs in at roughly 1.3GB in terms of size. In case you have not received a notification regarding the software update yet, there is no reason to worry. For now, the update has reportedly been pushed out only to a small number of users. In the coming days, however, the company is expected to roll out the update to a larger number of users. If you are feeling impatient, you can download the Android Oreo-based MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM here and flash it on your Redmi 5A. According to the official changelog, the update comes with a few new features and some bug fixes. The latest MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the Redmi 5A also comes with the November Android security patch.

While Xiaomi has rolled out the Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the majority of its current smartphone lineup, owners of the Redmi 5 are still waiting for the update. The Oreo-based MIUI 10 Global Stable update for the Redmi 5 is expected to add Dual 4G VoLTE support in addition to the usual Oreo goodies. The MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM with the Dual 4G VoLTE feature was rolled out to the device last month. It is possible that Xiaomi may begin pushing the stable Android Oreo update for the Redmi 5 before the end of the year. As with the Redmi 5A users, however, most Redmi 5 owners will probably have to wait until early next month to receive the update via the OTA route.
