Xiaomi kicks off Android Oreo beta program for the Mi Mix 2

After delivering the promised Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Mi A1, Xiaomi now plans to release a similar update for the Mi Mix 2, the sequel to the phablet that changed the way smartphone makers design their products.

Xiaomi has just announced that it is now recruiting testers for its Android Oreo beta program for the Mi Mix 2. More importantly, the recruitment is made for the global version of the highly-anticipated update.

According to Xiaomi, Mi Mix 2 owners interested to participate in the beta program will be able to apply until the end of January 8. Applications are accepted from all regions, but all communication will be made in English.

One last requirement that you should meet is that you must be using the latest MIUI Global Developer ROM, meaning your Mi Mix 2 should run the latest stable version of Android.

5T is out of beta...They're just canceled the current one because of a bug. Next thing they're getting is a step ahead of now.

I think you'll find that miui and most oem skins are actually one or two iterations ahead of stock Android. Upgrading miui to Oreo is no big deal for Xiaomi users. My Mi Mix2 is on Miui9 Nougat but I've received two significant updates already in less than two weeks of ownership. Same frequency happened with my Redmi Note 3 Pro.
