Xiaomi has officially announced Mi MIX 2 Android 8.0 Oreo beta program via a thread on the official MIUI forum. It is a closed beta which means only a few MIUI forum users will be selected and can take some time (even months) before we see the release of the stable version.
The Android Oreo update for the Mi MIX 2 will be based on MIUI 9 which is the latest iteration Xiaomi’s take on Android. The bezel-less flagship smartphone was unveiled in India about a couple of months ago with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
