Xiaomi launched Mi 8 Lite in China in September 2018 with MIUI 10 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Now, the device received an MIUI 11 update.
Xiaomi usually does not have any frequency of issuing the MIUI global stable ROM update, but the Global Stable ROM is updated for every 30 to 50 days.
The device received several new features that come along with MIUI 11 update that includes Dynamic Clock, Kaleidoscope effects, and custom codes that can be placed on the always-on lock screen. It also brings a Floating Calculator, a new minimalistic design, new dynamic sound effects, Wallpaper Carousel, a new Mi File Manager app, and even a Steps Tracker.
Until now, the Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 update is tough to track as it has a critical naming convention for the update, and there are separate upgrades across multiple regions. Apart from this complexity, there also seems to be a minimal distinction between the builds. It means only for the Mi Pilot beta testing program. It implies that the builds assigned for this group will not be installed on devices with Mi Accounts that do not have appropriate permission. And the same build gets opens up as stable release, causing a lot of confusion. If you get an error message indicating the update is only for closed beta testers, you can even sideload the update.
