The device debuted with MIUI 10 based on Android 9.
The Redmi Note 8 was one of the best smartphones of its time, selling 10 million smartphones in 3 months. The device debuted with MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. It was later updated to MIUI 11 and MIUI 12. The smartphone even has Android 10. As promised, the company has now started to release the Android 11 update for this device.
In December 2020, Xiaomi confirmed the Android 11 update for some of its smartphones from 2019. For those of you who don’t know, the company is known for only providing a single Android update for low-end devices. To everyone’s surprise, the popular Redmi Note 8 series has also been added to this new list.
In this way, Redmi Note 8 now receives the Android 11 update in China with the build number V220.127.116.11.RCOCNXM. The update is currently in the “Stable Beta” phase and is therefore only available to selected users in the country.

In any case, it should be made available to all users in the coming days. Likewise, the international versions of this phone running the MIUI regional build, namely Global, India, Indonesia and the EEA, are expected to receive it soon.
On top of that, we can also expect Xiaomi to send the Android 11 update to the Redmi Note 8T – which is basically the same device but with NFC. Three different regional MIUI builds such as Global, EEA and Russia are running on this smartphone.
The Redmi Note 8 has received two updates MIUI and Android so far. According to Xiaomi’s history, MIUI 13 could be the last major update for this smartphone.
