Xiaomi Mi A1 gets updated with November security patch and other improvements

In the latest report from Gizmochina, Xiaomi has started recruiting testers for a closed beta of Android Oreo for the Mi 6 smartphone. It seems that the company is now starting to roll out a new update for the smartphone. However, some users also said that they are receiving an update of 460MB. The latter is because the update might bring the previous security patches and bug fixes as well along with it. It may take some time for the update to reach every device, but it looks like Xiaomi has already started testing Android Oreo. The new update is supposed to improve security and fix related bugs as well.

While you wait for the Android Oreo update, make sure you download the latest software to keep your phone secure. Unfortunately, Xiaomi has rolled out this update after some of the other manufacturers.

If you're thinking about Oreo, the Mi A1 will get it pretty soon right in line with flagships in December.

A whopping 70-plus percent of Americans said they plan to spend some money during the Thanksgiving/Black Friday shopping period. The Southlake Mall, at US 30 and Mississippi Street in Hobart, opens at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving and stays open until midnight.

Earlier this year saw the release of Android Nougat beta in January, so we can safely assume that it would be the case for Android Oreo this time round.

For those who have been expecting and waiting for Android 8.0 Oreo to arrive, the update will disappoint as it contains everything but that. The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display with the 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass protection. It offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB by adding a microSD card.

To recap on specs, the Xiaomi Mi A1 flaunts a dual camera setup at its rear with a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 12MP telephoto lens along with 2x optical zoom and portrait mode as well. Talking about connectivity options, the handset comes with 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well on board.
