For other users, however, this workaround doesn't seem to do the trick. Earlier this month, Android 8.0 Oreo beta started rolling out for select Mi A1 users, suggesting that the final build could come out soon. The company will contact affected users to collect more information and bug reports so it can get to the bottom of this and deliver a fix.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi launched its first ever Android One smartphone - Mi A1 in India past year.

Since the OTA roll-out process is being carried out in phases, it will take a few days to reach all regions.

Here's what's coming on Android 8.0 Oreo?

Android Oreo has other features like including Background limits, installation of apps via APK, over 60 new emojis, notification dots, Wide-gamut colour for apps, Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, WebView enhancements and much more.

Some users have detailed the update via MIUI forums, noticing smoother animations compared to Android Nougat, which in turn makes the overall software experience a lot smoother as well. And this update is a Global Beta one, meaning it might have some bugs as well.

Waiting for major updates from Android can sometimes be such a pain, especially if your device is the previous flagship already. It is still unclear whether Xiaomi is in fact adding universal fast charge support for Mi A1 with the Oreo update.

The Mi A1 was launched in India for Rs 14,999, but after the recent permanent price cut, it is now available for Rs 13,999.

Xiaomi is not the only one, OnePlus had to pull down the Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 update for the OnePlus 5 due to inconsistent app crashes after installing the update. In our review, we found the smartphone to be an all-rounder that not only offers a pure Android experience, but also the best in class cameras.
