Mi 8 SE MIUI 10 update
Xiaomi Mi 8 SE comes preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top, but the device has since been upgraded to the stable version of MIUI 10, the latest version so far. With the global MIUI 10 yet to be made available, the current version is meant for the Chinese market, meaning you don’t get Google Apps and services out of the box (you will have to install the apps manually), although it supports the English language.
When exactly the global MIUI 10 rollout will be made available is only known to Xiaomi, but as noted, we will update this page if and when we get new info.
