Xiaomi Mi Note Pro LineageOS 15.0 ROM based on Android 8.0 Oreo available for download

Xiaomi introduced the Note series back in 2015 with the Mi Note smartphone. It was a much needed refreshed look from the mainstream polycarbonate devices that the company was going for. This was later upgraded and launched as Mi Note Pro in a few months, upgrading the RAM to 4GB (from 3GB on Mi Note), and processor from Snapdragon 801 to 810. While next year, in 2016, Xiaomi launched the Mi Note 2 follow up on Mi Note and Mi Note Pro.

Xiaomi likes to use a custom skinned version of Android, which is not necessarily a bad thing, however, it takes away from the stock UI. Most users do prefer the custom skinned version as it adds a few additional features, but, if you are looking for an alternate ROM, then the LineageOS is a great option to consider.

Besides, the new LineageOS 15.0 is also available for the Mi Note Pro and this is based on Android 8.0 Oreo update, which is currently the latest version of software out right now.

And considering the fact that Xiaomi usually takes time to update its smartphones, this could be your best bet to run Android Oreo right now. Just like all the new versions of Android, this one also brings a few new visual changes.

Do make a note that this particular version of the software is not official yet and hence, be advised that you may experience minor hiccups ever so often. But it is also worth noting that this software has been made available to a handful of other Xiaomi smartphone as well, like the Mi 5s and the Mi 5s Plus.
