Update: The MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro can be downloaded from the link here. It is based on Android Oreo 8.1 update. It is a Recovery ROM, which means that it can be flashed via the MIUI Updater app. It doesn’t require an unlocked bootloader, and users will not lose any data if they upgrade from an MIUI 9 ROM.
The good thing not only stops here but in some markets, the device will possibly come pre-installed with MIUI 10 right out of the box. The update will be rolled out in slots so it may take a while for the update to reach every Redmi Note 6 Pro phone to receive the update notification.
The users who have already received the update have already been giving us the heads-up for the improvements in MIUI 10. Some users have reported that the Camera & the Gallery apps have got some cool tools for adding up effects to your photos like studio lighting, blur effects, light trails, etc.
Another improvement is more of a fix; the notch looks more refined & polished after the latest update along with the battery percentage coming back in the settings. The update also seems to have made the user experience of the custom MIUI more smooth & the performance feels a bit more snappy.
Also, just like any other update, there seem to have introduced some issues with the latest update, as the users complain about the clock not being in the play or looking bad. Some users noticed problems when playing music via headphones. Also, the volume slider looks half-baked.
In a broader approach, we could say that this is a decent major OS update release & Xiaomi will pay heed to the newly introduced issues with this new update. We can expect a wider roll-out of this update by the end of this week.
