The update brings features like Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Actions, Slices, Intuitive Navigation, Digital Wellbeing, App Timers and more.

It’s important to note that both Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite and Mi A2 runs on Android One program that promises timely Android OS updates. In India, only Mi A2 was launched under the mid-range segment.

The handset packs a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. It was launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box and packs a 3010mAh battery.

The Android Pie update on Mi A2 is rolling out via OTA in a phased manner so it might take some time to reach all users. In the meantime, you can check manually by going to settings – system – system update – check for update.
