Android P is just around the corner, and we know it. It was already leaked that the date chosen would be August 20, that is, within 2 weeks. And some manufacturers are already preparing to start hosting this coveted update. Do you have a Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S? We have good news for you.
The final version of Android P be ready in August
Evan Blass, famous Android filter, has given us a very juicy hint: Android P will be presented this month. Will we see the Pixel 3?
Xiaomi has started looking for beta-testers to go adapting Android P to MIUI 10 and that the update happens to all compatible devices. All users of the Xiaomi MIX 2S will be able to try this experimental software to polish their faults until the moment when Android P is born.
The MIX 2S will be the first Xiaomi to receive Android P with MIUI 10 (in beta)
Xiaomi, through its official MIUI page, looks for users of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S to test their software based on Android P, more than possibly, MIUI 10. It could also be a hypothetical MIUI 11, but it is an unlikely scenario seeing the little time he has 10 in the market.
We warn of a detail: if you want to be part of this beta-tester team (we explain below how to add yourself) remember that you will be living together with an unstable and experimental software plagued with errors, so it is not suitable for daily use.
How can I get a beta tester?
This update it's global, so any user in any region can sign up. But it will not be enough for you to have the MIX 2S in your possession; you have to meet a series of requirements to be able to be part of the betas program and the most important is that they accept you. Logically, they do not want users who leave the program shortly or who do not report existing bugs.
To begin with, the language in which the entire program will predominate is English, so if it is not your forte, we entrust you to refrain from it. In addition, you will have to have two apps installed: QQ to communicate and the MIUI forums app, since you must be active in these to report any failures and thus give feedback To the system.
In the QQ app you must join the group of betas available there and in both one and the other you must talk with other beta-tester members. In addition, you must follow some instructions explained on this page after downloading each application.
On the other hand, the other details are more technical. You will have to have the bootloader unlocked and having to be using the latest version of the Android beta beta ROM. In addition, those who sign up for testing should be willing to flash the MIUI ROM at any time and respond to usability surveys. If you had never done a backup, it is time to start.
Finally, the call will close August 9, so you have until then to sign up. It has already become clear that this process is not at all simple and that it will not be a path of roses in your day to day. But if you want to try Android P with MIUI before anyone else, you have a MIX 2S and a lot of patience, what are you waiting for?
