Xiaomi looking for beta testers for Mi A1 Oreo update

The company at the launch had also announced that it would release the Android Oreo update by the end of this year. This requires that you provide them your IMEI number and then download the Xiaomi MIUI Forum application from the Play Store.

Beta testing unreleased versions of Android is something that has become more and more popular these days.

The registrations for Mi A1 users are open until December 11, 9:29 PM IST. Once downloaded, go to the "Recruitment" section on the app's homepage. Of course, you would need to own a Xiaomi Mi A1 unit, and provide the IMEI numbers through the secure application process. Xiaomi states that the applicant must ideally have an interest to test betas and some knowledge about ROMs. Before you enroll for Beta testing, be mindful that Beta builds are unstable and prone to occasional bugs and crashes.

Xiaomi launched the Mi A1 running stock Android 7.1.2 Nougat (and the stock part makes ideal sense considering that it's part of the Android One program). The phone comes with the Android One Program and gets fast updates.

Xiaomi Mi A1 sports a metal unibody design and features 5.5-inch Full-HD resolution display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top.

In terms of camera, it has a dual 12MP+12MP wide-angle/telephoto rear camera with 26mm lens and f/2.2 aperture / 50mm lens and f/2.6 aperture, 2X optical zoom, 1.25µm large pixels and dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and a 5MP front-snapper. The phone runs on a mid-range octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. There is also expandable storage option up to 128GB using a microSD card. You'll be asked to fill out a few things including your IMEI number, what times you use the device, your region, and a reason why you feel you would be a good beta tester.
