The Mi A1 is powered by stock Android, meaning it avoids one of the arguably least desirable aspects of regular Xiaomi phones (MIUI) and gets one of the most desirable of others (stock Android). Interested? You'll need to download the MIUI Global Forum app from the Play Store, head to the Recruitment tab, fill out the requisite information, and hit Submit.

It remains to be known when the Mi A1 will receive the Android Oreo update but there are claims that the update might be rolled out before the end of this year. Unlike the Mi 6 Android Oreo beta program announced a few days ago as a China-exclusive affair, the Mi A1 beta test is open to users from all parts of the world, with applicants only being required to speak English and use QQ to communicate with the company. The company at the launch had also announced that it would release the Android Oreo update by the end of this year. You can follow the instruction given on Miui official site to take part in Android 8.0 Oreo beta test programme. And with Android Oreo starting to be ubiquitous, the Chinese manufacturer is looking for beta testers to help test Oreo software. The company is giving preference to active forum users.
