Xiaomi has started rolling out MIUI 10 Global Beta build 8.9.7 based on Google’s Android 9.0 Pie operating system for its Mi Mix 2S smartphone. The update is 2GB in size, according to user reports and comes with the promise of better performance compared to the earlier beta ROM based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Mi Mix 2S was also one of the partner phones for the Android P beta when it was first announced at Google’s I/O conference in May this year.
To download and install the ROM on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S users can head over to the company’s official MIUI forum and download either the Recovery ROM or the Fastboot ROM.
