Xiaomi Redmi 5 Android 8.1 Oreo Stable update with Dual 4G VoLTE starts rolling out [Download Link]

Xiaomi India launched the Redmi 5 running MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1 Nougat back in March. Last month it was updated to MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM which was based on Android 7.1 (Nougat) only but the company started rolling out Android 8.1 (Oreo) based  MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM towards the end of last month. Now, Xiaomi has started rolling out Android 8.1 (Oreo) based MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the smartphone.

The new Android Oreo-based update comes as MIUI and is 1.3 GB in size, Xiaomi has updated the Android security patch as well and now it runs on Nov 2018 security patch. Though the update is labeled as Stable in the screenshots, it may be in the partial rollout stage. If you haven’t received the update on your device, you can download the Recovery ROM here and flash it using the recovery method.

As expected, the Oreo-based update also brings Dual 4G VoLTE feature to the device which was recently enabled in a MIUI 10 Global Beta update. As per users on Mi Community, Xiaomi has not enabled Portrait mode and Face Unlock with the update. Check out the changelog below,
