Xiaomi releases Android 10 based Kernel Source Codes for Mi A3, Mi A2, POCO F1 and Mi 8 Series [Update: Mi A2 Lite as well]

Update: Xiaomi has released Android 10 kernel source code for the Mi A2 Lite as well.

Xiaomi launched the very first device under Android One program in collaboration with Google back in September 2017, the Android One program guarantees a couple of Android version updates with regular security patch updates. Xiaomi has been releasing a new Android One device with a focus on cameras and design every year since 2017, and as a result, we have Mi A1, Mi A2, and Mi A3 under Android One program from Xiaomi.

The company launched the Mi A3 in India back in August and said it will be amongst the first devices to receive Android 10 update. Xiaomi has already rolled out Android 10 based MIUI update to Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 but Android One devices such as Mi A3 and Mi A2 are yet to receive Android 10 update.

The company did not share any timeline for the Android 10 roll-out but it seems like users won’t have to wait long for the update as the company has released Android 10 based kernel sources for multiple devices including Mi A3, Mi A2, POCO F1 and Mi 8 series of devices. Even though the source code is not useful for normal users, it would be helpful for Android developers and tinkerers who would like to create custom software builds. You can download the kernel source from the GitHub source link below. In case you’re looking for a mid-range Android One device with good cameras and design, check out our Mi A3 review.
