Android 8.0 Oreo Beta available for Xiaomi Mi Box international version

Xiaomi is starting to distribute via OTA the expected update for the Xiaomi Mi Box international version, based on Android 8.0 Oreo, an update that at the moment is only reaching a few beta testers and it seems that at the moment has not jumped in Europe. A new version of Android that comes after a long wait and that updates this TV-Box from Android 6.0, skipping version 7.0, something that we had already pointed out on occasion.

This new version based on Android 8.0 would come loaded with new features since it would finally include the expected support for HDR natively, RGB mode  that will give us support for old Sony or Phillips televisions and automatic refresh change  to avoid the judder effect in the videos among other changes. Some changes that at first seem positive but due to the experiences of those who are testing this Beta, the general stability of the system will still require several patches.

The aesthetic changes will also have a great relevance in this update since it includes the new Android TV Home  graphic environment  with Google Assistant included. A few aesthetic changes that can take our toll as the new Android 8.0 launcher is not compatible with all the apps available in the Android TV store and we may have management problems, which is why for example the Nvidia Shield console is still in Android 7.0 . No doubt an update that will have crumbs and that surely comes accompanied by patches in the short term.

Xiaomi Mi Box International version  can be purchased at Gearbest for only € 55.62 ($66.77) shipping included.
