If you have ever used a Xiaomi smartphone then you may be aware of the fact that they are a little slow in providing latest Android updates for their smartphones.

Even our years old Redmi 1S is still getting updates, however, the case with the Redmi Note 5 Pro is a little different. Xiaomi for the first time has provided the latest Android 8.1 Oreo update for any of their handset except the newly released Mi8-series. This time Xiaomi has even provided the fix for the Android Oreo-based update so that users may not have to face delay issue.
