Earlier this month, Xiaomi released Android 10 for the popular Android One smartphone range including Mi A2 and Mi A3. This meant good news for the Lite variants of the A2 and A3 series as well. The day has finally arrived. Stable Android 10 update just rolled out for the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite in the regions of Europe and Asia. So simply go to settings > system updates > and check for any OTA updates. Alternatively, download the full Fastboot ROM from below and update your Mi A2 Lite to Android 10 manually.
Apparently, the internal beta program for Mi A2 series is over and the manufacturer just released stable builds of Android 10 for Mi A2 Lite as well codenamed – daisy. The OTA comes in a large package of 1.3 GB in size, whereas, the full Fastboot ROM comes in a package of 1.63 GB. It packs all the beloved Android 10 goodies including Dark Mode (or Dark Theme for Android One), smart reply, brand new gesture navigation system, advanced privacy and location controls, and the latest Android security patch level.
However, as reported by some users, the update is not quite stable for the first release. Some of the bugs still persist in this new update. Users for Mi A2 lite who updated to Android 10 over-the-air reported bootloops, light bleeding from the bottom of the LCD screen, UI glitches, etc. But those are only a few cases. Plus, some other important features like VoWiFi may also be missing with this update; as it did with the regular Mi A2. Regardless, you can still update your device automatically via OTA update or manually via fastboot ROM.
