Two of the top tech Chinese smartphones launched in 2016, the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus and Mi 5S will receive the new system version by the end of the summer. Indeed, having been released with the Android version Marshmallow, they would eventually be upgraded to the Nougat . Now, we learn that they will also receive Google’sAndroid Oreo.
The confirmation comes through the Chinese press, more specifically ItHome , thus appeasing the mood of the users. Both terminals, though no longer new, remain top-of-the-range, and as such, their users require extensive support with system upgrades.
The complaints and consternation was felt in the profile of Lei Jun (CEO of Xiaomi) in the social network Weibo. Complaining above all of the lack of attention dedicated to both tops of range – Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus and Mi 5S.
In the meantime, the company itself would make public explain why such a delay, as well as all the underlying reasons. More specifically, Android maker claims technical issues alluding to the dual camera of the Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus smartphone.
Android Oreo will arrive at Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus and Mi 5s in October
On the positive side, the Chinese manufacturer says it is working closely with Qualcomm to get around the problem. The American technology is responsible for the production and consequently maintenance of the SoC (system on chip). As such, you must provide the software ( drivers ), among other files necessary to update the components of both smartphones.
We can also highlight the concern shown with the Xiaomi Mi 5s ultrasonic fingerprint reader. So far the Chinese technology and Qualcomm have not yet found a solution to a registered bug . However, they are confident that this will not be long.
Already for the users of Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus and Mi 5S, the brand itself states that until October the update will be ready. It will be from there that will begin to be distributed a new firmware based on the version of Google’s Android system Oreo.
So that such will happen will be the first to know. Until then, we will be attentive to any new development.
