- Xiaomi is rolling out the MIUI 10.2.8.0 update to Note 7 Pro users in batches
- The update also adds March 2019 security patches
Xiaomi is pushing a new stable update to the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India which brings a ton of improvements to the rear and front-facing cameras. The new MIUI V10.2.8.0.PFHINXM is currently rolling out to the Redmi Note 7 Pro users in India in a phased manner and it will reach your phone over this week. Xiaomi also revealed the complete changelog of this update which shows that it brings major improvements to the cameras, system and a single bug fix. The update weights just over 200MB if it reaches your phone via over-the-air (OTA). Alternatively, you can sideload the recovery ROM by manually downloading it via MIUI Forums.
Redmi Note 7 Pro MIUI 10.2.8.0 Changelog Detailed
After the MIUI 10.2.8.0 update, users will be able to see sharpness improvements in both 48MP and 12MP camera modes of the rear camera. Xiaomi also fixed the portrait mode underexposure issue alongside adding improvements to low-light images and indoor auto white balance shots. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is already the best camera phone to buy under Rs 20,000, and with Xiaomi constantly rolling out software updates to the phone, it will only get better going forward.
There are some system stability fixes as well. Firstly, Xiaomi fixed the issue where the screen will not light up using gestures and it also optimised screen brightness issue which several users complained about on social media portals. The update also brings March 2019 security patches to the handset, not the latest ones, but it’s good to see Xiaomi providing at least previous month’s security patches.
Lastly, Xiaomi has fixed the call-time bubble overlapping issue with notification icons. As noted, the update is being rolled out to Redmi Note 7 Pro users in India in a phased manner and it will reach every user over the next few days.
