It’s all excitement for Redmi 5 Plus (also Redmi Note 5) users as Xiaomi is rolling out Android Oreo update to the budget midrange smartphone via OTA update.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus Oreo

When the Redmi 5 Plus was launched sometime in December 2017, one of the downsides identified was that it came out of the box with the Android Nougat operating system. However, with this update, Xiaomi seem to be righting its wrong.

The Oreo 8.1 update brings features native to the OS like new emoji, picture-in-picture mode, notifications dots, snooze notifications etc to the Redmi 5 Plus as well as new features like Face Unlock, smart assistant, image search, and other performance enhancements.

The Oreo v8.1 isn’t available to all Redmi 5 Plus users via OTA update yet but Xiaomi has released a link to download the update (sized 1GB) for users who can’t wait for the OTA to update theirs manually.

The Redmi 5 Plus is the bigger and better variant of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and it launched with a 5.99-inch FHD display in 18:9 aspect ratio, 12-megapixels sensor on the rear, 5-megapixels front-facing selfie shooter, fingerprint sensor, IR blaster, 3GB and 4GB RAM variants, 32GB or 64GB of storage, Snapdragon 625 SoC and 4,000mAh battery.
