Xiaomi Redmi 5A MIUI 10 Update (With Download Links & Update Timeline)

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is the was launched last year in December and set a new benchmark more the entry-level smartphones. Xiaomi even advertised it as ‘Desh ka Smartphone’ in India. The device was overall good with a disappointing battery compared to its predecessor the Redmi 4A.

The smartphone initially ran on MIUI 9 which was based on Android Nougat 7.1.2. Later Redmi 5A got the MIUI 9 beta based on the Android 8.0 Oreo in January which came with major bug fixes and new features. The company is yet to roll out the final stable build which we expect it to roll out somewhere in Q3 or Q4 2018.

Many users have raised complaints about the late updates in official forums and many have turned to custom ROM’s for new features and upgraded performance. In this post, we will be talking about the Redmi 5A MIUI 10 Update.

How is MIUI 10 different?

MIUI was officially announced on January 23 in a media event in Hong Kong where they told that the upcoming version will focus on AI and Machine learning which will make a lot of processes automatic by predicting real-world decisions. The new version will adapt according to your usage habits and divert the power to a certain set of apps. This will mean less lag, faster navigation more power and efficiency.


The AI will be able to recognise real-world features like distinguish your gender, age, frame along with artificial objects like landscape, sky, flowers, grass, buildings. The upcoming update is said to bring a flurry of improvements over the current MIUI 9 and faster performance is one of them.

The battery of the Redmi 5A was not good as it’s predecessor. But with the MIUI 10 AI we can expect it to significantly improve using the power where it is necessary. This may also mean faster charge time.

Will my device support it?

Xiaomi has previously announced that 6 devices namely the Mi 2/2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime and Mi Note will not be getting further updates.  It was speculated that devices running Android Marshmallow and above will only qualify for the update until the company gave a full list of the compatible devices. They are

Mi Series: Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 5X, Mi 5C, Mi 4, Mi 4C, Mi 4s, Mi 3, Mi Mix, Mix 2s, Mi Max, Mi Max 2, Mi note 2 and Mi Note 2.

As you can see above, the Redmi 5A makes it to the list but it’s highly unlikely that will roll out this year given Xiaomi’s record of lagging updates. The beta version may start this year which will be available beyond Chinese users like India, where there is a large fan base.  The final rollout will be launched in China first and eventually spread to other markets.
