Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro and Redmi Note 5 Pro both get stable Android 9 Pie updates

Vlad, 01 June 2019

Back in March, Xiaomi started sending out beta builds of the Android 9 Pie update for both the Redmi 6 Pro and the Redmi Note 5 Pro to interested testers in India. And now it looks like all the bugs have been ironed out, because the stable update is rolling out for both devices.

It's arriving over-the-air in India, as MIUI for the Redmi 6 Pro, weighing in at 1.6GB. This release includes the May 2019 security patch level. You also get face unlock support for App lock, the ability to stay on the lock screen after using face unlock, and to restrict the opening of the notification shade on the lock screen. As you'd expect, plenty of bug fixes are built-in too.

If you have the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India, then you're getting MIUI based on Android 9 Pie, and this also comes in at around 1.6GB and packs the May 2019 security patch level, but no specific MIUI-only changes according to the changelog.

Both updates are rolling out in stages, so it may take a while before your particular device pops up the notification. Xiaomi has promised that the Redmi Y2 will get Android Pie around June.
