It seemed impossible but an Android 9 BETA has already started to be distributed for the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 TV-Box, the first international Xiaomi TV-Box model that was replaced by the Xiaomi Mi Box S. This device included the AMlogic S905X-H SoC as we saw in one of our reviews some time ago. Of course being a BETA version it has some bugs but with the base of the Xiaomi Mi Box S it can be quite polished. We recommend waiting for the official stable OTA if we are not in a hurry.
- Xiaomi Mi Box S is available in Amazon, Walmart, Gearbest, Geekbuying, Banggood or Aliexpress for a aprox. 50/70$
This update is only for the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 with reference MDZ-16-AB, it has a weight of 620MB and system version number R2810. Now this version is BETA and is only distributed to users who are signed up for this system, it is no longer possible to sign up. There is no specific date when the final version published by OTA will be distributed
- Updated to Android 9
- Support for the My Remote remote control app
