Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite have started receiving the MIUI 10 Global Stable update, according to some user reports. The update is reportedly rolling out as an over-the-air (OTA) package in India. While the new MIUI version brings a list of interface-level changes to the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite, it doesn't upgrade the operating system to Android Oreo. This means that even after installing the latest update, your Redmi phone will continue to run Android 7.1 Nougat. The Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite smartphones were introduced back in November 2017. 

As multiple users reported on the Mi Community forums, the MIUI 10 Global Stable update for the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite is around 507MB of size. The update, particularly for the Redmi Y1, brings MIUI v10.2.1.0.NDKMIXM, as per the screenshots shared by the users.

MIUI 10 update changelog

The changelog featured on one of the screenshots highlights that the MIUI 10 Global Stable update for the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite brings an updated Android security patch. The update also apparently fixes the interface for switching between the front and rear cameras during video calls and addresses issues around notifications. Furthermore, it is found to fix issues related to the lock screen, status bar, and notification bar, and the default recorder app.
