Xiaomi may have started rolling out Google's latest operating system Android Oreo to some of its flagships, but there are dozens of popular smartphones that are yet to receive MIUI 9 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. Now, the good news is that the Chinese smartphone maker is seeding the firmware to 40 devices.
