Last month, shortly after Microsoft released a preview version of Windows 11, enthusiasts installed the Windows 11 operating system on Xiaomi’s Mi 8 smartphone — this is, of course, not an official image, but a unique build created by users. Development of this build began shortly after the same developers uploaded the new OS to the Lumia 950 XL smartphone. Moreover, a new report claims that the project to flash the Windows 11 operating system on the Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone has made significant progress. The video associated with the project demonstrates GPU support, power management, Wi-Fi, and some other features that work fine on the device. However, there are still some problems that are quite difficult to solve.

For example, there are still problems with the Bluetooth driver and the GPU cannot display x64 programs. But we expect many issues to be resolved in the coming weeks or months as development continues. It is worth saying that Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and Xiaomi Mi 8 are not the only smartphones running the Windows 11 operating system. According to the report, several devices based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 successfully run the latest version of the Windows operating system. This is a pretty good demonstration that modern devices can be used to experiment with different operating systems.
