This is a great deal cheaper than the 8t heat
Be aware, this version of the phone is stuck on MIUI 9 unless you unlock the bootloader and flash a different branch of MIUI because they never bothered to update the 3 mi 8

I thought I read somewhere that it does update to Android 10 through MIUI 10? Can anyone confirm?

The normal mi 8 has miui 11 running Android 10, this one sold through 3 has a custom branch of miui that was never updated

If you can unlock the bootloader you can install LineageOS. It's officially supported and just received Android 10.

The model purchased via 3 has a different firmware version number and is updated via the network and not via Xiaomi. The phones purchased via Amazon etc will update but this possibly won't.

Thanks for the info
I have the global version and Android 10 is available for it. I have however left MIUI and am currently using a custom rom.
Had deal since October got £50 casback as well, and always offered unlimited data for extra £3. Mui software but buggy, always updating preferred android one software on A2lite. Phone good quality but updates make it freeze occasionally.on miui 11 not an improvement over 9.

Does the custom rom have threes WiFi calling?
It's updated to MIUI 11 and Android 9. Happy with that
