Xiaomi announced to start the rollout of the stable version of its custom skin MIUI 12 on select Redmi models. Xiaomi has not mentioned which devices will be getting the update first but we expected the company to follow the update schedule it published months ago.
This means devices like the Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, Mi 9, Mi 9T, and Mi 9T Pro could be receiving the new custom ROM pretty soon as these phones are part of the round one of the MIUI 12 update schedule.
Xiaomi had unveiled the MIUI 12 as an update to the MIUI 11 in April this year and announced the global version of the custom skin in May. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer had confirmed to start the round one of MIUI 12 stable roll out from June but did not give a date for the round two of the rollout. We expect the second batch of Xiaomi phones to receive the update in the coming weeks.
We introduced floating windows to enable perfect multitasking on phones. Now you don’t have to switch between apps when you’re multitasking a few things on your phone. You can open and close a window in a single tap. #MIUI12 #DecadesMasterpiece pic.twitter.com/6eUqOf7r4f
