The MIUI 12 is the next big thing that Mi Fans expect from Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi. Sometime last month, the company officially announced that it is ending the development of the MIUI 11 system. This sparked speculations that the MIUI 12 is on the way.

Since the announcement, we have seen a couple of lists of devices to get the MIUI 12 update. First, we saw a general list of eligible devices to get the MIUI 12 update. Later, there was another list that shows the Xiaomi devices that will get the MIUI 12 update based on Android 11.

The numerous lists make it difficult to check if your device is eligible for the MIUI 12 update based on the speculations so far. However, a new app “MIUI 12 Eligibility Test” is changing that. With this app, you can easily determine if your device will get the MIUI 12 update.

The MIUI 12 Eligibility Test is developed by Alpha Developers Official. From the information on Google Play Store, this is the only app from the developer. We have tried this app on a couple of Xiaomi phones including Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and Xiaomi Mi Max 3.

We also found an image of the Redmi S2/Y2 eligibility result. While the Mi 9SE and Max 3 are scheduled to get this update, the Redmi S2/Y2 will not.

However, we will like to advise that the MIUI 12 is still in development. A moderator on Xiaomi forum recently confirmed that there is no information on MIUI 12. His words

There are absolutely No News about MIUI 12 for now, the Development has just begun… But Yes, I’m sure it will get MIUI 12!


While its interesting to know if your device will get the MIUI 12 update, we will like to remind you again that this is not an official list from Xiaomi. Thus it’s best to take the information with a grain of salt.

No doubt, Xiaomi is currently working on the MIUI 12. Recently, the company accidentally (or maybe not) released a beta version of its stock Settings app. The app shows that Xiaomi will tweak the MIUI 12 design in areas like the Refresh rate, Focus mode and more.

In addition, the leak also shows that Xiaomi may also be working on a system-wide dark mode. In all, the Xiaomi MIUI 12 will offer a lot and we can’t wait to let you know what it holds. Keep a tab with us for more MIUI 12 update
