[Updated] MIUI 12 update beta testing opens up early access registrations; over 30 devices officially eligible for upgrade

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (from April 27) follows:

Xiaomi has just announced the Mi 10 Lite in China. The device, known as Mi 10 Youth Edition back at home, has also been accompanied by a brand new custom skin, MIUI 12.

We’ve already highlighted quite a good number of things regarding the MIUI 12 update. Of course, some of the coverage was based on leaks and rumors, but towards the end of last week, Xiaomi started wilding with official teasers on Weibo.

A certain MIUI 12 beta update popped up early last week claiming to be from a leaked closed internal testing group. Not long after, fake beta testing programs started showing up online, but Xiaomi was quick to warn fans against enrolling in any program until at least today, April 27.

With the MIUI 12 update now official, Xiaomi has also opened the registrations into the beta testing program for those who wish to enjoy early access to the new skin.

Be reminded that this is limited to the Chinese market and hence the China ROM. Since Xiaomi discontinued the global beta testing program, we can only sit back and wait for the company to iron out all the kinks in the China ROM before pushing a near-stable version these sides.
