Interestingly, the Mi 9 Pro 5G came with MIUI 11 out of the box and the device is in the early batch to get the MIUI 12 custom UI in China by the end of June.

Talking about the Android 10 update for the phone, it arrives with version number V11.0.6.0.QFXCNXM and along with the latest OS, it bumps the security patch level to April 2020.

The update is quite hefty at 2.6 GB in size, so it advised to download the update on a stable internet connection. Here is the complete changelog of the update:

– Stable MIUI based on Android 10
– Updated Android Security Patch to April 2020. Increased system security.
