Unfortunately, these changes have nothing to do with owners of the high-end Redmi K30 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10, and Mi 10 Pro. These three, according to Xiaomi, will not receive MIUI 12 beta updates for three weeks, excluding the latest rollout.

Although the trio will not receive MIUI beta updates for three weeks, this will not affect the rollout of the stable version. But what remains unclear is whether the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro will receive MIUI 12 update globally during this time to match their Chinese counterparts.
