The Redmi Note 8 Pro released in 2019 and is still one of the best mid-rangers out there. It packs in the Mediatek Helio G90T which makes it an excellent option for mobile gamers on a budget. On the software front, the device came with Android 9 Pie out of the gate. But Xiaomi has since rolled out Android 10 for the device.

Although, the Android 10 update was based on MIUI 11 rather than the latest MIUI 12 skin from the company. Xiaomi has been working on bringing the stable MIUI 12 update to the smartphone for a while now. Earlier, we reported that testing for the global variant of the device is already underway.

According to new information, Redmi Note 8 Pro users in India would not have to wait much longer for the update. A moderator on the Mi Community posted a comment stating that the MIUI 12 update is currently being tested by Mi Pilot testers.
