Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 MIUI 12 update not in sight as MIUI 11-based June security patch rolls out (Download link inside)

Xiaomi has been constantly updating its devices since the announcement of MIUI 12. While devices in the Mi 9 series and K20 series have already received the latest custom skin, other devices like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 are yet to receive it.

Released back in 2018, the Mi MIX 3 came with Android 9 Pie out of the box and was later on upgraded to Android 10 with MIUI 11.

As some of you may know, the Mi series from Xiaomi receives two major OS updates. However, there is only one major OS update offered to the Redmi family. This might change as the Redmi series is coming up with premium devices like K20 Pro and many more.

We highlighted in one of our earlier coverages that the Global Stable MIUI 12 update for the Mi MIX 3 may be released in a month or two.


The first round of MIUI 12 update schedule is already done with but users are still receiving updates from the OEM. Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is listed in the second round of the update schedule. This means that the device may receive the MIUI 12 update sometime in August.

Those of you who are interested in MIUI 12 can enroll in the Mi Pilot program and test the OS on your Mi MIX 3. However, the initiative is limited to Chinese users and offers the latest Beta updates to ensure that the Global Stable release comes out with a minimum number of bugs.

Meanwhile, there is some good news as Xiaomi is pushing the MIUI 11-based June security patch to Mi MIX 3. The version V11.0.5.0.QEEMIXM is an upgrade from version V11.0.4.0.QEEMIXM.
