The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G released in May this year and it came with Android 10 alongside MIUI 11. The device is also known as the Mi 10 Youth Edition 5G. Being part of the company’s flagship Mi 10 series, it was but obvious that it will get the MIUI 12 skin.

Last month, Xiaomi released the MIUI 12 update for the Mi 10 in China. Further, the Mi 10 Lite in the country also began receiving the new skin.

All this while, there was not much information shared for the European variants of the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Lite 5G. Well, the wait for the update is now ended since the Mi 10 Lite 5G has bagged the stable MIUI 12 update in Europe.
