Original story (published on July 20, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi’s latest skin for Android phones is known as MIUI 12. It was first announced back in April and has since then been steadily rolling out to eligible devices.

Of course, the update did not make its way to all supported phones at once. Instead, Xiaomi is rolling out the update in phases. During the announcement, there was no mention of when the second batch of devices will begin receiving MIUI 12.

A couple of days ago, the Redmi K20 Pro began receiving the update in India. Further, a new report indicates that a bunch of devices are expected to begin receiving the update from August in Indonesia.

Well, it seems there’s some more good news for users. According to an official comment made on Weibo by the MIUI team, the second batch of devices will begin receiving the stable MIUI 12 update by the of July in China.

Here’s a screenshot of the comment that has been translated to English:


Going by this information, we can expect the update begin rolling out to phones from the second batch in a couple of days. Devices that are part of the second batch include the following:

  • Mi MIX 3
  • Mi MIX 2S
  • Mi CC9 Pro
  • Mi CC9
  • Mi CC9 Meitu Edition
  • Mi 9 SE
  • Mi 8 UD
  • Mi 8 Transparent Edition
  • Mi 8
  • Redmi Note 8 Pro
  • Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Redmi Note 7

Earlier, we reported that the MIUI 12 beta for Redmi Note 7, Note 8, Mi Mix 3 and Mi CC9e was delayed. Whether this will also result in a delay for the stable MIUI 12 update is yet to be seen.

We also shared an alleged roadmap for the new skin for phase 2, 3, and 4. Unfortunately, there’s still no ETA for the devices in phase 3 and 4.

Usually, updates are first pushed for devices in China and make their way over to global units in a couple of weeks. Although, we can’t say for certain whether when the devices outside of China will begin receiving the stable MIUI 12 update.

The MIUI 12 update roadmap for the Global variants can be found here. Nonetheless, you can visit out MIUI 12 update tracker to know when it arrives on your device.

As usual, we will continue tracking the rollout and will provide more information on the matter if and when anything new pops up.
