New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 21, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 was among the first devices that got a taste of MIUI 12 update when it arrived in late April. The initial rollout, as has always been the case with MIUI updates, was limited to the Chinese market.

A month later, the global market got a sit aboard the MIUI 12 ship. But this was only for select devices, namely Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, albeit in beta. Considering their premium nature, this was always bound to happen.

Global Redmi Note 7 owners had to wait until mid-June to get the nod in the MIUI 12 Mi Pilot program, but then again, this was still a limited program for select few.


Fast forward to today, the stable MIUI 12 update is now rolling out to the Redmi Note 7. Unfortunately, the firmware is available in China, with the rest of the globe next in line. Back at home, the much-awaited stable firmware is arriving as MIUI version
