MIUI 12 continues to roll out to more and more devices, much to the delight of Xiaomi and Redmi device users. We have a dedicated MIUI 12 tracker to help keep tabs on this rollout to various Xiaomi devices in their respective regions.

Recently, we saw MIUI 12 roll out to the Xiaomi Mi 9T. This update was reported by users of the European, Russian and the Global variants of this device.

However, a few days after the rollout, we saw the update get pulled in many regions. The company cited some minor issues that it said were being checked by the team as the reason for halting the update.

Today, the global variant of the Mi 9T is getting a new beta stable build of MIUI 12. with V12.0.3.0 QFJMIXM . With this new build, the issues that caused the initial rollout to be halted have presumably been addressed.
