This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on August 05, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi is currently working on bringing the MIUI 12 update to all eligible devices from its portfolio. The European variant of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and the Mi 9T were two of the latest devices to be the MIUI 12 update amongst others.

Prior to that, many other phones have bagged Xiaomi’s latest skin over Android. To check the current status of the MIUI 12 rollout, you can take a look at our up to date MIUI 12 update tracker.

Previously, we reported that many Redmi, Mi, and Poco devices will start receiving the much-awaited update starting from this month, i.e., August. But at the time, it wasn’t clear by when all the eligible devices will get the update.

As it turns out, all the MIUI 12 eligible phones with the China ROM should get the update by the end of September. This information was shared as an announcement on Weibo (Twitter equivalent in China). Here’s a screenshot of the announcement:

As you can see, devices such as the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3, Redmi Note 7/7 Pro, Mi 9 SE and more will all bag the MIUI 12 update by the end of September. Following this, the company will begin pushing the update for the eligible devices from the third batch.

Xiaomi has already released the update for some devices from the second batch. Thus, it shouldn’t take much longer for the remaining to start receiving the MIUI 12 skin via an OTA package. The company didn’t divulge specific dates for the updates.

Of course, this also means that the MIUI 12 update will also be available for the devices sold in other regions as well. It usually takes a few weeks or a month for an update to be pushed to the Global variant of a device after it begins rolling out for Chinese units.

So we will have to wait and see for ourselves when the eligible devices begin receiving the update. On the subject of updates, Xiaomi is also scheduled to bring the stable MIUI 12-based Android 11 update in September.
