Original story (published on August 8, 2020) follows:

The second round of the MIUI 12 rollout schedule has started and Xiaomi recently rolled the latest custom skin to devices like Mi 10, Redmi 6 Pro, and more. There are still many devices left in the second round. Among them, the Mi MIX 3 and Mi MIX 2S.

It was reported earlier that Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S MIUI 12 beta update was temporarily suspended. Also, the Mi MIX 3 5G variant is supposed to get the Android 9-based MIUI 12 update by October-end. However, it must be noted that there were no update plans for the Mi MIX 3 5G variant.

Now, the MIUI 12 stable update seems to be rolling out to the Chinese Mi MIX 3 and Mi MIX 2S variants. Users have been reporting on Weibo, China’s Twitter equivalent, that they are now receiving the latest custom skin with all the goodies.

This was expected as Xiaomi is known for updating its devices in the home country first. This means that the Global and other regional variants of the Mi MIX 3 and Mi MIX 2S might receive the MIUI 12 stable update in the coming weeks.

Nevertheless, if you want to manually install the MIUI 12 stable update on your Mi MIX 2S, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the download link for the Chinese ROM:

  • Device: Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S
  • Codename: polaris
  • Channel: China Stable
  • Version: V12.0.1.0.QDGCNXM
  • Android: 10
    • Type: Recovery

Keep in mind that this is a Chinese ROM which does not include any Google apps and services. So, it is not advisable to flash it on any other Mi MIX 2S variant as doing so can render the device unusable.

Meanwhile, keep an eye on our MIUI 12 update tracker to know when your Xiaomi device will get the latest custom skin. Also, we’ll update this story once we have the download link for the Mi MIX 3 ROM.
