The current sensation among Xiaomi device owners is the upcoming MIUI 12 skin on top of Android. The new skin, which is set to bring a whole new look and feel to eligible devices and some swanky new live wallpapers, is rolling out to Redmi Note 8 Pro today.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, released in September 2019, remains a solid mid-range device even today. According to Xiaomi’s roadmap to MIUI 12, this device, along with a good number of other Redmi and Xiaomi devices, is set to get updated within the second phase of the rollout.

In line with that, we saw the company kickstart beta recruitment in the second week of June. After a successful recruitment, the company published the MIUI 12 tester recruitment results yesterday.

Today, Xiaomi is rolling out a stable beta build of MIUI 12 to Redmi Note 8 Pro devices. This update should be hitting the units that were selected during the recruitment program.

From the reports we have seen, the MIUI 12 update for the Redmi Note 8 Pro bears a software version number V12.0.0.4 QGGMIXM and weighs in at a little over 600MB.


In a separate post, a Xiaomi Device team representative on the company’s forum said this when asked about the status of MIUI 12 for Redmi Note 8 Pro,

Since there was a MIUI 12 Global Stable Beta Tester Recruitment for Redmi Note 8 Pro, testers will get it soon and once the test is done successfully, it will roll out to other users(maybe by this month)

With this, it is pretty much settled. Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro users should look forward to an update to MIUI 12 pretty soon. As earlier mentioned, today’s rollout is going out to users who successfully signed up for recruitment.
