MIUI 12 is all the rage right now in the Xiaomi community. This, because the new skin on top of Android brings one of the most exciting UI changes we have seen on any Android skin in a while.

Already, a good number of Xiaomi, Poco, and Redmi devices have received this update in various regions, with plans for continued rollout to devices and regions that haven’t gotten this build. More on that in our dedicated MIUI 12 tracker.

Mi Note 10

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 turned a lot of heads when it launched late last year. Sold in China as the Mi CC9 Pro, this device packed a massive 108MP camera sensor, a novelty at the time. It is powered by the Snapdragon 730G and a massive 5260mAh battery.

Couple that with 6/8GB of RAM and you have yourself a beefy device on your hands. It ran Android 9 out of the box with the company’s own MIUI 11 but has since bagged an update to Android 10.

Earlier this month, we saw the Mi Note 10 bag the much awaited MIUI 12 update. However, this build went out to the Global variants of this device only. Well, today, Xiaomi is seeking to extend the same MIUI 12 to the European variant of the Mi Note 10.

This update which weighs in at 855MB bears a software version number V12.0.1.0.QFDEUXM and is going out as an OTA to users of the Mi Note 10 running the latest MIUI 11 build version number V11.1.2.0.QFDEUXM. Below is the update’s changelog.
