Original story (published on August 27, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi has released a new MIUI 12 beta update in its home country i.e., China, however, the update has not been made available for the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 7 yet.

At present, the Chinese OEM is releasing MIUI updates left, right, and center. The Mi MIX 2S and Mi 9 Lite are two of the latest devices to bag the MIUI 12 update in certain regions. Further, Xiaomi also released the new skin for the Global Mi MIX 3 a day ago.

Nevertheless, this new MIUI 12-based beta update comes with the software version 20.8.27 and is currently rolling out to users on the beta ROM over the air. It does bring a couple of new features as well such as the Device Control feature.

But according to the release notes for the new MIUI 12 beta version, the update for the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 7 has been postponed citing stability issues. Therefore, users will have to wait until the issues have been resolved before the update rolls out.
