New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on August 31) follows:
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro has been in line to receive the update to MIUI 12 for a long time. It released with Android 10 alongside MIUI 11 on top and was expected to get Xiaomi’s latest skin in August itself.
But for some reason, Xiaomi seems to have missed delivering on its original plan. This is because Redmi Note 9 Pro users still haven’t got the stable update and neither has the company rolled out a beta version.
However, we have been keeping tabs on the expected MIUI 12 rollout for the device. And a few days ago, we picked up a ‘Device Team’ member’s comment stating that the update may be released soon.
At present, the device is still running on Android 10 alongside MIUI 11 which is also confirmed by the latest MIUI ROM list for the Redmi Note 9 Pro that has been updated on August 29.
Naturally, users have begun to question Xiaomi regarding the status of the update. We’ve added a few user queries posted on Twitter below for reference:

And in response to a similar query from a user, Xiaomi’s General Manager in Indonesia, Alvin Tse, shed some light on the matter. In the tweet, Alvin has stated that the update will be coming in September.
Since this information is coming from a top Xiaomi official, we can safely say that users can indeed expect Xiaomi to begin releasing the MIUI 12 skin for the Redmi Note 9 Pro in the next few weeks.
Of course, we will continue to keep track of the situation and will post an update once new details surface. Meawhile, check out our dedicated tracker for the MIUI 12 rollout to know more.
