Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 is among the many devices that have received the MIUI 12 update. The Global, European, Indian, and Indonesian Redmi Note 9 variants picked the latest custom skin after the Chinese variant, known as Xiaomi Redmi 10X 4G, bagged MIUI 12 back in June.

However, the update was re-released for the Chinese Redmi Note 9 variant after a month. Also, the Global variant got the re-released MIUI 12 update back in August. Now, it seems that the Indian Redmi Note 9 variant is also getting the same treatment.

It seems that the OEM is rolling out a new MIUI 12 update to the Redmi Note 9 in India. The update might be re-released because not everyone got their hands on the MIUI 12 version
