This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (from Sept. 05) follows:

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite launched with Android 10 alongside MIUI 11 onboard and up until recently, users had been waiting for Xiaomi to roll out MIUI 12. Fortunately, Xiaomi did release its latest skin for the device a few days ago.

But like most other software updates, the update to MIUI 12 didn’t arrive in all regions. Instead, Xiaomi released MIUI 12 for the Global variants of the Mi Note 10 Lite. The last MIUI-11 based update rolled out back in August for Global units.

While Global Mi Note 10 Lite owners have been blessed with the new software skin, users with the European variants have been left waiting. However, it seems that’s no longer going to be the case.

This is because it appears that Xiaomi has started rolling out its MIUI 12 skin for the device in Europe. The new update comes as with the software version, up from the previous MIUI 11-based version

Of course, the new update brings a bunch of new features and improvements to the device. So if you wish to see all the new changes that MIUI 12 has brought along for the European units of the Mi Note 10 Lite, we’ve added the changelog below:

Control center

– New: When Notification shade is open, swipe down from the upper right corner to open Control center
– Optimization: Control center is now closed by incoming calls

System animations

The update is being rolled out to users over the air and it can take anywhere between a few hours or even a few days before it arrives on your device. Therefore, if you aren’t willing to wait to get your hands on the new skin from Xiaomi, we’ve got you covered.
