Original story (published on September 01, 2020) follows:

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite has been in line to receive the MIUI 12 update for a while. It released in May this year and came pre-installed with Android 10 alongside Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 skin.

In early August, Xiaomi rolled out an OTA update for the device, however, it brought along the same MIUI 11 skin. And up until now, Xiaomi didn’t share any details regarding the rollout of MIUI 12 for the Mi Note 10 Lite.

However, Xiaomi did release MIUI 12 for the Global and European variants of the standard Mi Note 10. Furthermore, the Global Mi Note 10 Pro also picked up the stable MIUI 12 build a couple of days ago.

The new update is rolling out with software version 12.0.2.0.QFNMIXM which has been bumped up from the previous MIUI 11-based version 11.0.8.0.QFNMIXM. As expected, it brings a ton of new features and improvements to the device.
