New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on October 22, 2020) follows:

Many Xiaomi devices that were eligible for an update to MIUI 12 have bagged the update. We have been maintaining a dedicated tracker and you can check that out here.

As the company strives to move past this rollout, there are a few devices that haven’t bagged this update yet.


At the time of writing, devices such as the Redmi Note 8, Redmi 8, Redmi Note 9S, just to mention but a few, were yet to bag this update.

In this post, we shall look at the global Redmi Note 9 Pro, not to be mistaken with the Indian Redmi Note 9 Pro, which is sold globally as the Redmi Note 9S. Launched earlier this year, this device ran Android 10-based MIUI 11 out of the box.

The device is in line for an update to MIUI 12 and at the time of writing, MIUI 12 update is only available for the Note 9 Pro and Note 9S in select regions outside China.

It has been hinted that the update will arrive soon in other regions, but there is no explanation as to why it is taking too long.

This, despite previous confirmation that this update would hit the eligible devices in October. We’re left with a week to the end of the month so, what’s the status of this update?

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S aka Redmi Note 9 Pro

Well, when asked by a user about the state of MIUI 12 for the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9S, a Xiaomi Community Forum moderator says:

We don’t have any information or any ETA for the update. From what we know, the updates for Note 9S and 9 Pro are in testing, so kindly wait.
Thank you for your patience.

Cheers! 🙂
