Xiaomi rolls out beta stable MIUI 12 update to Redmi Note 8 units in India (Download link inside)
Finally, folks in India can install the stable MIUI 12 update on their Redmi Note 8 handsets.
The Chinese variant further went on to bag the stable update weeks ago, leaving those on the global variants asking questions about MIUI 12 availability.
The issue was, for some reason, affecting those on the previous MIUI 220.127.116.11 version – something that Xiaomi has gone ahead to acknowledge as a bug, promising to fix it asap.
As those on the global ROM wait for a patched-up version, the Indian Redmi Note 8 variant has now started receiving the beta stable MIUI 12 update. The update arrives as MIUI 18.104.22.168.QCOINXM.
For some reason, though, the changelog provided does not reflect what the update in question brings, as seen below:
– Updated Android Security Patch to October 2020. Increased system security.
The global variant bagged the update to MIUI 12 along with September security patch.
The fact that the Indian variant has a newer security patch could suggest any instances of the issues in the global variant may have been addressed.
That said, the rollout is ongoing over the air. And it is typical with OTA updates, you may have to wait for several days or even weeks before the download notification shows up on your handset.
