It must be noted that the Redmi Note 9 Pro was expected to receive the MIUI 12 update in Europe this month as per the General Manager at Xiaomi Indonesia, Alvin Tse.

Another interesting thing to note is that the Redmi Note 9 Pro did receive the latest custom skin in Europe back in October.

However, the update version was meant for the Turkish Redmi Note 9 Pro variant and not for the rest of Europe (EEA region).


It is good to see that Xiaomi has finally provided the much awaited MIUI 12 update to all variants of the Redmi Note 9 Pro.

Nevertheless, few devices are still in line for MIUI 12 but it seems that Xiaomi might deliver the latest custom skin to all remaining devices in the near future.

That said, we will keep tracking the development of MIUI 12 and will provide more details when new information becomes available.
