Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 is among those devices that are yet to bag the MIUI 12 update while users had been waiting for quite some time now.

While the Chinese Redmi Note 7 variant bagged the stable MIUI 12 update back in July, those on the global units were anxious for the latest custom skin.

  • Version: V12.0.1.0.QFGMIXM
  • Android: 10

The Xiaomi & MIUI News Telegram channel also announced the update so all Redmi Note 7 users can expect it soon as the rollout appears to be taking place on a wider scale.

Xiaomi took quite some time with the global Redmi Note 7 update considering how the Chinese variant picked the same months ago.

Nevertheless, it is only natural of OEMs to take some time to refine major updates like MIUI 12 so that user experience does not get compromised.


It must be noted that the development of Redmi Note 7 has had a few hiccups along the way as the beta updates got postponed multiple times due to stability issues.

The pilot testing ended for the device in question in early October while official details also revealed that MIUI 12 rollout will take place in October itself.

With this update, the Redmi Note 7 has finally joined the MIUI 12 portfolio while several devices are still awaiting the latest custom skin.


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