New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on November 05, 2020) follows:
Xiaomi has been rolling out the MIUI 12 OTA update to the remaining devices. Among them, the Redmi Note 8 global variant.
However, multiple users of the Redmi Note 8 are not getting the MIUI 12 update which is live over the air due to an unknown issue.
Also, users of the device in question have taken to the Mi Stable Tester-Global Telegram channel to report the same.
Now, it seems that those on the MIUI 18.104.22.168 build for the Redmi Note 8 global variant are most affected.
The same has also been confirmed by the Xiaomi feedback team members on the Mi Community while also stating that the issue is being worked upon.
The feedback team members have asked users to be patient for the developers are already working to resolve the OTA issue on priority.
The same has been announced on the Xiaomi Global Community Telegram channel which means those on the MIUI 22.214.171.124 build will have to wait until the developers fix the issue.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Please note that MIUI 12 has released to all users of Redmi Note 8 Global and China but the users using 126.96.36.199 Global are facing the issue with the update. If you are using 188.8.131.52 Global rom, please wait patiently and try to update later. If you are using other roms, it hasn’t released yet, it will release once it is ready by devs. Thanks
