Xiaomi has steadily stuck to its MIUI 12 timeline to a great extent and now that the year is about to end, the company looks forward to wrapping up its MIUI 12 deployment.

With the looming introduction of MIUI 12.5, MIUI 12 beta development has already been put to a closure. Xiaomi is now aiming for a quick shift of gears and release MIUI 12 to the devices that are yet to experience it.


As for the stepped-up version of MIUI, it will be bundled with loads of optimizations, thereby providing enhanced stability ahead of the company’s major update to MIUI 13.

There are reports coming to light about a possible rollout of MIUI 12.5 starting next year. This however is going to follow the same deployment pattern as it always has, with its first build only limited to China’s Closed Beta recruits.

An exciting development, which is also the center of attraction for a million Xiaomi users is that a stable MIUI 12.5 update may arrive as early as February end. Here’s what the sources say (translated transcript):

MIUI 12.5 update will arrive at the earliest as STABLE around the end of February. Currently even Closed Beta has stopped. Do not believe those who fuss in vain, because there is nothing.

He is also currently on vacation in China. There is always a 20-day vacation at these times, even if there is no MIUI upgrade. MIUI 12.5 normally would have seen the first Chinese Closed Beta around January 2-3 if it wasn’t a holiday.


But hold your horses before moving ahead. Although this news comes from a source that has been reliable ever since we’ve got our hands on it, it is still advised to take this with a pinch of salt.

After taking into account the device hierarchy, long internal testing, and the pace at which Xiaomi seems to be working, it would certainly take a significant amount of time to reach the tail-end of the list.

The development should follow the usual process of closed beta, weekly beta, and China stable before hitting the global scene. This should take some time.

An official announcement of MIUI 12.5 and eligible devices is still expected from the company’s end. Until then, everything around us comes under the ambit of speculations.

Well, in any case, Xiaomi users have every reason to be happy with the sprightly developments going around in Xiaomi camps, the Android 11 transition, upcoming MIUI 12.5, followed by a major shift to MIUI 13.
