Of course, the update is only live for the Chinese Redmi K30 Pro currently which means the global variant is yet to get a taste of MIUI 12.5. In case you’re unaware, the global variant goes by the name of Poco F2 Pro.

Moreover, the update changelog given above is specific to the Chinese variant of MIUI 12.5. The global variant has always lacked a few features and the same will hold true in this case as well.


Some of the stuff that will be lacking on the global variant include Xiao AI, MIUI+, and some Xiaomi Cloud features. It is unclear when these features will make it to the global MIUI 12.5 variant but they should soon after a period of testing.
