Both devices offered Android 10-based MIUI 11 out-of-the-box and now run the Android 11-based MIUI 12 custom skin.
While the wait was on for the MIUI 12.5 update, it seems that the Chinese Poco X2 variant i.e., Xiaomi Redmi K30 4G, is finally getting it now.
As per recent reports, the Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 beta stable update is now out for the Redmi K30 4G in China.
