After sending out a MIUI 12 update to the Redmi Note 9 in China last week, Xiaomi is finally delivering the update to global users. Hence begins the MIUI 12 global beta stable rollout for the Helio G85-powered Redmi Note 9, and the update weighs in at just over 500 MB.

Update: It appears most Redmi Note 9 owners are unable to download the update after receiving it, which is likley an issue from Xiaomi's servers. Thankfully, there's an easy fix. Simply use a VPN and download the update. See more here.


Exactly a week ago, Xiaomi sent out the MIUI 12 update to the Redmi Note 9 in its home country of China. The company has now expanded the rollout, however, and has begun seeding the global beta stable MIUI 12 update to owners of the Redmi Note 9.

It's important to note that this is the global beta stable update, so will not be rolling out to all global Redmi Note 9 owners at once. Some will randomly receive the update before Xiaomi further expands the rollout—as long as there are no major bug issues.

The OTA bears the build designation "V12.0.2.0.QJOMIXM", and weighs in at 507 MB. Going by comments on the Mi Forum, it doesn't bring the Super Live Wallpaper feature, as that seems to be exclusive to Xiaomi's premium phones like the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Redmi K20 Pro, Mi Mix 3, and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The company  believes it to be too resource-intensive for mid-range chipsets.
