A report out of China sourcing a Xiaomi official has listed 25 devices that should soon start receiving the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition software update. The third-batch list, which includes all variants of the Xiaomi Pad 5, the Redmi K30 models, some Mi 9 phones, and even the aging Redmi Note 8 Pro, is for devices with the China ROM. Users with different ROM versions will have a slightly longer wait.

No less than 25 Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones and tablets, and their identical global market or POCO counterparts, have been included on a list of devices posted by a Xiaomi executive (via Chinese media site ITHome) that will soon be receiving the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition update. According to the post, some devices that have the China ROM will start being updated in November while a wider rollout for this third phase of the software upgrade should commence in December.

The 25 devices that can expect the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition upgrade over the coming weeks are as follows:

  • Xiaomi CIVI
  • Xiaomi Pad 5, Pad 5 Pro, Pad 5 Pro 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi CC9 (Mi 9 Lite), Mi CC9 Pro (Mi Note 10/Pro), Mi CC9 Meitu Customized Edition
  • Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition
  • Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 9 Pro, Mi 9 SE
  • Redmi Note 8 Pro
  • Redmi 9
  • Redmi 10X 4G (Redmi Note 9), Redmi 10X 5G, Redmi 10X Pro 5G
  • Redmi Note 11 5G (POCO M4 Pro 5G), Redmi Note 11 Pro
  • Redmi K20 (Mi 9T), Redmi K20 Pro (Mi 9T Pro)
  • Redmi K30 (POCO X2), Redmi K30 5G, Redmi K30i 5G, Redmi K30 Ultra
  • Redmi K40 Gaming Edition (POCO F3 GT)

Undoubtedly, there will likely be some obstacles in the forms of bugs and glitches that pop up during the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition third batch rollout that might result in delays for users with Global, EU, Russian, etc., ROMs. However, some owners of the above devices with non-China ROMs should start seeing update notifications appearing before December.

The Enhanced Edition of MIUI 12.5 is more about fixing software issues and tweaking apps to improve performance rather than offering flashy UI updates. In fact, it has been reported that over 300 fixes make up the software package, with greater battery life, system resources allocation optimizations, and “liquid storage” being just some of the updates included.
