MIUI 12.5 beta registration opens up for 21 Xiaomi and Redmi devices: Room for the Redmi Note 7, Mi 9, and Mi 10 but the Redmi Note 8 has to wait
MIUI 12.5 beta testing registration has started in China and a list of 21 Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones has been shared, revealing an interesting selection of devices that will be among the first to experience the delights that MIUI 12.5 is supposedly bringing with it. There are some notable absences from the qualifying list; however, it appears those particular smartphones are in need of a further Android upgrade before progressing onto MIUI 12.5.
The list of Redmi and Xiaomi smartphones that have been accepted into the MIUI 12.5 testing program, which was apparently posted on the official MIUI WeChat channel and shared via Xiaomiui on Telegram, is as follows:

It’s an eclectic list that features many members of the Redmi K30 and Xiaomi Mi 10 ranges. Obviously, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 11 is expected to already operate on MIUI 12.5. An additional list was provided in the instructions for signing up that included devices that would not be part of the current scheme but will possibly be part of future MIUI 12.5 plans: Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi CC9, Mi 9 Lite, Mi CC9 Meitu Edition, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10i, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi 9T, Redmi 9 Power.
