MIUI 12 is rolling out more widely for the global version of the Pocophone F1, according to multiple reports. V12.0.2.0.QEJMIXM is rolling out now as an OTA, while the Redmi 8A Dual has been upgraded to Android 10, sans MIUI 12.

It seems that MIUI 12 is now reaching more Pocophone F1 handsets - the global edition specifically. Xiaomi started issuing V12.0.2.0.QEJMIXM to the global variant last week, but it generally rolls out OS upgrades in batches. Now, there are multiple reports of V12.0.2.0.QEJMIXM reaching handsets by way of an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade.

The OTA update is approximately a 790 MB download, although this may vary between devices. You can grab the OTA from here, which is a link to Xiaomi's servers, if your device is yet to receive a notification to download V12.0.2.0.QEJMIXM.

Similarly, Xiaomi has upgraded the Redmi 8A Dual to Android 10. The device remains on MIUI 11 for the time being, but it is a step in the right direction, at least. Xiaomi has called the update V11.0.1.0.QCQINXM, denoting that it is intended only for devices enrolled on the Indian branch of MIUI. V11.0.1.0.QCQINXM also upgrades the Redmi 8A Dual to the August set of security patches. The recovery and fastboot ROMs can be downloaded manually via the links below.
