MIUI 12 update arrives for the Mi Mix 3 5G ahead of schedule
The Mi Mix 3 5G was stuck on MIUI 10 for ages but has now risen from the ashes in spectacular style, with Xiaomi finally sending out the MIUI 12 update to owners of the phone in Europe. The update does not bring Android 10, however.
The Mi Mix 3 5G was the forgotten off-spring of Xiaomi's lineup for a long time, with the phone staying on MIUI 10 and Android Pie even when other phones had received the MIUI 12 and Android 10 updates. That has changed now, thankfully.
The Mi Mix 3 5G is now receiving the MIUI 12 update in Europe. Months ago, we reported that Xiaomi would send out a security patch in July, followed by the MIUI 12 update in October. While the promised July update ended up arriving in August, Xiaomi has balanced the scales by sending the MIUI 12 update ahead of schedule.
The MIUI 12 update for the Mi Mix 3 5G bears the software designation "MIUI 188.8.131.52 PEMEUXM", showing that it's for the EU model of the device. The Vodafone model should get its update shortly. The OTA brings a 958 MB download that delivers all the MIUI 12 features to owners of the Mix 3 5G.
After this, the Mi Mix 3 5G will receive another security update in December, then yet another in March. At this point, we cannot confirm rumors of a planned Android 10 rollout for the device.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017.
