The Redmi Note 8 was tipped to receive the MIUI 12 and Android 10 update in August. That doesn't look to be feasible anymore, though, with official channels announcing that the MIUI 12 update for the phone, alongside those of the Mi Max 3, Mi 8 SE, and Redmi K20, has now been suspended.

For some reason, the Redmi Note 8 remains stuck on Android Pie and MIUI 11 an entire year after it was launched. Word from months ago claimed the phone would likely receive the MIUI 12 update in August but it appears a wrench has now been thrown into the works.

According to a report by PiunikaWeb, the MIUI 12 update for the Redmi Note 8 has now been suspended. This isn't the first time it's happened either. The source, the Xiaomi/MIUI update channel, claims the suspension of the rollout is due to stability issues. Business as usual with Xiaomi. This rollout suspension isn't particular to the Redmi Note 8, though, as the Mi Max 3, Mi 8 SE, and Redmi K20 are getting a similar treatment.

It's unknown when the Redmi Note 8 will finally receive the MIUI 12 update—which should also bring Android 10. Both the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 9 have already received stable MIUI 12 updates, leaving Redmi Note 8 owners in limbo.

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. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
