MIUI 13 reportedly delayed for further optimizing as more devices are added to Xiaomi's internal Android 12 beta testing
There has been considerable chatter lately in regard to the release date for MIUI 13, with many believing Xiaomi would launch its latest and greatest Android skin this August. However, it has now been reported that new devices from the Chinese OEM, such as the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 and Mi Pad 5, will initially operate on MIUI 12.5. Owners of supported Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO smartphones will be looking forward to MIUI 13’s new features, such as increased virtual memory expansion, and the redesigned control center.
The well-known leaker Digital Chat Station has made the comment that those waiting for MIUI 13 will have to wait longer for the Android overlay. It seems possible that the software update requires further optimizations before release, so that it doesn’t suffer from the same sort of bug onslaught that befell MIUI 12. While Xiaomi continues to iron out any potential issues with MIUI 13, it appears Android 12 update beta testing is going ahead without too many problems.
The latest Xiaomi and Redmi Android 12 update list published by @xiaomiui only has a few changes from the previous iteration. However, the new list shows that the POCO F2 Pro, Redmi K30 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro Zoom have all moved to the “devices in internal beta of Android 12” section. While this is an unofficial list (see image below) the original poster does claim that the information comes from internal Xiaomi and MIUI sources.
