Redmi 8A likely to get stable MIUI 12 update in August
Given the sheer number of Xiaomi phones out there, it is quite cumbersome to determine if a device is eligible for software upgrades. Thankfully, things have been a lot easier this time around, as we have a clear idea as to when each device will get the MIUI 12 update.
An alleged roadmap leaked earlier this month hinted that the Redmi 8A would receive the MIUI update sometime in August. A Xiaomi India community forum moderator has now pegged its release date as August.
Xiaomi is yet to open its MIUI 12 beta program for the Redmi 8A. That is likely to precede the actual rollout by a few days. As always, Chinese variants of the phone will receive the update before the global/Indian versions.
MIUI 12 started hitting the airwaves in June and is now available for a host of popular Xiaomi and Redmi devices such as the Mi 9, Redmi K20, and Redmi Note 8 series. We can expect to see more devices join that list in the coming weeks.
