Rumors have started spreading that the Android 10-based MIUI 12 update for the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T could be just days away. However, Xiaomi seems to be teasing Redmi Note 8 owners at the moment by releasing an Android 9-based MIUI 11 global update for the popular smartphone.

The MIUI 12 saga has been going on some months now, and while certain Xiaomi and Redmi devices have managed to be updated smoothly and quickly, the same cannot be said for the Redmi Note 8. We recently reported that the MIUI 12 update for this smartphone had started rolling out in China, leaving Redmi Note 8 owners in other parts of the world excited about the prospect of getting a MIUI 12/Android 10 double whammy anytime soon.

However, Xiaomi has just released a software update for the Redmi Note 8, and it is based on Android 9 for MIUI 11. According to the official Mi community forum, the software contains some bug fixes and a security patch, but this has led some to speculate that Xiaomi is laying the groundwork for an impending MIUI 12 rollout. The new MIUI 11 update for the Redmi Note 8 is version V11.0.11.0.PCOMIXM.

There has been a report that MIUI 12 for Redmi Note 8 devices outside of China will start being rolled out before October 10; however, the source for this seems somewhat spurious in a “friend of a friend told me” kind of way, so take it with a pinch of salt. A Mi community feedback team member has simply offered “no ETA for update”, so once again Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T owners will have to wait and see if this new MIUI 11 update is a signpost for MIUI 12 or just a simple patch.
