Redmi Note 8 Pro devices could start receiving MIUI 12 in July while Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T users will likely have to wait until at least August
We just reported about the MIUI 12 software rollout for Xiaomi, Redmi, and Poco smartphones and now Xiaomishka has provided a secondary update that offers a slightly more precise timeline than the one offered by Xiaomi. The original official post from the Chinese OEM stated updating would start in June, with Redmi Note 8 devices receiving MIUI 12 in “round 2”.
There are millions of Redmi Note 8 smartphone owners out there, with Xiaomi executive Lu Weibing recently offering up various reasons why over 30 million Redmi Note 8, Note 8 Pro, and Note 8T devices have been snapped up by an adoring public. However, many users have been anxious in regard to software updates; it now seems the Redmi Note 8 Pro will be updated to MIUI 12 in July while the Redmi Note 8 and 8T should receive the software in August.
Numerous other devices are listed in the second wave mentioned in Xiaomishka’s post (see image below) along with the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Smartphones that should receive MIUI 12 at round about the same time include the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, the Xiaomi Mi 10, the POCO F1, and both the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 9.
