It has been reported that Redmi Note 8 smartphones will be receiving the MIUI 12 software update within the next few months. According to a well-known tipster, the Redmi Note 8 Pro could receive MIUI 12 by July with the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T getting the update shortly afterwards, most likely in August.
Daniel R Deakin,

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.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
