The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, Mi 8 Lite and Mi Max 3 join the MIUI 12 brigade
The company has delivered on its promise to upgrade the Mi 8 Pro to MIUI 12 this week. The update has been rolled out to Chinese handsets and carries the build number V18.104.22.168.QECCNXM. The full build clocks in at 2.1 GB, but the over-air-upgrade (OTA) will be a much smaller download. You can pick up the build from Xiaomi's servers should you prefer to install it manually.
Similarly, the Mi Max 3 has been upgraded to Xiaomi's latest OS. Again, this is a Chinese build, but these typically precede wider rollouts. The inaugural MIUI 12 update for the Mi Max 3 is slightly smaller than the one for the Mi 8 Pro, but it is still a 2.0 GB download.
Finally, the Chinese edition of the Mi 8 Lite has also started receiving MIUI 12. Like the Mi 8 Pro, V22.214.171.124.QDTCNXM is a 2.1 GB download. The Mi 8 Lite will eventually be upgraded to MIUI 12 on the global, Indonesian and Russia branches of MIUI, too. You can download the three builds from the links below.
