Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro gets Android 9-based MIUI 12 update
Shortly after the release of new software updates for the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi 7A, the Redmi Note 6 Pro also gets the MIUI 12 firmware. The problem with the update is that it only carries Android 9 Pie inside, although the Redmi Note 6 Pro was introduced in 2018 with Android 8.1 Oreo and is supposed to get Android 10 sooner or later.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 636-powered Redmi Note 6 Pro finally gets MIUI 12 and the update comes inside a 732 MB package that also includes the November 2020 security patch from Google, a few interface optimizations, and the usual minor tweaks and fixes. The version number of the new firmware is 18.104.22.168 PEKMIXM.
Although Android 10 is still not here for the Redmi Note 6 Pro, at least this handset is not facing compatibility issues as it happened with the Redmi 7, Redmi 6A, and Redmi Y3, which did not get MIUI 12 at all. However, even for the Redmi Note 6 Pro, we are apparently talking about a release labeled as "Beta Stable" that might take a few days to reach users all over the world.
