Xiaomi's much talked about MIUI 12 is steadily making its way to all eligible devices and the popular Redmi Note 8 series also expected to get the update soon globally. Previously, we reported that MIUI 12 for the Redmi Note 8 is likely to land some time in late July or early August. Now, we are getting some additional clarity on the expected rollout time frame for several devices including the Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8T, and the Redmi Note 8 Pro.

A definite date for the availability of official MIUI 12 bits is still not available, but a confirmation from a member of the Device Team should mean something concrete. Responding to a user query in the Mi Community forums regarding the expected timeline for MIUI 12 on the Redmi Note 8T, a member of the Xiaomi Device Team replied,

As always, No ETA for software updates. But probably it will release by next month. [sic]"

A similar statement was made by the same rep regarding the Note 8. This very well means that the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T are likely to be graced with stable MIUI 12 bits some time in August. The initial MIUI 12 beta for the Redmi Note 8T did suffer a setback, so it is safe to assume that it may take about a month's time to iron out teething issues before preparing for a wider official release.

Previously, we had reported that owners of Redmi 8 Pro in India, Europe, Indonesia, and other countries are being considered for MIUI 12 Global Stable beta testing under the aegis of the Mi Pilot program. While the global rollout has indeed begun, countries such as India, Europe, Indonesia, and Russia haven't reportedly received the stable bits yet. 

Responding to a user's query inquiring about the status of the European MIUI 12 ROM rollout, a Xiaomi moderator said,

Hey, Redmi Note 8 Pro received MIUI 12 Global Update [MI], Other regions will also get it soon [No ETA]. Kindly stay tuned on mi global community for further info. Thanks. [sic]"

Unfortunately, the moderator hasn't shared any specific timeline, which means users will have to wait a bit more longer. We expect MIUI 12 rollout for the Note 8 Pro also to commence alongside that of the Redmi Note 8 and Note 8T, which should be sometime next month.

MIUI 12 is touted to bring in several enhancements and features to the overall user experience. While every Xiaomi, Poco, and Redmi user would be eager to get it for their respective devices, we would suggest waiting for the update to roll out on its own via OTA. Xiaom even issued a warning earlier not to install early updates unless the device is enrolled in the Mi Pilot program as there is a potential risk of permanently damaging the smartphone.
