Xiaomi promises to deliver a faster and smoother OS with MIUI 12.5
Xiaomi has announced the global launch event of MIUI 12.5, its latest in-house OS. Building on MIUI 12, MIUI 12.5 will supposedly be faster and smoother than its predecessor, although it is unclear how at this stage. Nonetheless, MIUI 12.5 will arrive alongside the Mi 11 during next Monday's live stream, which commences at 12:00 UTC. According to Xiaomi, the event will be available to watch on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and its Mi Community platform.
We expect the Mi 11 to be the first device to receive MIUI 12.5. However, Xiaomi may launch the Mi 11 globally on MIUI 12 as it did in China. The company is already testing MIUI 12.5 on the Mi 11 in China though, so the global variant should receive it swiftly, at any rate.
Xiaomi has already confirmed that it will upgrade 27 devices to MIUI 12.5, including many Redmi handsets like the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro. The company should release MIUI 12.5 to more devices than that though, such as the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Mi 10T Pro.
