MIUI 12 beta and internal testing will be halted between September 30 and October 12, according to a new report. The break in development may also result in a pause to phase three of Xiaomi's MIUI 12 release schedule for devices like older Redmi Note handsets.

Xiaomi will suspend MIUI 12 beta development between September 30 and October 12, according to Piunikaweb. The news follows the announcement that the company has begun testing Android 11 on a bunch of new devices. These include the likes of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K30, which have already received MIUI 12.

Apparently, the reason for the suspension lies with the timing of China's National Day holiday period this year. According to a post on the Xiaomi & MIUI News Telegram channel, Xiaomi will release test builds over September 28 and September 29, but these will then be ceased until October 12. Additionally, the company will not release any beta builds from September 30 until October 9.

Piunikaweb claims that this suspension of development builds will 'highly impact the pace' of the third round of MIUI 12 updates. Albeit only a restriction on the Chinese branch of MIUI, all test and beta builds of MIUI 12 start in China, so a pause on development in China effectively halts Xiaomi's progress elsewhere.
