Xiaomi initially announced MIUI 12.5 at the Mi 11 China launch event in late December 2020. Later, the company unveiled MIUI 12.5 Global at the Mi 11 launch event for international markets. At the same event, the firm even revealed the list of eligible devices. In fact, the Chinese smartphone maker had even started recruiting global pilot (beta) testers before the announcement. Now, a little over a month later, Xiaomi has opened registrations for MIUI 12.5 India beta program.
For those unaware, Xiaomi (Mi, Redmi, POCO) smartphones run different MIUI builds based on the regions they are sold in. Since India is the company’s largest market outside mainland China, almost all phones sold in India ship with MIUI India ROM.
Talking about MIUI 12.5, it is the latest version of Xiaomi’s mobile operating system. It is a minor upgrade over MIUI 12, which was introduced in late April 2020. The new version focuses on performance, privacy, sounds & haptics, and uninstallable system apps to name a few.
The company has been rolling out MIUI 12.5 weekly beta builds in China since the initial announcement. Similarly, the company has been even running MIUI 12.5 Global Beta program for quite a while now.
Hence, Xiaomi has now started recruiting beta testers for MIUI 12.5 India. Since Mi Community India is now disabled in the country, the company seems to have shared the registration form via some other media. We are not sure how they shared the form but we came across it through PiunikaWeb
