The Redmi 7A, like any other Redmi A series device, was the global best-seller of its time. The smartphone was introduced with MIUI 10 based on Android Pie. It was later updated to MIUI 11 and Android 10 respectively. Now, the handset has begun to receive MIUI 12 update.
The MIUI 12 update for Redmi 7A is currently only live in China. The update comes with build number V126.96.36.199.QCMCNXM and is in the ‘Stable Beta’ phase. Hence, it is being rolled out to select users in the country.
If the early adopters don’t face any major issues, we expect Xiaomi to extend the availability of this update to more users in its home country China. Further, we also expect the company to start seeding the update to other regional variants of this phone namely Global, EEA, India, and Russia in the coming days.
That said, MIUI 12 is the last major MIUI update for Redmi 7A. It may or may not receive MIUI 12.5 later this year. Since this handset is not eligible for Android 11, users will have to stick with Android 10Android.
Also, it is worth noting that Xiaomi had recently canceled the MIUI 12 update for Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3 citing performance issues. The irony is that these two smartphones feature better internals than the entry-level Redmi 7A.
