A year ago, Xiaomi launched the Redmi 8A Dual budget smartphone in India. This handset debuted with MIUI 11 based on Android 9.0 Pie. The device was later updated to Android 10 in September. Now, it has started receiving the promised MIUI 12 update.
The MIUI 12 update for the Redmi 8A Dual in India comes with build number V188.8.131.52.QCQINXM. Like any other new MIUI release, the latest build for this smartphone is currently in the Stable Beta phase.
Hence, the update is only available for select users. If the early adopters don’t come across any major issues, we expect the company to roll out the build to a wide audience in the coming days. Similarly, the Redmi 8A Dual is sold as Redmi 8A Pro in Indonesia. Hence, that device should also get the MIUI 12 very soon.
Usually, Xiaomi provides a single Android update and two MIUI updates for its Redmi A series of smartphones. Hence, the Redmi 8A Dual has a chance of getting MIUI 13. But we cannot tell for usre as lately the company has been cancelling updates
Anyway, if you happen to own this smartphone, then head over to Settings > About Phone > MIUI version and check for updates to see if your unit has received the OTA update.
