Redmi Note 6 Pro gets MIUI 12 update


Redmi Note 6 Pro is probably the least popular Redmi Note smartphone of all time. The handset was only sold in a few regions. The device debuted with MIUI 9 based on Android 8.1 (Oreo). It was later updated to MIUI 10, Android 9.0 (Pie), and MIUI 11. Now, the phone has begun to receive the MIUI 12 update.

Unlike most Xiaomi smartphones, the Redmi Note 6 Pro only has two build channels – Global and Russia. The latter has not received any update since early 2019. In other words, the variant sold in Russia is still on MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo.

Anyway, the global variant is receiving the MIUI 12 update with build number V12.0.1.0.PEKMIXM. It is currently in the Stable Beta phase and therefore, it is only available for select users.


Xiaomi will be extending the availability of this build to more users if early adopters don’t face any major issues. We expect the complete rollout to end by this month or early February.

That said, MIUI 12 is the last major update for the Redmi Note 6 Pro just like Redmi Note 5/5 Pro, which has also started receiving this update recently. But there’s a chance that these two phones may get the minor MIUI 12.5 update later this year.

As far as the Android version is concerned, both are not eligible for Android 10, let alone Android 11. However, interested users can install custom ROMs to experience the latest version of Android.
