Xiaomi has been updating its devices to MIUI 12 since April. The company is yet to finish the rollout as the list of eligible devices is long and there are multiple versions of certain devices. The Redmi Note 8 from the second half of 2018 began to get the update only in late September in China, followed by the global rollout in October. Now, the users in India are also being treated with the latest version of MIUI.
The Redmi Note 8 has been Xiaomi’s best-seller worldwide multiple times in the past quarters. Despite that, the company did not provide the Android 10 update to this handset, let alone MIUI 12. The device only received MIUI 11 update after its launch.
But now, a year after its release, the firm began to deliver MIUI 12 update along with Android 10 in China. The same update was later extended to other regions and now, it has finally reached India, which is Xiaomi’s largest market outside its home country.
The MIUI 12 update for Redmi Note 8 users in India comes with build number V188.8.131.52.QCOINXM. Like all OTA system update, it is currently being pushed in batches. If early adopters don’t face any critical issues, the build will be made available for more users in the coming days.
The Redmi Note 8 is not eligible for Android 11 update and therefore, the currently rolling out Android 10 update is its last Android upgrade. However, it should receive MIUI 13 whenever Xiaomi releases it.
