A month after the Chinese MIUI 12 launch conference, Xiaomi held a separate online event for global markets. At the end of this event, the company revealed the complete list of smartphones that will be getting MIUI 12.
The list included almost all the devices that launched in the last two years. Therefore, Redmi Y3, Redmi 7, Redmi 6, and Redmi 6A were part of it. But unfortunately, Xiaomi has removed these four handsets from the eligibility list after seven months since publishing it.

The company claims that these devices will not be updated to MIUI 12 due to ‘compatibility and performance issues’.
For those unaware, MIUI 12 on Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO smartphones differ by models. Not all devices support every feature and the availability of certain features differs by region as well. Because MIUI is a heavy Android skin like any other Chinese mobile UI, it requires more horsepower.
This is the primary reason why vivo OriginOS is limited to flagship as well as select mid-range smartphones.
But still, it’s terrible that these global best-sellers from Xiaomi have only received a single MIUI as well as Android updates. Also, the latter update (Android 10) is yet to roll out globally for Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3.
