The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro was one of the three Mi 8 series smartphones launched in 2018. Being a flagship smartphone, the handset has received two Android updates and has now started to get its third and probably the final MIUI update in the form of MIUI 12 in global markets.
The Mi 8 Pro launched alongside Mi 8 Lite in the second half of 2018 after the popular POCO F1. The handset debuted with MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo. It was then updated to MIUI 10 and MIUI 11 along with Android Pie and Android 10.
The company started rolling out MIUI 12 to this phone in mid-August in China. Now, three months later, the global variant of this smartphone has finally begun to receive this update with build number V18.104.22.168.QECMIXM.
The software build released by the firm is currently in the ‘Stable Beta’ stage. That means it is only available for beta testers and select users running the stable build. If there are no major issues with this release, then it will be made available for more users, followed by a wider rollout with the ‘Stable’ tag.
Having said that, Xiaomi is yet to release MIUI 12 for the Russian version of Mi 8 Pro. Also, MIUI 12 could be the last major update for this smartphone as it is neither eligible for Android 11 and there’s a little chance for it to get MIUI 13.
