Ever since the launch of MIUI 12 happened in April, Xiaomi users got pretty excited to know when this new and shiny, feature-loaded latest iteration of MIUI will arrive on their phones. Well, Xiaomi as you would expect, shared an update roadmap for Chinese users first and after a few weeks, made the global MIUI 12 update roadmap live for the Xiaomi fans. Globally a good number of Xiaomi phones have already grabbed MIUI 12 update. You can head over here to know about all the Xiaomi phones that have received the stable MIUI 12 ROM, globally. However, Redmi Note 8T users are also pretty enthusiastic to know when the MIUI 12 update would arrive on their phones.
A new report might not go in well with the Redmi Note 8T users because, as per the latest comment coming in from a Xiaomi device team member the Redmi Note 8T users will have to wait for “a few months” before they can enjoy all the features of MIUI 12. What features are we talking about? Well, MIUI 12 brings in new design, new animations, dynamic weather, enhanced privacy, revamped control center, Super Wallpapers (3D models of Earth and Mars), dedicated app drawer, Android 10 navigation gestures, floating windows, enhanced Dark Mode (dark mode 2.0), Mi Share, Focus Mode, Xiaomi Health, AI Calling and much more. But by the looks of it, Redmi Note 8T users will have to wait till the end of Q3 2020 to get their hands on MIUI 12.
If we go by the shared MIUI 12 global roadmap, Phase 2 of the rollout begins from this month and we are not exactly sure what “a few months” means. All in all, we can expect the update to arrive in Q3 of 2020. Now the only option Redmi Note 8T users have is to wait for the update as and when it is pushed by the OEM for the phone. We will keep you posted once the update is rolling out for Redmi Note 8T.
