New updates by May 09, 2020– The official MIUI 12 update will be released globally on May 19, 2020. This has been confirmed by a tweet from the MIUI official twitter account.
Finally, Xiaomi has released the latest MIUI 12 beta update for plenty of its devices as a closed beta. Although the update is eligible for Chinese variants only as of now, interested users can also install the new update along with the Gapps package in order to use Google apps and services properly. The MIUI 12 beta update is available with the software version 20.4.27 for all the eligible devices. If you’re also interested in using this ROM, then check out the links to download MIUI 12 ROM for supported Xiaomi devices.
The MIUI 12 Beta update is based on either Android 9.0 Pie or Android 10 versions, according to the device model. So, you don’t need to worry about the major Android version. Just check whether your device model is listed below or not and if listed, then download the firmware directly. However, we will recommend you to take a full backup of the device data at first as this is the early beta version and brings bugs or stability issues in most cases.
Meanwhile, those who can wait for the official stable release should stick to their official MIUI 11 version right now. But if you’ve already made up your mind to have a try out the MIUI 12 beta with additional features and changes then you’re welcome. It’s worth mentioning that the first batch of MIUI 12 China stable will start from June 2020 expectedly. Now, let’s take a look at the new features and changes of the MIUI 12 beta below.
