According to Zhang Guoquan, the head of the company’s software, Xiaomi plans to update the flagships Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, as well as Mi MIX 3 and Mi MIX 2S to the new shell. All four devices were presented back in 2018. The devices are powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor. Unfortunately, there is no release date for the firmware yet. Most likely, it will be released in the second half of 2021.
Recall that with the MIUI 12.5 update, Xiaomi smartphones will receive improved animation, new live wallpapers, more system nature sounds, several updated applications, improved privacy, as well as the MIUI + function (not all models support it). It allows you to open applications, read notifications, copy text, and reply to messages from your Windows computer.
