There are some Xiaomi smartphones that still haven’t updated to MIUI 12, including the Redmi 9, Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 9 Pro. It is now known when these models will receive the firmware.
This is a global market. For example, the Redmi Note 9 Pro has already received the MIUI 12 update, but it is targeted at the Indian market, and the smartphone versions for India and the global market are different. Also, Redmi 9 received a stable beta version 18.104.22.168.QJCCNXM back in July, but only for China.
While Xiaomi has not made any official announcement about the update, the MIUI 12 release date has been confirmed as a result of a conversation between the user and a Xiaomi UK support representative. Here they promised that the rollout of the update for Redmi 9, Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 9 Pro will begin on October 20.
Also, the support representative clearly stated that the update for Redmi 9 will start for global, Indian, European, Russian and other units in October 2020. But Android 11 will have to wait until February 2021.
