MIUI 12 is the latest version of Xiaomi’s mobile operating system based on Android. The company announced it in late April. Since then, it has been updating the eligible devices with weekly beta as well as stable builds worldwide. Since the firm is done updating its flagship and mid-range smartphones, it is now rolling out the update to older and budget handsets. Therefore, Redmi Note 9 Pro launched in March is getting the MIUI 12 update in India only now.
Earlier in August, Redmi Note 9 became the first device in the Redmi Note 9 series to receive MIUI 12 update. Now, after a month, Xiaomi has begun to seed the update to Redmi Note 9 Pro making it the second handset in the series to get this treatment.
That said, the MIUI 12 update for Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with build number V220.127.116.11.QJWINXM and weighs 755MB in size (via PiunikaWeb). It is currently being rolled out to limited users in the country. If there’s no major issue, the rollout will be extended for more users.
Also, this smartphone is sold as Redmi Note 9S outside India. Hence, those variants should also start receiving the update in the coming days.
It is worth noting that Google has released Android 11 but the update for this phone comes with Android 10. Fortunately, the Redmi Note 9 Pro is eligible for the latest version of Android, however, the rollout may take time as Xiaomi is right now working to deliver it to its flagship smartphones
