Xiaomi officially announced the MIUI 12 custom ROM on April 27 during the Mi 10 Youth launch event. Less than 10 days after, the company has now launched the MIUI 12 Pilot Testing Program for the Redmi K20 Series and it is global recruitment.
The Redmi K20 series was listed among the first batch of models to get MIUI 12 when it was first announced. The recruitment is open to users of the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro. Both models make up the K20 series released last year as Redmi’s first flagship smartphones. We expect the company to expand the list of eligible devices in the coming weeks.
Interested owners of the K20 models have until May 14, 9 PM IST to apply for the pilot testing program. Since this is for a beta version, expect the software to contain bugs. So, it isn’t advisable to install on your primary device.
The new MIUI 12 brings Dark Mode 2.0, revamped control centre, battery app, file manager, Notes app, calendar app, and more. It also comes with new themes, Always on Display and several features.
Xiaomi is yet roll out the global version of MIUI 12, but that may likely be done on May 8 when it takes the centre stage in India to unveil the Mi 10 and other products.
