Xiaomi has been rolling out MIUI 12 stable update for the eligible devices for the past few weeks, in addition to releasing weekly beta builds. The company has been also updating its last year’s budget smartphones to Android 10 at the same time. Joining the list, Mi 8 becomes the first 2018 smartphone to get MIUI 12 stable update.
Like with every other Xiaomi/Redmi smartphone, the MIUI 12 stable update for Mi 8 is initially limited to China. Even in this region, the update is being seeded out in batches as only a handful of users have received it so far.
The update comes with build number V126.96.36.199.QEACNXM and weighs 763MB in size. Since this handset was the company’s flagship smartphone of 2018, we expect it to get all the new features of MIUI 12 including Super Wallpapers, AOD+, Dark Mode 2.0, and others.
That said, if this build receives positive feedback from the limited users who received it, the company will roll out it to more users. Only then, we can expect Xiaomi to push the update to the global versions of the device.
It is worth noting that MIUI 12 is the third MIUI update for the Mi 8 after MIUI 10 and MIUI 11. This handset launched with MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo. Currently, it runs Android 10 and will not receive any platform update but may get MIUI 13.
