A Xiaomi chat desk recently said the company plans to finish the MIUI 12 roll-out to supported devices by the end of October. It appears the Chinese tech giant is serious about it.
Xiaomi is now rolling out MIUI 12 Global Stable updates to Redmi Y2/ Redmi S2 devices. Reportedly, the update is being released partially to random users. In other words, you’d have to be extremely lucky to get the MIUI 12 update.

Redmi Y2 is one of the most popular budget devices from Xiaomi. Launched in 2018, the device comes with a Snapdragon 625 SoC, a 5.99-inch LCD, a dual 12MP + 5MP camera setup on the back, and a 16MP selfie camera. Currently, the device sells at Rs 6,299 for the 32GB + 3GB RAM variant and Rs 7,999 for the 64GB + 4GB RAM variant.
Since the MIUI 12 global launch in May, several Xiaomi and Redmi devices have received the MIUI 12 update. However, several in the budget segment and older Xiaomi devices are still waiting for the good news. Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, to name a few.
MIUI 12 comes with several features such as new animations, changes to the UI, new animated live wallpaper, privacy features, a reformed Dark mode, changes to the camera app, and more.
While Xiaomi focuses on finishing the MIUI 12 roll-out to eligible devices, its development team has already started working on the iteration, i.e., MIUI 13. The company has also been testing MIUI 12 based Android 11 on several of its high-end devices.
