Xiaomi has begun distributing the stable MIUI 12 branded user interface to Redmi Note 7 smartphone users outside of China.
Global Redmi Note 7 users have finally received MIUI 12 based on Android 10
Chinese users received MIUI 12 in August. But only now came the turn of users of the international model. The firmware 126.96.36.199.QFGEUXM based on Android 10 has become available over the air for European users. True, it still has the status “Partially released”. This means only about 30% of users received it. After Xiaomi is convinced that there are no major bugs, the widespread expansion will begin.
Recall that the Redmi Note 7 smartphone was among the bestseller smartphones for a long period. In the first six months on the market, sales exceeded 15 million units.
