Despite that MIUI 13 announcement is looming on the horizon, Xiaomi is still updating its smartphones to MIUI 12.5. Now the turn has come to the global version of Poco X3 NFC, and the company has released an update with the number “MIUI 188.8.131.52 RJGMIXM”. The build weighs 2.4GB and includes the July security patch.

This is a stable beta, which means that the update will be sent out randomly at first, pending full public rollout in the coming weeks. Therefore, either wait until the update arrives “by air” or install it using these links: Recovery | OTA
MIUI 12.5 will arrive to the POCO F3 as well. The update applies to European phone models with software version numbers “V184.108.40.206.RKHEUXM” and “V220.127.116.11.RKHRUXM”. Since the build numbers are identical, they are probably the same update. But unlike the update for the POCO X3 NFC, this smartphone received the June security patch, not the July security patch.
