Throughout 2020, Xiaomi has been quite quick with its software updates for its Mi and Redmi-branded smartphones. The company has efficiently updated many of its older phones with new software updates and brought them to its latest MIUI 12 operating system.
Still, up until now there were some phones that hadn’t been touched by this software update cycle. But a new list leaked on the internet reveals that some of these Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones will finally receive the MIUI 12 update in the coming weeks.
The list appears to be that of the company’s phones in India, as it includes devices such as Poco M2 and Redmi 9, devices sold exclusively in India. According to this list leaked by PiunikaWeb, in the coming days devices such as Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 8, will receive the MIUI 12 update, while Poco M2 and Redmi 9 will be updated to the version by October 15 The report states that the Redmi 8 series will receive the launch of MIUI 12 in India by October 22, while the Redmi 7 series will receive the update by October 25.
If the report ends up being true, it would be good news for millions of Xiaomi and Redmi phone users in India who will see their phones updated with new features before the next holiday season.
Previously, the company had started distributing the Poco M2 Pro version to users in India. The Poco M2 Pro brings some solid specs to the table. The Poco M2 Pro offers a 6.67-inch FHD + 20: 9 display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The body of the phone also features P2i Nano coating, which is resistant to splashes and dust. Under the hood, there’s an Octa-core Snapdragon 720G processor paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The onboard cameras look a lot like the ones we’ve already seen on the Redmi Note 9 Pro. This is because the device has a four-camera setup that not only looks like the Redmi Note 9 Pro from the outside, but is also the same when it comes to hardware. As such, the phone has a 48-megapixel main camera on the back, the same Samsung ISOCELL GM2 seen on the Redmi Note 9 Pro.
