Xiaomi has been releasing out Android 11-based updates which will bring MIUI 12.5 for its devices. Some smartphones got Android 11 with MIUI 12 long ago, now, the company is rolling out the MIUI 12.5 as an incremental upgrade.
Mi Note 10 Lite and Redmi K30 Ultra are the latest services joining the list of MIUI 12.5 supported smartphones. These two are distinct smartphones. The first is an only China affordable flagship, where the other is a mid-range handset.
REDMI K30 ULTRA
The Redmi K30 Ultra was released together with the Mi 10 Ultra as part of Xiaomi’s 10th-anniversary celebration back in August 2020 last year and remained China-exclusive smartphones. Both devices came with MIUI 12 based on Android 10.
Now, two months before its first anniversary, the device is getting MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11 OS. The update arrives as V220.127.116.11.RJNCXM and brings all the features introduced by MIUI 12.5. There are more controls for privacy and the system now is more optimized and drains fewer resources.
MI NOTE 10 LITE
The Xiaomi Note 10 Lite was released before the K30. For that reason, the device reached the market with older MIUI 11 based on Android 10. This device is the Lite variant for Xiaomi’s first 108MP camera smartphone known as the Mi Note 10. It brings similar specifications with the biggest difference being the 64MP camera replacing the massive shooter. The handset got MIUI 12 update later and also received an underlying Android 11 firmware upgrade earlier this year. Now, Xiaomi is releasing an MIUI 12.5 makeup on the handset. The update is also reaching the global variant of the Mi Note 10 Lite. It carries build number V18.104.22.168.RFNMIXM.
To be noticed is these updates carry “Stable Beta” labels. For that reason, the updates will not reach all users right now. Xiaomi will first roll out to a few select owners in batches and only then slowly releasing to all users once they get a worthy stable UI.
We will hear more about this update in the next coming days. The Mi Note 10 Lite has multiple regional variants (EEA, Turkey, Russia). So its rollout may take a little more time.
