Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro users are getting their share of MIUI 12 this week. According to this report, the latest version is available through the Mi Pilot program for now. And it’s worth noting that unlike the regular MIUI 12, this one is based on Android 9 Pie version. That’s because Xiaomi is offering only a single OS update for its Redmi devices.

The version was first made available China, and now Mi Pilot program users in India are also getting to test the new version. And while the software underneath the MIUI 12 is different, you won’t notice that in the design of the interface. It looks similar to the Android 10-based MIUI 12 version that first made its debut few months back. Also Read - Xiaomi Redmi 9 gets listed on Amazon India ahead of August 27 launch

Redmi 6 Pro updated to MIUI 12 was a sure-shot thing. After all, the company had promised the update itself. Having said that, regular users of the device will have to wait a little longer to their over the air (OTA) update. But more importantly, we’re hoping Xiaomi decides to change its one OS update policy in 2020. We’ve already seen Samsung changing its stance towards software, so it’s high time, a market leader like Xiaomi also does. Also Read - Redmi Note 8 Pro MIUI 12 update starts rolling out in India
