The  Xiaomi Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A users in India are getting MIUI 12 with a number of new features and improvements, along with the January 2021 Android security patch.

A Twitter user shared screenshots of the same which reveal that the new MIUI had added features like new animation effects, access to the Control Center with a swipe-up right from the lock screen, and the fixation of the screen issue wherein the screen flashes despite being unlocked.

Besides the aforementioned improvements, MIUI 12 brings along improved dark mode 2.0, improved Control Center layout, Super Live Wallpapers, animation effects, floating windows for better multitasking, improved security and privacy, and much more.

The Redmi 8 and the Redmi 8A will get MIUI 12 update in a phased manner. This means that while some users will get it right now, others will have to wait until it starts rolling to everyone in the country. To check for the update, you just have to head to the Settings> Software Update, and see if the MIUI 12 update is available. If it is, then select the Download option and install the update.

Xiaomi smartphones in the global markets received the MIUI 12 update last month.

To recall, the Redmi 9 Prime recently received the stable MIUI 12 update based on Android 10 in India. Redmi 9 Prime users in other regions got the update way before Indian users received it.
