Xiaomi has announced the exact release date for the MIUI 12.5 branded shell at today’s Mi Fan Open Day event.
Stable MIUI 12.5 will be available for the first batch of smartphones on April 30, 2021. It should be clarified that the “stable” Chinese firmware MIUI 12.5 is already available for five models – Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 11 and Mi 9S. However, these firmwares carry the status of “stable beta”.
This means that the update is available to a very limited number of users without being widely distributed. This is done so that the manufacturer can make sure that there are no serious problems in the firmware and fix them, if any, before releasing an update for all users of any model. And on April 30, the wide distribution of the already finalized version of MIUI 12.5 will begin.
The aforementioned models – Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 11 and Mi 9S will be the first to receive the final MIUI 12.5. And so far, only in China or those users who have Chinese firmware on their smartphones with all their features, including the lack of Google services and applications.
Global MIUI 12.5 will be available at a later date. Xiaomi plans to release stable MIUI 12.5 for the first international models during the second quarter of 2021, but no more precise timing has been announced yet.
