All Xiaomi that will receive Android 11 with MIUI 12 and when they will
Xiaomi started this year in style by launching the twelfth version of its customization layer, MIUI, which brought us a handful of interesting news. And it is that MIUI 12 came from the hand of an enhanced system-wide dark mode, AI-assisted calling features, a dynamic Always-on Display mode, a revamped visual design, various tweaks to system animations, and much-needed privacy fixes. At this point, Xiaomi has already sent the update to MIUI 12 to all the mobiles that entered the official update list.

But note that some have it available in a “stable beta” form, which means that the update will not appear when you search for it, but you must download it in the beta version.
