Finally the most awaited Custom android Skin is here – Xiaomi MIUI 12 for Xiaomi devices. The MIUI 12 Skin is expected to bring along a number of improvements in stability and cool features. Today, Xiaomi announced the Launch date of MIUI 12 which is May 19.
A week ago, Xiaomi initiated the closed beta for Chinese Xiaomi and Redmi devices. And today, it was supposed to release the Open beta for all Xiaomi devices that were eligible. However, here’s the sad part – Xiaomi has been facing some critical stability issues in releasing Open beta for these devices and hence, it’s made the decision of releasing the update in phases just like it did with Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 10 Update.
Just recently, the official MIUI 12 Weibo Handle announced that MIUI 12 Developer version will go live for different Xiaomi devices one after the other for 32 hours.
This is what the announcement reads –
Due to solving the bug affecting stability, the public beta of some models development version is expected to be released on 5.9
