MIUI is arguably one of the finest Android-based skin which is exclusively available for Xiaomi Mi devices. Xiaomi has recently announced their latest version of their MIUI 12 which is still not available for all the Xiaomi devices. Xiaomi follows this unique update mechanism of rolling out OTA’s device and batches-wise. Although a decent number of devices have already received the update, the company’s recent mid-range flagship Xiaomi Mi 9T MIUI 12 Update did not get through all the users.
Xiaomi Mi 9T is launched alongside the Mi 9T Pro in the Chinese and global markets. The same devices are launched in India as Redmi K20 and K20 Pro. Given that Xiaomi announced the rollout of the stable update of MIUI 12 for a number of Xiaomi devices including the Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, K20, and K20 Pro everyone expected the company to push the updates on time. To recall all these devices come under the Everflagship or mid-range flagship category.
Ever since the official confirmation, users of the aforementioned devices are waiting to taste the MIUI 12 sweetness. But sadly, a few of the devices did not receive the update yet. We do not say that the company did not push the updates at all, but it is mostly a limited rollout! Users have reported receiving the update. The reports here include the Indian Mi 9T which is Redmi K20. Also, both K20 Pro and Mi 9T Pro seemingly did receive the update.
Mi 9T MIUI 12 Update
On June 25, we got statements that the Global version of the Xiaomi Mi 9T was getting a stable build of MIUI 12. But still, it looks like the users haven’t been receiving any updates. If you take a look at the community, you can see that a lot of users have been asking the moderators and admins about the status of the MIUI 12. Most of these queries are coming from Bangladesh, India, Singapore, Portugal, and other regions.
Despite all these query’s, the moderators still insist that the MIUI 12 update for the Mi 9T is already pushed out and is due considering the batch-wise release. Feedback Team member Abhinav12321 replied to one of such queries with

Regardless of this, users can still manually update their devices to MIUI 12. As for the Redmi K20/ Mi 9T, custom Android development is good too. So, users can either flash the Chinese Firmware or Global Firmware directly or opt for a custom MIUI 12 ROM like MiRoom, and etc. Winding the story up, Xiaomi might roll the Xiaomi MI 9T MIUI 12 update by the end of this month or in the first weeks of August.
