After rolling out a stable MIUI 12 update for several Redmi, Mi, and POCO smartphones over the last month, Xiaomi is now bringing the long-due update to its last year’s budget smartphones: the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S. Although the Redmi Note 7/7S users in other regions, including Europe and Russia, have already received their MIUI 12 update, the Indian units were still waiting for their turn. That changes today, however, as the company has finally started rolling out the stable MIUI 12 update to these devices in India.
The update carries software version v220.127.116.11.QFGINXM and is based on Android 10. The Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S are identical phones, with the only real difference between the two being the primary camera sensor — 12MP Vs. 48MP, respectively. They also share the same firmware packages as well as a common code-name (lavender). As expected, the update packs in all the standard MIUI 12 features, including a new Control Centre, improved Dark mode, new animations, enhanced privacy protection, and a whole lot more.
The stable update has begun hitting the Indian Redmi Note 7/7S units. The update was first spotted around November 23, but the rollout at that time was under the “stable beta” branch. Today, the fastboot ROM has been made available, indicating that the ROM is stable enough to be rolled out to all users in the region.
You can try heading to Settings > About Phone > MIUI version and click on the “CHECK FOR UPDATES” button to see if it’s available for you. If you don’t want to wait, you can also update your phone manually by downloading the Recovery ROM zip or Fastboot ROM package from the below link.
