The Redmi Note series is Xiaomi’s most popular offering around the world. The series is critically acclaimed for its excellent specs at ridiculously low prices.
So every new iteration to date has sold like hot cakes. Their upcoming Redmi Note 10 series has already generated a lot of hype, even without the brand’s publicity about it except through their social media handles.
So yes, the show is getting a lot of well-deserved love. And a large number of units sold always translates into more people eagerly awaiting new software updates.
This is exactly what is happening with the Redmi Note 9, also known as the Redmi 10X 4G in China. The device is still running MIUI 12 based on Android 10 and users have been eagerly awaiting the next big update.
Fortunately, there is now new news available arising from a recent comment left by a moderator on the Mi community.
From what we know, Android 11 will arrive first, followed by the MIUI 12.5 update. We don’t have an ETA. MIUI 12.5 is expected to be rolled out in Q2 2021 (starting with flagships).
As stated above, the Redmi Note 9 will first receive the Android 11 update, still based on MIUI 12, after which MIUI 12.5 will be rolled out in the second quarter of 2021.
Of course, the rollout will start with the flagships and the new Redmi Note 10 series. Therefore, MIUI 12.5 should be available for the Redmi Note 9 perhaps towards the end of the second quarter of 2021.
Hopefully, the MIUI 12.5 update fixes the series of performance issues with the device as well. We previously highlighted how Xiaomi temporarily disabled some unnecessary features due to performance issues with the latest update.
This all happens when the Redmi 10X 4G has already updated to Android 11 stable in China. The device, as already mentioned, is the Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 9.
Nonetheless, there isn’t much to do now other than wait for the next MIUI 12 update based on Android 11 for the Redmi Note 9. So be sure to keep an eye out for our dedicated MIUI update trackers. 12.5 and Xiaomi Android 11 to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
