The world is full of custom Android skins, however, we can take MIUI as the most popular, as there is a huge portion of users who buy Xiaomi smartphones just to experience their software. A few months ago, Xiaomi introduced the MIUI 12 as the latest version of its software. Since then, the company has provided updates to many of its smartphones to bring them to the latest software version. The company even updates some of last year’s devices to Android 10 with MIUI 12 running at the top. Now, the company is update the 2018 Mi 8 to MIUI 12. It is the first smartphone of 2018 that was released with constant update MIUI 12.
Unfortunately, the firmware update of MIUI 12 is limited to the Chinese versions of the device. Even in the country, the update circulates in batches, as only a small fraction of users have received the update so far. It is worth noting that the new firmware comes with version number V220.127.116.11.QEACNXM and weighs 763MB in size. It is worth noting that this phone was the flagship of Xiaomi 2018 with AMOLED screen. For this reason, we expect the new features of MIUI 12, including Super Wallpapers, AOD +, Dark Mode 2.0 and others, to come for this handset.
Xiaomi has a controversial history with recent updates. However, according to the small number of users who have received the update, it runs smoothly without errors so far. We have to wait and see how smooth the update will be once it reaches a global smartphone. Interestingly enough, MIUI 12 is the third MIUI update to reach the handset. The Mi 8 came with MIUI 9 and Android 8.1 Oreo. It was updated to MIUI 10 and 11 and then received Android 10. Now, we expect MIUI 12 to retain its Android 10 database as well as a possible MIUI 13. update. Xiaomi frequently updates its software without changing the underlying version of Android.
