Lately, Xiaomi has been rolling out MIUI 12 update to its older affordable smartphones. The Redmi 7A began to receive this update recently and now, its successor Redmi 8A along with Redmi 8 has also started getting it. The update is live for multiple regional variants of these handsets at the same time.
The Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A launched with MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 (Pie) just like the Redmi 7A. These smartphones were later updated to both MIUI 11 and Android 10. Now, they have begun to receive MIUI 12 as well.
That said, the MIUI 12 update is currently live for the following regional variants of Redmi 8.
- Global: V220.127.116.11.QCNMIXM

- China: V126.96.36.199.QCPCNXM
- EEA: V188.8.131.52.QCPEUXM
All the above-mentioned builds are in the Stable Beta phase except for the one meant for Redmi 8 Global variant. Because the update went live for this version in December itself. Also, we expect more regional variants to get the update, especially India, in the near future.
The MIUI 12 is the last major update for Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A. These devices may receive MIUI 12.5 later this year but they will be not getting Android 11.
