Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro can be considered lucky among older Redmi series as the device is able to receive MIUI 12 update. On the other hand, devices launched after the Redmi Note 5 series like the Redmi 6, Redmi Y3, and some others do not have sufficient hardware requirements for MIUI 12, as announced by the company.

MIUI 12

The Redmi Note and Note 5 Pro were expected to get the MIUI 12 update by November but, it didn’t happen. But now, the global variants of Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro are getting MIUI 12 update via OTA (Over-the-Air). The update is hitting the devices with firmware version MIUI V12.0.2.0.PEIMIXM and weighs about 2.0GB in size.

The update is based on Android 9 Pie and brings new features, redesigned UI, and privacy features. There is still no news from the company about the rollout of updates to Redmi Note 5 series in India.
