Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 12 in their home country more than a month ago. Since then, the company has been conducting a closed beta testing of its latest custom Android skin on a number of Mi and Redmi smartphones in China, but those builds don’t come with Google Play Services or any pre-installed Google apps. The global version of MIUI 12 was announced on May 19, while Xiaomi also published a tentative roadmap regarding the update rollout plan. The Mi 9, Redmi K20/Mi 9T, and the Redmi K20 Pro/Mi 9T Pro are the front liners, as these phones are scheduled to receive the stable OTA sometime in June 2020.

MIUI 12 Global Rollout Schedule

The MIUI global beta program doesn’t exist anymore, so the OEM started recruiting volunteers through the “Mi Pilot” initiative to evaluate the quality of the freshly baked MIUI 12 builds before the broadscale rollout. The first set of “beta stable” updates for the round one devices are now live, and you can download the appropriate package for your model using the following links. It is worth mentioning that the builds assigned for the Mi Pilot group may or may not end up as the final stable release, so stay away from flashing them on your daily driver.

Unlike the Chinese closed beta builds, the global beta stable MIUI 12 packages linked below are multilingual. Xiaomi even ships them with a full set of Google services, which makes them somewhat equivalent to the existing MIUI 12-based Xiaomi.EU ROM. An authorized Mi Account might still be required to sideload them, but users can bypass that restriction by flashing via TWRP.

Once Xiaomi deems these builds to be stable enough, it will flip a server-side switch that will remove the need for an “Authorized Mi Account” to flash the build. Alternatively, they could also release new updates with bug fixes.
