Stable MIUI 12.5 update starts rolling out to POCO X3 Pro units in India

Hot on the heels of the MIUI 12.5 update for the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro last month, the latest version of Xiaomi’s custom skin is now making its way to one more device: POCO X3 Pro.

Earlier today, POCO India director Anuj Sharma announced in a tweet that the company has started seeding the stable MIUI 12.5 update to POCO X3 Pro users in India. The update is currently only rolling out to limited units. If no serious bugs or issues are found in the limited rollout, the update will gradually expand to more users.
