Xiaomi has hosted an online-only press conference today in order to announce a global version of MIUI 12. MIUI 12 originally launched last month in China, and the global variant is not much different.
It will not contain some China-specific features, and it will come with Google services pre-installed. That's pretty much it as far as differences are concerned, though.
Considering that all the important details were published last month, many people were only waiting for the rollout schedule for global Xiaomi smartphones. Well, that information is now here.
Global MIUI 12 build is coming to a ton of Xiaomi, Redmi & POCO devices
The first round of phones will start getting MIUI 12 at the end of June. Those phones include the Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, Redmi K20, and Redmi K20 Pro.
The rest of the device will start getting it as part of round two, but we're not sure when exactly. It will be later this year, after June, of course. It could be July or August, perhaps.
Quite a few devices are listed in round two, by the way. We'll list all of those devices down below, starting with Xiaomi phones, then moving to Redmi and POCO devices.
