Redmi K20 Pro is now receiving the MIUI 12 update in India. The company has confirmed that the MIUI 12 Global Stable ROM update is rolling out for users in India, just a few days after the Redmi K20 update started receiving it. Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 12 in April this year, and the rollout began in late June. The Redmi K20 series is part of the first batch of phones to receive the MIUI 12 update. Other phones in this first batch include Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10, Mi 10 Youth Edition, Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi 9 Transparent Edition, Mi 9, Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, Redmi K30 Pro, Redmi K30 5G, and Redmi K30.
Xiaomi also confirmed that the Redmi K20 Pro is receiving the MIUI 12 stable update in India. The company had announced via its Twitter handle earlier this month that the MIUI 12 Global Stable ROM has started rolling out for Mi 9T Pro, Mi 9T, Mi 9, Redmi K20 Pro, and Redmi K20. Redmi K20 users in India started receiving the update soon after, and now Redmi K20 Pro users in India have started receiving it too. This update could roll out in a staged manner, and it may be a while before all users are able to see it.
Redmi K20 Pro users should get notified of the update when it arrives, but users should manually check by heading to Settings > About phone > System update and then select Check for update. PunikaWeb has shared a screenshot of the update, and it comes with version number V18.104.22.168.QFKINXM. The size of the update is listed to be 2.3GB.
The changelog suggests that the Redmi K20 Pro MIUI 12 update brings upgrades to system animations, system visuals, and better privacy protection. It brings along a host of new live wallpapers that feature the Mars and Earth. The control center sees a lot of improvements, fixes, and optimisations and there is a system-wide dark mode that is supported in third-party apps as well. The update also brings along June 2020 Android security patch. There is a new Pro mode in Camera and a new Vlog mode for videos.
