Xiaomi cancels MIUI 12 on 4 older smartphones

Xiaomi footnote

MIUI 12 is the latest version of user interface that Xiaomi uses over Android. This has already landed on various devices, having been announced for more than 40 smartphones from Xiaomi, POCO and Redmi globally in May this year.

The Chinese manufacturer has now canceled this update for four older terminals. These were on the official list of the brand, but have now been removed in a subtle way, with a footnote.

Xiaomi smartphones with MIUI 12 canceled:

  • Redmi Y3
  • Redmi 7
  • Redmi 6A
  • Redmi 6

Xiaomi claims lack of compatibility and performance issues

According to the footnote published by Xiaomi, these smartphones previously included in the calendar “will not be upgraded to MIUI 12 due to compatibility and performance issues”.

Remember that the equipment was placed on the official list, which gave them the guarantee of receiving the update. For this reason, the owners of these will not be happy to know that, after this time, they will have lost that support of the brand.

This means that these devices, focused on the low-cost segment, are only tailored to receive a major update from the brand. Redmi Y3 was released in April 2019 with Android 9.0, and has not yet received Android 10. The same is true with Redmi 7, launched in March of the same year.

Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A are even older models, from June 2018. They hit the market with Android 8.1. Although the problems associated with receiving a theoretically heavy update are understood, it is a pity that this return would leave many users satisfied.
