Mi 11X MIUI 12.5 Software Update Tracker [Update: MIUI 12.5 Enhanced roll out resumes in India with hot fix]


Xiaomi launched Mi 11X series last month in India. The Mi 11X series devices run Android 11 with the company’s proprietary skin – MIUI 12 on top. The Mi 11X is a rebranded Redmi K40, which launched back in February in China. The same smartphone is also available as POCO F3 in Global markets. Xiaomi has now started rolling out MIUI 12.5 Stable update for Mi 11X smartphone in India.

Xiaomi doesn’t follow any fixed update frequency for the MIUI Global Stable ROM but on average, the Global Stable ROM is updated once in a couple of months. This post will help our readers in keeping track of MIUI updates for Mi 11X (codename ‘alioth’).

Note that Xiaomi follows a staged rollout and the updates are randomly pushed to a limited number of users and a broader rollout usually takes a few days after the company makes sure there are no critical bugs.
