Since the update is in its beta version, it is only available to a few people who will test it out for bugs and problems. In case no notable issues are spotted, the same build will be made available to more users. After a successful run, the company will offer a wider rollout.

The update comes with build number V12.0.1.0.QJCMIXM and is expected to bring a redesigned interface, new animations, and a host of new features to Redmi 9 global variant. It could also bring along the latest Android security patch. Those who want to test the version are advised to backup their data before beginning the installation process. It is possible that the beta update could brick the handset.

MIUI 12 was announced in April this year. Xiaomi said that the user interface gets a new experience with reworked system-wide animations and visualisations. Highlights of MIUI 12 include an improved system-wide Dark Mode that also covers third-party apps, an ultra-battery-saver mode, and an App Drawer that sorts apps by categories. Users should see all these changes in the Redmi 9 global variant after a wider rollout.

The Redmi 9 model sold in India shouldn't be confused with the global model of the same name. In India, the global variant of Redmi 9 is sold as Redmi 9 Prime. The Indian version of Redmi 9 is actually a tweaked Redmi 9C.
