In July, Redmi Note 9 alias Redmi 10X 4G was launched with Android 11 based MIUI 12.5. The update is now available one month later for all but one of the regional versions of the device. Consider the state of this smartphone’s recent system upgrade.
In February, the Redmi 10X 4G in China has access to Android 11. But only now does Redmi Note 9 receive the foreign edition of this handset last year with MIUI 12.5.
In the first weeks after the original Redmi 10X 4G debuted for China, the Indian version of the Redmi Note 9 received the MiUI 12.5 upgrade based on Android 11. Xiaomi updated more regional variations of the smartphone in the following weeks.
Currently, the MIUI 12.5 update Redmi Note 9 (Redmi 10X 4G) for the following regional phone versions is now available live.
- China – V18.104.22.168.RJOCNXM
- India – V22.214.171.124.RJOINXM
- Global – V126.96.36.199.RJOMIXM
- Turkey – V188.8.131.52.RJOTRXM
- Indonesia – V184.108.40.206.RJOIDXM
- Russia – V220.127.116.11.RJORUXM
- EEA – V18.104.22.168.RJOEUXM
“Taiwan” is still the sole regional variation that has been updated. We believe the smartphone version will receive the upgrade in the next few days as well.
That said, the newest software update is routed in batches even for the above-mentioned versions. The update will take a while to reach each user in plain language.
