Xiaomi released a unique series of devices by sub-brand Mi Mix way back in 2016. They were one of the first phones that came with nearly a full-screen display and started the trend where people wanted a phone with a high body-to-screen ratio.
The second entry in this series was the Mi Mix 2, which Xiaomi released in 2017. The phone features some of the best hardware and can go toe to toe with any flagship phone from its time. It went on to become one of the most popular Xiaomi phones, and now, the company is planning to update it.
As you might know, Xiaomi is planning to roll out the final build of its MIUI 12 ROM in China by the end of May. A couple of months later, the company might also start updating the supported smartphones outside the Chinese market as well. So, if you happen to own a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, then there is some good news for you. Xiaomi will be updating the Mi Mix 2 during the first phase of the update process.
Of late there were leaked images of MIUI 12 being tested on the Mi Mix 2 model. The news comes just after Poco F1 getting spotted running MIUI 12 Beta skin.
According to anticipations, the first phase of the MIUI 12 rollout will start in early June. The Chinese variants of Mi Mix 2 phones will receive the update by the end of June or in the early days of July.
The global version of the MIUI 12 will follow shortly, maybe in August. So, if you are a Mi Mix 2 user outside China, then you need to wait until August to get the update.
However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all the Mi Mix 2 will get updated in August. Xiaomi might have a different plan for upgrading the MIUI ROM in different countries. So, some people might get an update quite early, while others might need to wait for some time. But in the end, Xiaomi will update all the Mi Mix 2 devices around the globe.
MIUI 12 update might turn out to be the last update for Mi Mix 2. In addition, there are four more popular devices from Xiaomi like Mi 6, Mi 6X, Mi Note 3, and Redmi Note 5 which will be eligible for MIUI 12 marking the end of MIUI build.
