Xiaomi, a week after the introduction of Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 for Redmi Note 9 5G in China, has published a fresh firmware for the worldwide version of the smartphone – Redmi Note 9T.
Android 11 is the new talk of the town, at least among those who follow every new version, beta or stable, with bated breath. Many Xiaomi fans are naturally curious as to if and when their devices will receive the Android 11 upgrade.
The Redmi Note 9T was released earlier this year in foreign regions as a renamed Redmi Note 9 5G. MIUI 12 was released with the device, which is based on Android 10. The handset is currently receiving the MIUI 12.5 upgrade based on Android 11 months after its debut.
The new MIUI 12.5 update for the Redmi Note 9 5G / Redmi Note 9T is a stable version based on Android 11. MIUI 126.96.36.199 RJECNXM is the version number, and it weighs in at 2.7GB. The update includes optimization and bug fixes, with Xiaomi claiming a 25% reduction in power consumption and background memory utilization. They’ve also included the ability to delete several system apps, although the Google framework has been deactivated for Chinese ROM users in this version.
Xiaomi began pushing out the MIUI 12.5 upgrade for the Redmi Note 9 5G based on Android 11 last week. The Redmi Note 9T, the international version of this gadget, is now up for review. V188.8.131.52.RJEEUXM and V184.108.40.206.RJEMIXM are the names of the European and global firmware versions, respectively.
The MIUI 12.5 shell reduces the utilization of the device’s system memory by 35 percent and reduces the smartphone’s battery usage by 25 percent. MIUI 12.5 also includes new super wallpapers, new noises for system upgrades, and improvements to the vibration system, among other things.
The firmware has a Stable Beta prefix, indicating that only a small number of people have received it thus far. If the software does not have any defects, the system will be made available to the general public in the near future.
The changelog is usual in this case. The smartphone was updated to Android 11 and gained all of MIUI 12.5’s important features. This is a new UI with enhanced animation, new live wallpapers, better privacy options, and much more.
The Redmi Note 9T features a 6.53-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, a 13-megapixel front camera, and a 48-megapixel primary camera, and is powered by the Density 800U single-chip technology. It has dual speakers, a side fingerprint scanner, and a 5000mAh battery with 18W charging capabilities.
Both of the software builds described above are in the ‘Stable Beta’ stage. This means they’re only available to a limited few users and are seeded out in batches.
In any case, in the coming weeks, all owners of the Redmi Note 9T EEA and Global variants should receive the MIUI 12.5 based on the Android 11 update. The remaining Russian and Taiwanese handsets will almost definitely receive a similar makeover in the near future.
Xiaomi has begun rolling out Android 11 to the Mi 9T. The flagship killer is getting an OS upgrade right now, but only in global model form. However, the OTA does not provide MIUI 12.5, so owners will have to wait a little longer. The update is roughly 2.4 GB in size.
