This particular MIUI 12 update is for the Chinese model Redmi Note 8, although owners of the Global model are expected to receive the relevant update soon.
According to the changelog, this MIUI 12 ROM optimizes the control center with a landscape mode layout, fixes a bug that causes random sounds when the Redmi Note 8 screen turns off, and of course there is a security patch for November. 2020. Owners of the Chinese model Redmi Note 8 can wait to receive the software via OTA or download it from the official forums (update 2.5 GB; fastboot 3.4 GB).
Obviously, other regional variants of Redmi Note 8 owners should think twice before downloading ROMs from China as it can cause operational problems. However, it looks like we won’t have to wait long before a global ROM is available, with forum supermoders saying “Yes, it will come” when someone posts about whether global software is coming soon.
