Redmi Note 8 got MIUI 13 Update internally

Redmi Note 8 finally received the MIUI 13 update in internal MIUI Beta. This shows us that the Redmi Note 8 will definitely receive the MIUI 13 update.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 with MIUI 10 based on Android 9 in 2019. Redmi Note 8 received Android 10 and Android 11 updates. There was a possibility that Redmi Note 8 could get MIUI 13. China Beta program of Redmi Note 8 was closed on November 24 but it continued to receive internal MIUI Beta versions. Redmi Note 8 still receives internal MIUI Beta today, it has been upgraded to MIUI 13 today along with other devices.

Redmi Note 8 will be one of the devices that will not receive the Android 12 update. However, Android 11 based updates will still continue. Closing the beta program of the Redmi Note 8 series has made users think that the Redmi Note 8 will not receive updates again. But we know that Xiaomi gives its devices (if it is not a prototype device e.g. MIX Fold) at least 3 MIUI updates. Redmi Note 8 Pro will also continue to receive Android 11 based MIUI 13 updates. No such trace of the MIUI 13 update was found for the Redmi Note 8 Pro. But if the Redmi Note 8 will have MIUI 13, so will the Redmi Note 8 Pro too. 

MIUI 13 Build of Redmi Note 8

The version of the first MIUI 13 build of Redmi Note 8 is 21.12.20. We cannot access this build in any way. It accessable for internal beta testers only. It is certain that the Redmi Note 8 will have the MIUI 13 update with this MIUI 13 build.

However, there is one thing we need to know. It is not certain that Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, Mi CC9, Mi CC9 Meitu, Redmi Note 8 Pro and Redmi Note 8 devices will receive the global MIUI 13 update. Just like the old few Xiaomi devices, this update is likely to remain exclusive to China. Even if there are MIUI 13 builds for this device in China, there is no possibility that it will receive the MIUI 13 Global update. It’s entirely up to Xiaomi’s will.

Will Redmi Note 8 get MIUI 13 Global

If Redmi Note 8 will have MIUI 13 update, Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, Mi CC9, Mi CC9 Meitu, Redmi Note 8 Pro are among the devices that will have these updates. These devices will also receive the Android 11-based MIUI 13 update, like the Redmi Note 8. Although there is no clear information about the release date, we think that these devices will be in the third batch. The date may be Q2 2022.

MIUI 13 will be an improved version of MIUI 12.5 Enhanced. MIUI 13 will be the last update for that these devices will receive. This update will eliminate problems such as slowdown on these devices. This update will improve the performance and system stability. Today, someone using the Redmi Note 8 will love their device more thanks to MIUI 13 and will avoid unnecessary money to buy a new device.

MIUI 13 is expected to be introduced in China on December 28. MIUI 13 Global, on the other hand, can be introduced on the day MIUI 13 is introduced in China or 1 month after it is introduced. These devices will be the first to use MIUI 13 Global. You can access the download links from our Telegram channel and MIUI download application when MIUI 13 Global and China released.
