Xiaomi announced on its forum that the MIUI 12 update will not be released for Redmi 7, Redmi Y3, Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 smartphones due to ‘compatibility and performance issues’. However, the company has not given detailed information about the problem, which has been seen in these four phones. According to a report by FoneArena, Xiaomi has informed its users about this update through the official Telegram Group.
In May, Xiaomi included Redmi 7, Redmi Y3, Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 in the list of eligible smartphones for the MIUI 12 update. Smartphone models on this list were to receive this update in the second phase. Smartphones like Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Poco F1 and M10 have received MIUI 12 update in the last few months.
The Xiaomi MIUI updates have not been chronologically ordered, as the company has rolled out the MIUI 12 update for models such as the Redmi Y2, which has been launched almost a year before the launch of the Redmi Y3 and Redmi 7. The Redmi 7 smartphone was launched in March last year, while the Redmi Y3 knocked off a month later.
Xiaomi is providing only one major MIUI update for the Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3 smartphones by not releasing the latest MIUI version. Both phones came with MIUI 10, which has received its last major update as MIUI 11. It is different from Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, which came with MIUI 9 and has received MIUI 10 and MIUI 11 updates.
