Xiaomi sub-brand Poco has started rolling out its first ever update to for Indian users. The update to MIUI 12 is now going out to units sold in the subcontinent, with a bunch of reports on Twitter confirming the receipt of the new software.
The new build number is MIUI 18.104.22.168,QGHINXM, and it arrives over-the-air as a 813 MB download. The changelog says it’s “stable”, but it’s unclear if this is just a soak test or a more general rollout. Whatever the case, at least some people received it, so it’s clearly on the way for all Poco X2 units, even if it might take a while before it arrives on every single one of them.
MIUI 12 brings new system animations, with a “physically based” engine with “advanced architecture” that will refresh your device’s look and feel. Additionally, dynamic window technology “takes switching screen orientation to a new level”. The new version of Xiaomi’s skin also has a brand new visual design, with magazine-level layouts that “bring important things into the spotlight and make content structure clear”.
Hopefully this isn’t just a fluke and won’t be constrained to a few lucky Poco X2 owners for long.
