Xiaomi has begun to distribute the long-awaited proprietary MIUI 12 shell to Redmi Note 5 smartphones (review).
Note that the last, third stage of MIUI 12 distribution began in September 2020. The company planned to complete the initial distribution of the proprietary MIUI 12 shell for all devices with its support by the end of October, and users of the “left out” models almost lost hope.
However, MIUI 12 stable arrived on Redmi Note 5 only now in January. Global firmware 18.104.22.168.PEIMIXM has a size of 697 MB and is based on the “ancient” operating system Android 9 Pie, but provides all the innovations of MIUI 12, with the exception of “super wallpapers”.
