Xiaomi is now pushing the MIUI 12 update to Redmi Note 5 Pro users in India. The three-year-old smartphone is getting the MIUI V126.96.36.199.PEIMIXM update that weighs around 700MB in size. However, the size of the update differs on the version your Redmi Note 5 Pro is currently. The Note 5 Pro was launched with MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat. Later on, it picked up MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo followed by MIUI 11 based on Android 9 Pie. We are not expecting the MIUI 12 update to be based on Android 10 since the handset already picked up two major Android updates. The MIUI 12 for Redmi Note 5 Pro could be based on Android 9 Pie itself. We don’t have the exact information regarding the Android version at the moment.
