Download MIUI 12 Closed Beta for Xiaomi and Redmi devices

Xiaomi officially announced MIUI 12 (Xiaomi’s custom Android skin) on the launch event of Mi 10 Youth Edition. MIUI 12 brings many new features with visual overhauls, improvements when compared to the MIUI 11 which was released around 6 months ago.

MIUI 12 wallpapers are already available for download, and here you can find the latest MIUI 12 closed beta firmware download links for Xiaomi and Redmi devices.

Last year Xiaomi decided to suspend the global beta roll-out, so, MIUI 12 closed beta ROMs are specially built for Chinese variants. In order to bypass the MIUI beta account whitelisting you have to install the TWRP Recovery to flash the recovery ROMs. Language options in MIUI 12 closed beta ROM are limited to English and Chinese only.
