POCO returned to India with great success after a hiatus following the success of its debut product Poco F1. The POCO X3 was one of the first devices released in 2020.
MIUI 12 based on Android 12
POCO has launched the phone in India as an alternative to its Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in other regions. The flagship variant, dubbed the POCO X3 Pro, is also available now.
In case you’re wondering, the POCO X3 Pro debuted with MIUI 12 running Android 11, so it also got MIUI 12.5 before its vanilla variant. Today, the vanilla version is finally getting this update as it recently received the Android 11 update.
MIUI 12.5 update for POCO X3 in India
The MIUI 12.5 update for POCO X3 in India has build number V22.214.171.124.RJGINXM. It contains several features and a July 2021 security patch.
Similar to past OTA updates, it is being rolled out in different batches, so some users will get it before others, and some will have to wait for the same.
POCO will also release an Android 12 based MIUI 13 update sometime in the future, but MIUI 12.5 is the biggest update for a phone so far.
