Xiaomi has done a pretty amazing job when it comes to sticking to its proposed roadmap for the rollout of its latest MIUI 11 update. The company has already launched the update for almost all its devices and the ones that are pegged to receive the same in the month of December have also started to get the update way ahead of time. As it turns out, the users of the recently launched Redmi Note 8 Pro have already started receiving the stable beta build of MIUI 11. Before the users in India got it, the ones in China and Indonesia already started getting it. In case you own a Redmi Note 8 Pro in India (and if you have enrolled for the beta program), chances are that you would get MIUI 11 based on Android 9 Pie in the coming days if you haven’t received it yet.
