Redmi 7A was one of the best entry-level smartphones at the time. The device uses MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 (Pie) for the first time. Later, Xiaomi updated its software to MIUI11 based on Android 10. Earlier this week, the phone even started receiving MIUI 12 in China. Now, the same update can even be carried out in India.
MIUI 12 was announced in late April 2020. Since then, Xiaomi has been providing this update to qualified devices worldwide.
As a cheap phone of 2018, Redmi 7A is only starting to get this update now. In other words, the MIUI 12 update of the Redmi 7A in India carries the internal version number V126.96.36.199.QCMINXM. Since the rollout is only starting now, the build is currently in a stable Beta stage.
This means that the update only applies to certain users in that country. However, if there are no major issues with this version, it should be available to every user. Otherwise, a new version will be released and will go through the same cycle again.
In addition, we also expect that other variants of this smartphone, such as Global, European Economic Area and Russia, will be updated soon.
In addition, it is worth noting that MIUI 12 is the last major update of Redmi 7A because it does not support Android 11, but MIUI 12.5 may be received later next year.
