It seems Xiaomi is now rolling out MIUI 12 for Redmi Note 9 Pro India Variant. The MIUI 12 was announced in late April this year.

We may expect MIUI 12 for Redmi Note 9S soon since its counterpart is receiving the update.

The reason behind this logic came the title of the smartphone, flagship. If your smartphone is flagship, it is safe to say that you get the latest update quicker than mid-range.
Secondly, it doesn’t have a smartphone China ROM counterpart. Since we all know that it is easier to make an update through China ROMs, and this ROM gets the first update than that of Global ROMs. This is thanks to no certification needed from Google.

Mainly because their name might put in jeopardy in the event there are some malicious content. Although, it is given that Xiaomi doesn’t have that kind of intent. Both companies are just performing first security protocol, which is certifying, analyzing, and inspecting a content or data to avoid financial
