Redmi K40 Gaming receives Xiaomi MIUI 13 (Android 12) software update

Redmi K40 Game MIUI 13 update

Redmi K40 Gaming smartphone users have begun collecting the MIUI 13 software built upon Android 12 OS. The users are grabbing the new MIUI interface update in China through the OTA (over the air) distribution. As it is an OTA update, we can expect to face some delay in the access of the software to the eligible units in the country.


Additionally, on the other hand, Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G users are also receiving the same update via OTA in the same region. Meanwhile, both the devices are also getting a new security patch for a renovation in the security system. Thus, Xiaomi has handed over a bunch of rewards for Redmi device users in China.
