Xiaomi releases Android 12 beta update for Redmi K40 Gaming Edition/Poco F3 GT

Redmi K40 Game MIUI 13 update

Following the Android 12 beta release for Mi 11 smartphones in August, Xiaomi has rolled out the update for Redmi K40 Pro and Pro+ models earlier in September. Now the tech giant is sending the update to another Redmi K40 smartphone.

No, it’s not the base model but the gaming edition also known as Poco F3 GT in India. Since this is a beta update, it is not available for all users, those participating in the closed beta group can download and install the Android 12 build.

Moreover, the firmware can be identified via the build version 21.11.8. If you don’t know, the closed beta builds mainly target the Chinese variants of smartphones, so you won’t find Google Play Services or any pre-installed Google apps inside them.

When compared to the Android 11 based MIUI 12/MIUI 12.5 build, some features might be incomplete or missing in the Android 12-based build. Also, the language options are limited to Chinese and English only.

Before you download:

The update packages are regular recovery flashable zip files, but for beta testers authorized Mi accounts still need to sideload them. The update process of transitioning from one major Android version to another is utterly complex, thus, one should make a backup before they proceed.

Users are suggested to exercise caution before flashing as Xiaomi has also not yet detailed any rollback procedures to downgrade.
