Xiaomi‘s MIUI can be based on a number of different regions, including Global, China, and others. Knowing the region is essential if you intend to manually update your device.
Some apps or settings may be unavailable, and you may get updates sooner or later than users in other regions, depending on the region of your MIUI ROM. If you want to manually update a Xiaomi phone, you’ll need to find out which region the firmware serves as a foundation for.
Here are the steps to follow for checking what region your MIUI ROM is based on!
How to find the MIUI region from the MIUI version
- Open your settings.
- Tap on “About phone”.
- Check the MIUI version section
The letter combination in your MIUI version line (In our example, it’s ‘TR’ [Turkey].), identifies the region the firmware is based on.
