Xiaomi held an online event to announce the rollout of MIUI 12 in India. The upgraded version of the popular user interface brings a new design and optimisations at the kernel level, and this is a big one.

MIUI 12 will likely come without the banned apps pre-installed

A few days before the official rollout, Manu Kumar Jain announced that Xiaomi is bringing a dedicated version of MIUI for Indian users which won't have the apps banned by the Indian Government. It's likely that this is what he was talking about, even though the topic was not touched upon during the event.
