But the very strange thing, that these wallpapers are not available even for most Xiaomi or Redmi phones, even those that received the official MIUI 12 update!
Yes, phones like Redmi K20 Pro or Poco F1 although they have got the latest update, they have not officially supported the new MIUI Super wallpapers. Therefore, as of the time these words are written, there are very few Xiaomi phones that actually support these new kind of wallpapers.
