The global MIUI 9 rollout continues with Xiaomi Redmi 3s and Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime getting the Nightly update. The firmware version is MIUI V18.104.22.168.MALMIEK and is 376 MB in size and is based on Android Marshmallow with an April 2017 security patch.
The MIUI 9 global rollout continues with Xiaomi Mi Max and its India-exclusive variant the Xiaomi Mi Max Prime. The upgrade version is V22.214.171.124.NBCMIEI for the Mi Max and is around 1.5 GB in size. The Prime version should get V126.96.36.199.NBDMIEI but the package is essentially the same.
The start of the rollout of the global MIUI 9 was announced by Xiaomi today. Devices that will get the UI early November will be the Redmi Note 4, Mi Mix 2, Mi Max 2 and the Redmi Y1 series, which just went official.
MIUI 9 was announced along with the Xiaomi Mi 5X last week and its official rollout is starting in a week. The first two phones to get it are the Xiaomi Mi 6 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X and they will only have to wait until August 11.
Today is the day that Xiaomi finally makes MIUI 9 and the Xiaomi Mi 5X official. The Mi 5X has a 5.5" 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 625 with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a dual 12MP camera on the back.
There are at least 5 million people who are still using their Xiaomi Mi 2/2S. Xiaomi is looking to make sure those folks get stepped up to the latest version of MIUI, which is MIUI 9, in a forthcoming update. This will bring the phones to Android 7.0 Nougat.
MIUI 9 is said to be coming in the second half of this year, but a new rumor talks about two big features that it could have. One is the split-screen feature that Google introduced previously, and another is a picture-in-picture mode that is said to be coming with Android O.
Back in November, we started hearing about MIUI 9 being based on Android 7.0 Nougat, but that is all we have heard about it since then. Today, Xiaomi released an image on the internet that claims they'll be unveiling MIUI 9 tomorrow (and they promise it is not an April Fools joke).
Two images have appeared showing what appears to be the settings screen from MIUI 9. Xiaomi has been rumored to be working on the latest version of its software, but two screenshots seemingly confirm its existence.
Xiaomi's MIUI ROMs have been based on KitKat and Lollipop but a new update from the developers show they're getting ready to move forward.
Xiaomi has recently confirmed that MIUI v9 will start its development phase soon and this could be the first MIUI ROM that is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
