Xiaomi's latest MIUI 10 ROM comes to select devices

Xiaomi recently launched the global beta version of its next proprietary forked smartphone UI, the MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM.

Now the company has started rolling out the latest MIUI skin to select compatible devices including the Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Redmi S2, and Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Redmi Note 5.

Beta testers can experience MIUI 10 before its official release.

The update not coming to Mi 6

Originally, Xiaomi was supposed to bring the MIUI 10 to the Mi 6 as well, but the roll out on the 2017 flagship has been suspended for unknown reasons. One possibility is that Xiaomi is fixing bugs on older devices before releasing the update.

New features

MIUI 10 has new system apps like Weather and Calendar

A revamped user experience with focus on AI

One of the big changes in MIUI 10 is the support for single-camera portrait mode which will allow users to take pictures with bokeh effect using a single rear camera. To make the feature work, Xiaomi reportedly built an AI algorithm using 1,00,000 photos.

The stable build of the ROM will launch in September

The MIUI 10 Global ROM also improves speed, design, and sound alerts and de-clutters the notification panel.

It includes a new Recents apps menu which uses a card-like interface.

The update comes with full-screen display gestures like the iPhone X, and in tune with 18:9 display phones, is optimized for full-screen phones.

The new ROM increases the overall smoothness of a device by 10%.

Lighter and faster

"In MIUI 10, you'll probably spend zero seconds waiting for the app to load in most cases and go directly to the start page after tapping the icon without having to look at the loading progress bar," the company said.

Early bird experience
