MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM makes its debut
Xiaomi has started rolling out MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM to its compatible devices. The roll out commences further to the global launch of its proprietary MIUI skin at an event two weeks back in Delhi. The list of compatible devices for the new MIUI Global ROM includes the Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Redmi S2, and Redmi Note 5 Pro (India)/ Redmi Note 5. The company originally announced the fresh experience for the Mi 6 users as well. However, it has now suspended the rollout for the 2017 flagship. The company started recruiting beta testers for the MIUI 10 Global ROM last week to begin the testing of the new version.
MIUI 10: Designed for Full Screen Experience
MIUI 10 is a breath of fresh air, uplifting the user experience with its upgrades in design, speed, AI and sound.
Responsive and fast
The 14 system optimisations make MIUI 10 even faster. Two more critical system optimisations have been added, namely Lock-free critical path and Codependent prioritizing, which improves the overall responsiveness of MIUI 10 by 10 percent.
Ergonomics at its best
With a series of easy-to-use full screen hand gestures without the virtual buttons, along with new features such as more content in the tiled taskbar and improved swiping gestures (up and down for switching tasks, sideways to end current task), users will be delighted at the increase in their multitasking efficiency.
Users will seamlessly be able to switch to Full screen gestures. Besides, MIUI 10 will provide a much more productive experience with a completely redesigned recent apps menu showing up to 5 apps in one screen.
Single-lens portrait photos
Users of MIUI 10-supported Xiaomi smartphones with single cameras will be delighted to know that MIUI 10 will bring its popular AI Portrait photos to these devices, which means users will be able to take portrait shots without having a dual-lens camera.
In a nutshell, portrait photos will be possible on both, single- and dual-rear camera phones running MIUI 10.
Rediscover the sounds of nature
MIUI 10 brings with it a completely new system of sounds. From notifications, to audio feedback and ambient sounds from an app like the timer — MIUI 10 aims to deliver more signal than noise. MIUI is also designed in a way that will reduce the aural clutter.
Customized for India
MIUI 10 has been customized keeping in mind its large user base in India. Subtle features like the camera app doubling up as a Paytm QR code scanner, a local service page in the in-built browser with full support for PWA (progressive web apps), and the content-rich libraries of Mi Music and Mi Video ensure a great, entertaining and an ergonomic experience. MIUI 10 adds a quick menu tab to all business messages, which allows users to explore more about the service with one tap.
While the latest MIUI 10 Global Beta version is heading to a handful of smartphones at the initial stage, Xiaomi has plans to bring the new ROM to most of its handsets. The stable builds of the latest MIUI skin will also start rolling out in September.
Meanwhile, if you have any of the compatible devices running the latest MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM, and have registered for the Global Beta ROM, you can check for the latest MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM by going to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates. It can also be downloaded through the Updater app, if you’re already running the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM. Those looking to update directly from stable to beta will need to wait for Xiaomi to provide ROM download links so that these builds can be flashed via the Fastboot method.
