A few weeks after unveiling the international variant of MIUI 10, Xiaomi has released the first beta of the ROM for some of its compatible devices. The latest release of MIUI further improves system performance uses AI to bring features like portrait mode to its older devices with a single camera.
Other notable new features in MIUI 10 include Progressive Web App support, improved Mi Browser with a new startup page, improved App Vault, and more. For now, Xiaomi is rolling out the first beta of global MIUI 10 for the Redmi S2, Redmi Note 5/Pro, Mi Mix 2/2S, and the Mi 6.
Since this is a beta release, you must have already signed up as a beta tester with Xiaomi to be eligible to receive the MIUI 10 OTA update on your device. If not, you will need your device to be rooted with TWRP installed so that you can flash the MIUI 10 global beta on your device. You can download the ROM from here.
While MIUI 10 brings a number of improvements and enhancements, it does not bump the Android version to Oreo on some of Xiaomi older devices. While this might disappoint many, this allows Xiaomi to update its older devices to the latest release of MIUI despite chipset manufacturers long dropping support for their chips.
