Alongside the Redmi Y2, Xiaomi also unveiled the global version of MIUI 10. The update focuses on four key aspects: speed, design, sounds, and portrait mode.
Xiaomi will be unveiling MIUI 9, the next version of its own skin, later this month alongside the launch of the Redmi 5X. Before that though, the company has confirmed that it would be upgrading the Mi 2 and Mi 2S to MIUI 9 as well.
At an event in Beijing today, Xiaomi launched MIUI 8 – the latest version of its operating system. The latest version of the company’s fork of Android features a new user friendly interface that makes gracious use of colors to make the UI attractive.
For its price, the Xiaomi Mi 5 offers plenty of value for money. That does not mean the phone is not without issues though. Despite running Marshmallow, the phone lacks almost all of the new features introduced by Google with the OS, including app permissions manager and Google Now on Tap.
While MIUI was initially an iOS clone, it has received numerous updates from Xiaomi over the years which has helped it evolved into a skin that offers plethora of customisation options.
