As mobile tech lovers, we get excited when we hear news about our handset getting any sort of update. From a simple bug fix, to a major overhaul of the UI, just about anything can get our nerves jumping. If you are an owner of a MI3 or a MI4, get ready to squeal because the update you have been waiting for is finally here. On August 16th Xiaomi will be launching their new refreshed UI called MIUI 6. The announcement was made in the MIUI forums along side a contest to win MiCredits. The UI update will be based on Googles Android OS Kitkat, which has folks really excited. “Visually stunning, stunningly simple,” are the words written under a large colorful 6 used for the advertisement.

The new Android firmware promise’s a lot of thing such as optimization of functions and user interface, all of the content integrated, an improved ecosystem and of course, internet services. Not only will the MIUI 6 firmware be available for Xiaomi users, the companies states that the MIUI 6 update will be available for other brands as well. So brands such as LG, Samsung, and HTC, Motorola, and Oppo are just a few that will be able to rock the refreshed user interface.

With a much cleaner look, it is no doubt that people will fall in love with MIUI 6. But what was wrong with the last UI that the MI3 and MI4 had? Well for starters, users were complaining about how the interface was too cluttered. A cluttered screen is a big problem if you are utilizing any smartphone. Other than the cluttered screen, the colorful, childish looks of the UI gave users more to complain about. In other words, the UI made the MI4 look like a childs toy. Now with MIUI 6 on the way, the cluttered screen and childish looks will be done away with and replaced with are more matured, rich UI that is clean and refreshing to stare at.

After the announcement of the launch event for MIUI 6, Xiaomi is asking for beta testers to try out the new UI and give feedback on the redesigned look. If you are an active member in the MIUI forums, than this would be a great option for you, as you can help make MIUI 6 more stronger and better.
