Xiaomi is the biggest Chinese smartphone OEM, and the company has showcased a number of new smartphones and various smart gadgets this year. Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is the latest smartphone this China-based company has unveiled, and next to that smartphone, Xiaomi has also announced the new variant of their Android-based skin, MIUI 7. The MIUI 7 includes a number of new features, even though the UI still looks pretty much the same. Xiaomi did, however, introduce a number of fixes under the hood in order to make MIUI 7 a lot faster than its predecessor.
The Chinese version of MIUI 7 was unveiled on August 13th, and the global version arrived on August 19th. That being said, Xiaomi has just released news that MIUI 7 Patchrom has been released, and that MIUI 7 has bene ported to over 70 devices. This is quite staggering if you consider that the UI launched approximately 2 weeks ago. MIUI 7 is ported to Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, LG G2, LG G3, Galaxy S5, Xperia Z3, HTC One M8, HTC One X… and a ton of other devices.

No matter if you like MIUI or not, this achievement is quite commendable. MIUI 7 brings a slew of new features to the platform, including themes and auto-tagging in the gallery, but as already mentioned, the performance bump is the most impressive one. Xiaomi has already showcased MIUI 6 vs MIUI 7, and it’s quite noticeable that MIUI 7 is a more polished version of the OS.
