MIUI is one of the most popular Android skins around, mainly because it ships on Xiaomi’s devices. The company had introduced the Chinese variant of MIUI 8 back in May when they released the Mi Max phablet, while the global ROM announcement followed last month. The global MIUI 8 ROM was introduced in India on June 30th, and back then Xiaomi said that the stable build will be rolling on on August 16th to a number of devices. Well, while we wait for that to happen, the company has started rolling out the beta version to a number of additional devices, read on.
The MIUI 8 beta ROM (v6.7.5) is now rolling out to Redmi Note (both 3G and 4G variants), Redmi Note Prime, Redmi 2 and Mi Max (32GB model). So, if you have any of these devices, you can download the MIUI 8 beta ROM for them trough the source link below. The MIUI 8 ROM brings a ton of new features to Xiaomi’s devices and is a significant step up compared to MIUI 7.
