Xiaomi had introduced a new version of its MIUI Android skin yesterday, MIUI 10, and along with it, the company revealed what phones will get the update and when. Please do note that the company introduced a Chinese version of MIUI 10, a global variant will be arriving later this year without China-specific apps and features, though the design will remain the same, of course, as will main features of the software. The devices we’ll mention here will be getting the Chinese version of MIUI 10, though we’re pretty sure that global variants of those models will be getting a global version of MIUI 10 as well (later in the year, though), even though Xiaomi did not specifically confirm that, but that has always been the case when it comes to MIUI updates.
Having said that, Xiaomi has confirmed that the following models will get the update by the end of June: Xiaomi Mi 8, Mi MIX 2S, Mi MIX 2, MIX, Redmi S2, Mi 6X, Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi Note 2, Redmi Note 5, and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The following phones will get the update by the end of July: Xiaomi Mi 5X, Mi 5c, Mi5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 4, Mi 4c, Mi 4S, Mi Note 3, Mi Max 2, Mi Max, Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 4, Redmi 4A, Redmi 4X, Redmi 3S/3X, Redmi Pro, Redmi Note 5A, Redmi Note 4, Redmi Note 4X. And Redmi Note 3. Xiaomi has decided to alter the design of its UI with MIUI 10, so you will be seeing some changes in the UI, as the recents menu has been changed significantly, instead of single horizontal cards that were featured thus far, MIUI 10 brings vertical cards in two columns. UI elements are round now, most of them at least, and the whole UI resembles stock Android a bit more, Android P, to be exact.
In addition to that, MIUI 10 comes with full support for navigation gestures, which arrived to some MIUI 9 builds already. MIUI 10 will brings portrait mode to some older phones with single cameras, as it will be adding bokeh effect using the software. MIUI 10 will also rely far more on AI in order to learn from your usage and predict your next step, so that it can open specific apps faster and improve performance in general.
