MIUI 9 Officially Revealed – New Features and Release Dates


MIUI 9

Xiaomi have finally revamped MIUI with an Android 7.0 Nougat-based version of the ROM and some new features. The new OS won’t hit your smartphone right away but let’s go ahead and see what improvements we’ll find!

MIUI 9

MIUI 9 comes with three main new features: Image Search, Smart Assistant and Smart App Launcher. Image Search will allow you to look for an imagine by typing keywords, kinda of what we already have on Google Photos. Then we have the MIUI Smart Assistant which is pretty much the equivalent of “Ok, Google” and Apple’s Siri. Lastly, with the Smart App Launcher you’ll be able to launch an app based on the contents present on your screen.

Xiaomi also optimized their OS overall, with a better haptic feedback, intelligent CPU acceleration and improved thread scheduling. In few words apps should open faster and run better. Plus we’re finally getting the much awaited split screen feature.
