Xiaomi took the wraps off its MIUI 10 skin based on Android Oreo just yesterday. However, that was the debut of the Chinese ROM. Now, it seems the company plans to quickly follow through on the global ROM. Xiaomi India’s video teaser posted just today clearly indicates that MIUI 10 is coming. However, there’s no ETA. Also, Xiaomi India Head, Manu Kumar Jain shared the same news on his Twitter handle confirming the upcoming rollout.
Now, we’re aware that the company launched MIUI 9 last year at the Redmi Y1 event internationally. Putting two and two together, we can hope to see MIUI 10 at the launch of Redmi Y2 aka Redmi S2. Speaking of which, the Redmi S2 is launching soon on June 7th and we’ve also just learnt that it is Amazon exclusive.
