A couple of weeks ago, MIUI officially confirmed the launch of MIUI 11 and it said that the new system is about to enter the development phase. Xiaomi’s customized operating system is one of the most searched systems in China and this ROM has exceeded 300 million users worldwide. It has experienced 402 weeks of development and update. It is one of the longest-running ROMs in Chinese mobile phones.
From the previous appearance of this system, it will be called “a new and unique OS”. Compared with the MIUI 9 (fast lightning) and MIUI 10 (AI full-screen system), MIUI 11 is expected to be a fully optimized system. The development of the new humanized function brings a more refreshing feeling.
On January 12, a netizen commented on Lei Jun’s official Weibo post saying “Lei, MIUI 11 must be a bit higher on UI design.” Lei Jun responded: “Sure.” Also, Xiaomi officially asked its numerous fans “What are your expectations for MIUI 11 “. A good majority of the responses needed “global night mode feature”, “a smooth and beautiful operation”, and “new icons”. From the MIUI 9 and MIUI 10 released in previous years, each version of the MIUI update iteration is accompanied by different design styles.
According to the information from MIUI forums, the long list of devices planned for a scheduled upgrade to MIUI 11 follows:
Mi Series models
Mi 9, Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, Mi 8 Pro, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi 6, Mi Mix 3, Mi Mix 2s, Mix Mix 2, Mi Mix, Mi Note 3, Mi Note 2 Mi Max 3 Mi Max 2, Mi Max, Mi Play, Mi 6Χ Mi 5c, Mi 5Χ, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus
Redmi Series Models
RedMi Note 7, RedMi Note 6/Pro, RedMi Note 5/Pro, RedMi Note 5Α, RedMi Note 4, RedMi Note 4X, RedMi 6, RedMi 6Α, RedMi 6 Pro, RedMi 5, RedMi 5Α, RedMi 5 Plus, RedMi 4, RedMi 4Α, RedMi 4Χ, RedMi 3s, RedMi 3Χ, RedMi S2
Unfortunately there are some decent Xiaomi smartphones that will not get the long awaited upgrade, such as the Mi 5, Mi 4, Mi 4S, Mi 4C and RedMi 3 Pro, models, since Xiaomi has already ceased providing updates for them. Obviously the aforementioned list is subject to additions in the future, as the first Beta ROMS will soon be delivered to those official beta testers of the Chinese company.
So what are your thoughts? Is your Xiaomi phone eligible for the upgrade?
