MIUI 11 scheduled for Redmi Note 8 Pro in December


Xiaomi released MIUI 11 yesterday in India alongside the Redmi Note 8 Pro and it comes with some pretty big system-wide changes, some even specific to the Indian region. The key elements include a minimalistic design, an Always-On display, a system-wide Dark Mode, wallpaper carousel, and much more.

Now, many of these features were official in China and we know how they work. However, there were India-specific features which are interesting and we need to highlight them here.

Xiaomi introduced a Mint keyboard in collaboration with Bobble with support for 25+ Indic languages. The keyboard also supports translations within transliterations, real-time emoji predictions for Indic languages, cloud sync and much more. There are also, of coures, Quick Replies, which is a sorely missed feature, although we don’t know if it’s specific to India. It allows users to still reply to messages and calls while viewing a video or playing a game.

There’s, of course, an upgrade to stock apps such as Files Manager, Calculator, To-Do, and Docs as well with very interesting new features. Xiaomi also introduced Dynamic Wallpapers which is actually your favourite video clip set as a wallpaper. There are many noteworthy features that you would want to check out, for which we link to the official thread here.

The roadmap for MIUI 11 rollout chart tells us that the entire Redmi Note 7 series along with the POCO F1 and Redmi K20 will get MIUI 11 by the end of this month. What’s peculiar is that the Redmi Note 8 series hasn’t been shipped with this latest version. In fact, the Redmi Note 8 will receive MIUI 11 by the end of next month while the Redmi Note 8 Pro will get it by year-end.

    Chinese phone and products are selling like hot cakes in India yet Indians keep saying Chinese products are of poor quality. Indian is the biggest joke in the world. The only Indian product I have heard of is curry powder.
