Xiaomi has been on a roll this year with back-to-back smartphone releases, at least in India. It recently announced its Redmi 6 series of smartphones in India, consisting of the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A and the Redmi 6 Pro. The three smartphones run on MIUI 9.7 and are being shipped with the promise of being updated to MIUI 10. Meanwhile, in China, the company has announced the Android Pie based MIUI 10 update, as an Insider Beta for its Mi 8 smartphone. The news comes via the company’s official Twitter account and it also states that it will be globally rolled out for users at a later date. The MIUI 10 was officially announced back in May, along with the Mi 8 series of devices in China.
XIaomi has put more emphasis on the use of AI with the new operating system. It features a refreshed recent screen, which is aimed at maximising screen space and it also supports full-screen display gesture, swipe to delete tasks and more. Additionally, MIUI 10 itself helps the user to capture AI portraits with bokeh effects on both single and dual camera smartphones. Using Machine Learning, MIUI 10 is said to reduce app load times to “zero” by studying and anticipating a user’s actions and it can also be used for controlling smart home devices.
