Xiaomi is already the second largest smartphone selling brand in India and also Redmi Note 4 is the most sold out smartphone in India, reports believe. Well, I do have a lot of trust in these reports as Xiaomi India is really doing well these days and approximately every second guy does have the Redmi Note 4 due to its budget range price tag and mid range specifications.
But now Xiaomi India is all set for the global state version of its MIUI 9 Operating System in India on 2nd November. The recently announced MIUI India Twitter handle revealed the bit in a tweet and said, "We listened to your requests. Global MIUI 9 is coming to India on November 2. Are you excited?"
Features of MIUI 9:
Some of the new features of MIUI 9 include:
faster app load times
new design elements
splitscreen feature and more.
Xiaomi also claims to have optimised the system to enable faster app loading and boost performance which is why the company is teasing the launch with the hashtag #LightningFast.
Updates in Mi and Redmi devices of MIUI 9:
This will mean that the eligible Mi and Redmi devices sold in India will be getting the MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM. To refresh, the MIUI 9 is the latest version of Xiaomi's custom UI interface which was unveiled in August alongside the Xiaomi Mi 5X.
Updates for Redmi 5?
Redmi India's Twitter handle indicates the new phone may belong to Redmi range. The tweet included the teaser image and said, "I'm not a Note" thus confirming that the upcoming Xiaomi device may not belong to Mi Note-series, as previously speculated, or even the Redmi Note series. Other taglines included were "I'm not a book" and "I'm a new series." The company is heavily marketing the phone as to click "best selfies" somehow tipping that the phone will be targeted at selfie-obsessed users.
Redmi 5A in China:
The company also unveiled the Redmi 5A smartphone in China earlier this month which is the successor to the Redmi 4A. In August, it had launched the Redmi Note 5A in China, with a 16-megapixel front camera revealing its focus on selfies. The company may launch these smartphones at its November 2 launch as well.
