MIUI 9 announced with refined UI, split-screen mode and smart assistant

Xiaomi has launched MIUI 9, the new version of MIUI Android ROM. I am curious as to what the new file system will be in MIUI 9 (both my Mi 6 and Mi Max 2 on MIUI 8 are ext4). There is also multi-window functionality included that was missing in the earlier iteration of MIUI 9.

In addition to the image search, smart assistant and smart app launcher, the OS also brings in various other improvements. These features are however exclusive to the MIUI 9 China ROM. Upon activation, Smart App Launcher will analyze the contents on your screen and will accordingly provide users with contextual options.

The Mi AI Speaker offers numerous features that you'd expect from a smart speaker, like the ability to ask it questions, check the weather, play music, and control smart home appliances. This comes at a time when OEMs are focusing on building smart assistants of their own. Even if images are inside conversations, the phone will be able to pick them up. You will also see a new design in the lock screen shortcut.

Xiaomi Smart Assistant joins the already crowded AI helper market, going up against Google Assistant, Siri, Bixby, and others. MIUI 9 introduces three new themes: No Boundaries, Color Fantasy and Cool Black. With a firm grip over China and India, Xiaomi, which is often referred to as the Apple of the East, has been working in developing many new smartphones. We really can't say if the camera will be as powerful as that of the Mi 6 due to the powerful SD 835 chip which the Mi 6 features. Dubbed Mi 5X, it's Xiaomi's first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat based MIUI 9 out-of-the-box.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will be available on Flipkart and Mi.com on Wednesday from 12pm. However, the Mi 1/1S and Mi 2A will get it as well.

After the numerous leaks and speculations, the Xiaomi Mi 5X has been announced officially along with the MIUI 9.

Xioami Mi 6 get its strength from a 3350mAh battery which is coupled with MIUI optimisations which enable the Mi 6 to last up to a full day.

This is not the first case of explosion related to Xiaomi phones.

Xiaomi has finally provided an upgrade to its custom Android ROM, MIUI. Now, if you have an eligible smartphone, you can apply to become a tester using the app called MIUI Global Forum app.
