MIUI 6 revealed by XiaoMi
XiaoMi celebrated its 4th birthday with new special discounts on its accessories. It also announced the introduction of the MIUI 6!
MIUI is XiaoMi’s custom version of the Android operating system. According to the company, the custom OS has over 70 million active users around the globe. The latest MIUI, version 6 will be based on Android 4.4 KitKat and will offer users a new interface that is similar to the current flat UI design.
MIUI 6 focuses on giving users content upfront and a visually pleasing experience that is convenient. The version will have flatter icon designs and skinnier fonts. Some functional changes that you will see in this version will be a better notification system which can be sorted by priority levels and a smarter calendar which dynamically pulls content and holiday dates based on your interest. For its MiCloud online storage, they have also enhanced it to make photo sharing across family and friends easier on any device.
As of August 16, the MIUI 6 has been available to 1000 beta users. The company is giving 100 of our local Malaysians the chance to be part of the group that first tries it out. Just next week, another 10000 beta testers will be given the opportunity to try version 6.
The developer build version will be available early next month. By coming October, everybody will be able to get their hands on this operating system. We’re expecting both Mi3 and Mi4 flagship models to be the first to receive the feature.
