But before the official release of MIUI 8, Xiaomi will push out MIUI 7.5 V1 that will contain some new features found on MIUI 8 such as Xiaomi Mi5 app lock, new input method etc. MIUI 7.5 will begin the roll-out on June 29 at 11.00 and will be available to those using a stable version of MIUI only. So, if any of you have installed the developer version of MIUI and you want to have a taste of MIUI 7.5, you have to install a stable version first.

MIUI official also answered a number of hot issues in this version, such as:

  • Regarding the Xiaomi Mi3/Mi4 Unicom version that when you add a second SIM card, the first SIM card operates in 2G only.
  • The three-finger swipe to take a screenshot has been launched for trial and it is coming soon to developer versions.
  • In the “Buyers’ Protection Plan”, if the price of a device drops within 7 days after your purchase, you will be refunded the price difference.
