Xiaomi announced the MIUI 8 in China back in May and later, last month, at the launch of the Mi Max phablet in India, the company hinted that the beta version will hit some select Xiaomi smartphones publicly by July.
The public beta which will be released on July 11, will be made available on the Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi Max, Mi Note, Mi 4i, Mi 4, Mi 3, Mi 2, Redmi Note 3, Redmi Note 2, Redmi Note Prime, Redmi Note, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi 2, and Redmi 1s. But obviously, that is not the big news which many fans have been waiting to hear.
Anticipations have continued to heighten about the release date of the MIUI 8 stable ROM which promises an awesome array of all new features. The anticipation has been put to rest with the official statement from Xiaomi that the MIUI 8 stable ROM will be rolling out publicly by August 16, 2016.
Already, we have the MIUI 7.5 stable ROM which comes with some of the features the MIUI 8 will come with but then it isn’t MIUI 8 and at the end of the day, we all want to experience all the features the MIUI 8 offers as soon as possible.
In addition, we have been told in previous statements that the MIUI 8 will later feature a split screen, screen recording, fingerprint payment and other functions but these features may not be available on the MIUI 8 stable ROM from the August 16 release date.
