Xiaomi is expected to release the Stable version of its latest MIUI 9 custom ROM any moment from now. We can authoritatively report to you that the release may take place even sooner than expected. A sizable number of Xiaomi phone users in China have started receiving the update to MIUI 9 Stable version. A number of them have taken to Weibo to share the good news and from the look of things, it started rolling out today. We were able to detect this sizable number by search the keyword “MIUI9” on Weibo.
Xiaomi had earlier hinted that the MIUI 9 Stable ROM should be expected at the earliest this month and that disclosure was made about two months back. It is possible the tech giant has commenced the roll out of stable ROM and in the coming days we could see a full release of OTA updates ushering MIUI 9 to compatible models. It is likely that the stable ROM update will be in batches just as was done during the release of the Developer ROM.
Th first batch may likely contain models like Mi 6, Rrdmi 4X, Mi 5X, Mi Max 2which were recently released. Don’t get your hopes too high, though, as the recent releases could be to test the Stable ROM. The Stable ROM is the final product so it is expected to come with most of the bugs fixed since is updated only once a month or twice or even longer unlike Developer ROM that gets weekly updates. So, XIaomi may not be in a hurry to push updates just yet but that would be done sooner than later.
