Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had recently confirmed that the company’s forthcoming Shenzhen event will be used to unveil a variety of new products. Yesterday, the Chinese manufacturer not only confirmed the May 31 date for the Shenzhen event, but also stated that Xiaomi Mi 8 will be also announced through it. Today, the official MIUI Weibo account has confirmed that Xiaomi will be also launching the MIUI 10 on May 31.
Last year, the Chinese manufacturer had claimed that the MIUI 9 is as fast as lightning, but the official poster shown below shows that the MIUI 10 will be faster than lightning. This indicates that the MIUI 10 will be offering better performance than the MIUI 9. Xiaomi had claimed at the beginning of this year that the MIUI 10 won’t be released to Xiaomi phones that are still running on the older Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Chinese firm had recently rolled out the MIUI 9.5 update to some of its smartphones. However, around a month ago, Xiaomi had temporarily halted the rollout of MIUI 9 updates which suggested that the MIUI 10 could be arriving soon.
It seems that the Xiaomi Mi 8 that will be debuting as the company’s 8th anniversary smartphone will be the first phone to feature the MIUI 10. A leaked shot that had revealed that the structured light 3D module of the Xiaomi Mi 8 had revealed that the MIUI (or rather the MIUI 10) would be modified to house the notch.
Xiaomi is also expected to debut the Mi Band 3 fitness tracker at the upcoming annual product launch event. Some rumors have claimed that Xiaomi won’t be launching the Mi 7 smartphone. Instead, it may announce the Mi 8 flagship. However, a leaked photo showing two different front panels of notch enabled Xiaomi phones that had surfaced earlier this week has suggested that they may belong to Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi 7. Hence, there is a possibility that the company also announce Mi 7 at May 31 event.
Xiaomi is unlikely to debut the Mi Max 3 phablet at the May 31 since Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has claimed that it will be made official in July.
