8 Xiaomi phones have started receiving a new important update. We are referring to the Global Beta of the MIUI 10, the latest Android customization by the Chinese company announced on May 31 together with the Xiaomi Mi 8 line-up. The new Global Beta has been launched in India on the Redmi S2 days ago, and now it is finally expanding to several other devices.
The new firmware brings the number of version to 8.7.5 and, given that it is the Global version, it contains Google’s main apps such as the Play Store. The Xiaomi phones updated to the new MIUI 10 Global Beta are Xiaomi Mi6, Mi Mix 2, Redmi S2, Redmi Note 5 Pro (known as Redmi Note 5 in some markets), Mi Mix 2S, Mi 5, Mi Note 2 and Mi Mix.
Soon, the firmware will expand to more devices too. In order to update your handset, you need to adhere to the beta testing phase and you will install a ROM which may be unstable under some aspects. If you are on MIUI 7, 8 or 9 stable version, you need to update via fastboot after unlocking the bootloader, while if you already have the Global Beta ROM based on the MIUI 9 you just need to launch the Updater app.
