Xiaomi first announced the new MIUI 10 Custom ROM during the Mi 8 launch conference held on May 31. In essence, the new ROM comes pre-installed on the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer edition. Since then, the new Custom ROM has been rolled out to a number of eligible Xiaomi models but the ROM in question is the beta ROM. The first batch of beta ROM was released on June 19 and since then three batches have been released covering a total of 37 Xiaomi models. The Global beta was also made available recently for up to twenty different models.
Xiaomi has now started the rollout of the MIUI 10 China stable ROM and the 2017 flagship Mi 6 is the first to receive the OTA upgrade. The new upgrade includes Google August 1 security patch and the entire update package is about 589MB. Users of the Xiaomi Mi 6 in China may not be able to access the update just yet as it is a Stable beta ROM. Thus, the OTA update is being pushed randomly to select Mi 6 users. We expect the full rollout to happen in a short while.
As would be recalled, MIUI 10 is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and it has as its biggest upgrade the AI technology. The AI technology on MIUI 10 brings deep learning and thus reduces the loading time of apps by studying your app usage behaviour and anticipating actions. Another advantage is that MIUI 10 brings single camera bokeh mode to old Xiaomi smartphones including Xiaomi Mi 5 and Xiaomi Mi Note 2. The custom ROM also comes with a new driving mode, smart home gadgets manager and other features in addition to the existing features of MIUI 9.
