Last week, Xiaomi announced that it will be rolling out the MIUI 9 update to nearly all of its devices, including devices like the Mi 2 and Mi 2S, which came out in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
The MIUI 9 is based on Android Nougat, but this doesn’t mean all listed devices will be updated to Nougat. Instead, the company will simply update its own software and leave the underlying Android version untouched – at least for most of them.
Now, in a new development, Xiaomi has just announced the MIUI 10, the immediate successor to the MIUI 9. The news was made public at an event in Beijing and according to Hong Feng, the VP of Xiaomi, the main focus of the MIUI 10 will be AI and machine learning, but this is the much we know so far.
At the moment, the stable version of the MIUI is at number 9.1.1, but the beta version 9.2.1 is already rolling out to some users. Some of the features you get on the latest version are split screen and picture in picture mode, features that are part of Android Oreo. Still, we expect that the new MIUI 10 will also be based on Oreo.
