Xiaomi can’t get any better. A few days ago we showed you the new Xiaomi shop in Spain. And now the Chinese company is updating several of its phones with the stable version of MIUI 9, its Android customization layer.
Last November 2nd, Xiaomi, one of the world’s leading mobile phone companies, announced the release of the stable version of MIUI 9 for Redmi Note 4 and Mi Max 2; this was the first batch of phones that the firmware would reach.
The stable version of MIUI 9 reaches Mi 5
This week, the stable version of MIUI 9 will be released in Mi 5, Mi Max, Redmi 4 and Redmi Y1 / Y1 Lite. In addition, this very morning, the Chinese company announced that it has started implementing the stable version of MIUI 9 on the Xiaomi Mi 5, one of its flagship phones.
The update in question comes with codename MIUI 188.8.131.52. NAAMIEI and is 571 MB in size. In addition to the novelties, it includes the October security patch, which is a big plus. This update has some very interesting news, which Xiaomi users are sure to appreciate very much: screen divided in MIUI, screen recorder, animations… A world of possibilities!
There are two great novelties in the stable version of MIUI 9. On the one hand, the multiventane. It is a feature that was not available in MIUI 8 and moved to the next version. And, on the other hand, facial recognition; Xiaomi 5 users will be able to unlock their phone with their face. It is not as advanced as Face ID, but I’m sure it works.
Xiaomi Mi 5, a phone that conquered the market
The Xiaomi Mi 5 arrived on the market in January 2016. It was the great flagship of the Chinese company last year. A device with a 5.2-inch screen with FullHD resolution. It mounts a Snapdragon 820 and has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage in the basic version. As for the camera, the rear has a resolution of 16 megapixels with f/2.2 aperture; and the front has 5 megapixels of resolution. I’m sure that the stable version of MIUI 9 is gradually reaching other Xiaomi phones. We’ll keep you posted.
