Xiaomi just announced that MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.10.19 was released. Several models will be able to upgrade to Xiaomi’s latest version of software, which was only available for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 before. The latest version of the Xiaomi MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM fixes the Fingerprint module damage caused by fingerprint identification error and KRACK WPA2 security vulnerabilities among others. Xiaomi fans can easily download the new beta from the company’s MIUI page. They will also find there clear instructions on how to install the update on their smartphones.
The Xiaomi MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.10.19 is available, as we already mentioned, for a number of devices. The Xiaomi handsets that support the upgrade are the Redmi Note 4 MTK, Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm/Redmi Note 4X, Mi 6, Mi Note, Mi Note 2, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi Max, Mi Max Prime, Mi Max 2, Mi 2/2S, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 4i, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi 3, Redmi 3S, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi Note Prime, Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm, Redmi Note 3 Special Edition, Redmi Note 2, and the Redmi 4 / 4X. Of course, other devices will also become eligible for the upgrade at a later moment.
Besides the aforementioned system fixes, the Xiaomi MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.10.19 also addresses a number of other issues. These include fixes in the Gallery and optimizations in the home screen. The new version should normally allow users to more easily move app icons into a folder, and the clock widget now supports multiple themes. Even though the upgrade is welcome, MIUI 9 is still based on Android 7. Xiaomi fans are probably eagerly waiting for the MIUI that will be based on Android Oreo to appear. Unfortunately, it seems that the moment when they will get it is nowhere close. There will still be months before the final version of MIUI 9 will roll out to all Xiaomi devices that are eligible for the upgrade. Xiaomi will most likely develop a custom Android ROM based on Oreo at one point, however, we have no idea when that will happen.
Right now, Xiaomi fans should start installing the Xiaomi MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.10.19 that just rolled out. It brings along some improvements, ensuring a better user experience than the previous version did.
