Stable MIUI 9 Global ROM arrives on November 2, Xiaomi confirms

MIUI 9 is the absolute latest iteration of Xiaomi’s UI overlay on top of Android. It was officially unveiled back in July when the Mi 5X got announced. Since that point, there have been many beta builds of the MIUI 9 Global ROM for supported devices, and now we’re thankfully very close to the stable version’s release.

The stable MIUI 9 Global ROM is going to be out on November 2, according to Xiaomi. This will at least be true for handsets sold in India. Not at all coincidentally, on that same day the company is holding an event in the subcontinent, during which it’s promised to unveil a new selfie-centric smartphone series. The first device in that line will undoubtedly run MIUI 9 from day one.

The new software is expected to be released in China by the end of this month. MIUI 9 comes with image search (by keywords depicting what is in the picture), a smart assistant (since the world obviously needs more of those), and a smart app launcher (which works based on screen content, so it will pop up Maps if you talk about going somewhere for example).
