Xiaomi’s custom OS, MIUI 11, has been in the testing phase for quite some time now, and it looks like the company is gearing up for the rollout of the new software soon. Xiaomi’s Product Director and the Experience Chief for MIUI has confirmed that the MIUI 11 stable version launch is not far away and it may arrive by the end of September.
Since it’s already a little over a year since Xiaomi introduced the MIUI 10, the launch of MIUI 11 is imminent. While the Xiaomi Product Director did not give an exact date for the release of MIUI 11, he posted about a lucky draw for two MIUI conference tickets on Weibo.
The draw time ends on September 5, 2019. Hence, there is a slight possibility that the MIUI 11 will see the light at least by the end of September.
Xiaomi smartphone users will be waiting for the new MIUI version as each version of the custom OS brings significant changes to the table along with new features. One of the most anticipated features of the MIUI 11 is its Dark Mode.
Aside from new features, the new software is expected to address the advertisement issue in the Xiaomi phones, which has become the talk of the town in recent times. Early reports suggest that the new features in MIUI 11 will include face unlock and fingerprint sensor working in conjunction for faster unlock speed.
MIUI 11 will also come with automatic screenshots management, new app drawer, new sound effects, improved AI features, private albums for videos, improved energy-saving functions like Monochrome and more.
