After months of testing, Xiaomi started deploying MIUI 10 to devices starting with latest models such as Mi Mix series, Mi 8, Redmi Note 5 and others. Now, the company has expanded to roll-out service to Redmi 4A, an older but popular budget phone of 2017.
Xiaomi MIUI 10 is now available to the Redmi 4A in India. It has to be noted that the devices have low-end hardware and due to this limitation, the company is using Android 7.1.2 Nougat, not the Android 8.1 Oreo used in other devices.
Rest assured, the performance will improve in the Redmi 4 series. It will also come with value-added features to improve user experience on the phone. Xiaomi's new MIUI 10 is expected to improve the photography experience in the Redmi 4 series.
Here's how to install Android-based MIUI 10 on Redmi 4A:
Step 1: Once you get new software notification, select "Yes, I'm in"
Step 2: After the software is downloaded, select "Install now"
Step 3: After the software is installed, your phone will restart automatically
Step 4: Your phone is now updated
If you haven't received any update notifications, check it manually by going to Settings >> phone >> check system update. If it says there is an update available, follow the procedure as mentioned above.
Xiaomi MIUI 10: All you need to know
Responsive and fast
The one major aspect of the 2107-based MIUI 9 was 'Lighting Fast', this time Xiaomi is promising MIUI 10 will also make the devices more responsive in terms of app loading and more. It also comes with two critical system optimisations—Lock-free critical path and Co-dependent prioritizing, which improves the overall responsiveness of MIUI 10 by 10%.
The new MIUI 10 brings a completely new system of sounds. From notifications to audio feedback and ambient sounds from an app like the timer with nature-related water droplets, rain, sand dunes in the wind on a desert, forest sound with waterfall effect, ocean wave sound and more, which soothes the users' mood rather than annoyed by notifications and calls. MIUI 10 is also designed in a way that will reduce the aural clutter.
Customised for India
Most Xiaomi device owners are already familiar with a personalised theme for India including the pachanga calendar, festival-related wallpapers and more in MIUI 9.
Now, the new MIUI 10 follows up the region-specific feature such as the camera app doubling up as a Paytm QR code scanner, a local service page in the in-built browser with full support for PWA (progressive web apps), and the content-rich libraries of Mi Music and Mi Video ensure a great, entertaining and an ergonomic experience.
It also adds a quick menu tab to all business messages, which allows users to explore more about the service with one tap.
