After months of testing, leading smartphone-maker Xiaomi released the new MIUI 10 Global stable ROM to two more mobiles—Redmi 4, 3S and 3S Prime.
The MIUI 10 software bearing— V10.1.1.0.MALMIFI and V10.1.1.0.NAMMIFI—are being rolled out to the Redmi 3S (& 3S Prime) and Redmi 4, respectively. It can be noted that the firmware is based on Android Nougat, the devices, unlike new phones, have outdated hardware and are not compatible with Android Oreo.
Having said that Xiaomi has managed to optimise the Android Nougat-based MIUI 10 to improve the performance and also bring new features including nature-inspired ringtones, full-screen navigation experience and more.
Here's how to install Android-based MIUI 10 on Redmi 4, Redmi 3S & S3 Prime:
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.
MIUI 10: Change-log
Responsive and fast
Xiaomi is promising MIUI 10 will 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%.
Designed for the full-screen experience
All-new UI is tailored for full-screen devices and lets the content take the front stage.
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.
