Xiaomi has announced the launch of the Xiaomi MIUI 6 for August 16 and many have been hyped about the update which will be based on Android Kitkat. After the launch event, the company has called for beta testers to apply.
The MIUI 6 will be a new Android firmware and advertises itself as “visually stunning and stunningly simple” and promises optimization of functions and user interface, integration of content, ecosystem and internet services. The UI comes as a novelty for those using Xiaomi smartphones, but informs that the MIUI 6 will be available for other brands as well, such as LG, Samsung, Motorola, HTC, Oppo and ZTE.
When Xiaomi launched the MI4, the company expected it to become widely popular due to its excellent specs and beautiful design. Users who had bought the MI4 complained that the user interface was cluttered, too colorful and a bit childish. In response to these inefficiencies reported by MI fans, Xiaomi decided to update the MIUI from v5 to v6, which looks wonderful and mature from the screenshots that have been popping up online.
Xiaomi Mi4 sports a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at a 441 ppi pixel density and, according to the manufacturer, it's the fastest smartphone in the world. The Mi4 packs a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor under the hood, clocked at 2.5GHz and paired with Adreno 330 graphics and a hefty 3GB of RAM.
Other specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front facing shooter, both boasting sensors from Sony. A 3,080 battery keeps things up and running.
