The new MIUI version is expected to show up in the middle of 2017. This new firmware would be based on Nougat, and its list of features is said to include screen recording, split-screen, picture-in-picture, and more.

Most Xiaomi users are quite happy with the Chinese brand's customized Android version. Unfortunately, MIUI 8 only delivered Android 7.0 Nougat to some Xiaomi handsets, leaving others stuck with Marshmallow for the time being. Hopefully, MIUI 9 is going to fix this once it comes out, also coming with a few features, shows the latest leak.

Insiders familiar with the matter recently unveiled that an email that details the new features to be delivered by MIUI 9 has recently been sent out. Its highlights include split-screen and picture-in-picture, the first one being voted by over 77 percent of those who took part in Xiaomi's poll about the new features its users would wish to get in MIUI 9.

Although this was not spotted in the email mentioned earlier, screen recording was added to MIUI 8 Developer Edition, so it is very likely to see it in MIUI 9 as well. Since Xiaomi already announced via Weibo that MIUI 9 is scheduled to come out in around two months, remains to see if they manage to get it on the market in time.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
