Xiaomi MIUI 8 coming soon
The first global beta ROM is expected to come out on July 11th while the first global stable release is expected to arrive mid-August.

Xiaomi has just announced a new version of its custom Android ROM known as MIUI. However, those who are not into messing with beta-stage software will have to wait until mid-August, when the first global stable Xiaomi MIUI 8 ROM is expected to arrive. For the more adventurous ones, the public beta will become available later this month - on July 11, if everything goes as planned.

According to Xiaomi, MIUI 8 has been redesigned "from bottom up" and aims to simplify the lives of its users. The list of devices that are compatible with the beta release that is expected to arrive in less than two weeks is quite long - Mi 2/2S, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 4i, Mi 5, Mi Note, Mi Max 32GB, Redmi 1S, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi Note 3G, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi Note Prime, Redmi Note 2, Redmi Note 3.

The list of new features that MIUI 8 promises to bring includes Mi Cloud Photo Sync, full-length screenshots and a floating tool button similar to Samsung's Toolbox. The updates will be available both via the Mi Community or MIUI forum. As revealed by Xiaomi's VP Hugo Barra, MIUI currently has over 200 million users globally.

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.
