The long-awaited MIUI 8 update for a wide range of Xiaomi handsets launches today. Although the OTA update only reaches a few of these devices starting today, the list of supported devices is pretty long. The MIUI 8 global build was announced in India two months ago, and now the updated firmware is available both as downloadable ROM package and via OTA.

Arriving one week later than initially promised by Xiaomi, MIUI 8 comes with a major interface redesign, as well as a list of new features that also includes the following:

  • power saving mode
  • spam filter for the messaging app
  • app startup management
  • improved Notes app
  • various utilities
  • enhanced Gallery app

The full list of supported devices includes popular Xiaomi handsets like the Redmi 1S, the Redmi 3 series and Redmi 2 series, and more. The devices that receive the OTA starting today are only these - Redmi 1S, Mi 2/2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 3G, Redmi Note 4G. The OTA update for all the others "will be released progressively in the near future," reveals Xiaomi.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
