It’s no secret that Xiaomi has made its way into the hall of fame of smartphone manufacturers. Even though there didn’t seem to be any room left in there for another Asian brand, Xiaomi beat all the odds, and that’s all due to their amazing products. Nowadays, Xiaomi smartphones are some of the best in the world and there’s good reason for that.
Part of why Xiaomi smartphones are so highly functional is their MIUI Android-based OS. The Xiaomi MIUI, much like Huawei’s EMUI, is a customized and optimized operating system running on top of the most recent Android version in use. Well, in order to get ready for the impending launch of Android O this fall (or maybe as early as August, if we’re lucky), Xiaomi is coming out with MIUI 9.
MIUI 9 will have many of Android O’s trademark features, such as picture-in-picture videos, as well as the multi-tasking split-screen function that seems to be one of the best additions to Android as of yet. Xiaomi are doing this in order to prepare their devices for the launch of Android O, or Android 8.0.0 as it’s known as now. And it won’t be long until the newest Android reaches all the devices the support it, so it’s laudable that the Chinese tech company are already jumping on it.
Android O will reach most devices that support it in the same designated time frame, which is going to be an all-time premiere for the OS. Until now, the newer versions of Android rolled out ridiculously slow across multiple devices because of a little nasty thing called fragmentation. However, Google’s Project Treble will put an end to that as soon as Android 8.0.0 is officially launched. We can’t wait to see what will happen!
