MIUI 10 Features
Just a week ago, Xiaomi has launched MIUI 10 along with MI 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi band 3 in China. And Xiaomi has also announced the MIUI 10 in India along with Redmi Y2.
The main highlight of the MIUI 10 is Speed, New UI Design, AI features and Sound.
In the launch event, Xiaomi showed the speed test compared the MIUI 10 with Samsung galaxy j7 Duo. MIUI 10 has outperformed 2 times more than Samsung galaxy j7 duo.
The UI of MIUI 10 is now more refined and utilizes the new tall screen ratio and full-screen displays. The recent menu has been revamped as well to better display the content of the apps.
In the sound department, MIUI 10 brings cool new notifications that are based on nature sounds. Each notification you receive comes with unique sound and when pop one after another, they form a “rhythmic pattern”.
And last, but not least, the software brings a trendy new feature – the bokeh portrait mode. This one works thanks to AI algorithm without the use of a second camera, so the background can be blurred even on the old Xiaomi phones with one sensor on the back.
With MIUI 10 old devices like Redmi note 4, Redmi note 3 can also capture portrait shots with the single camera. Firstly they will enable the portrait mode for the front-facing camera and afterward they will enable for Rear cameras.
