MIUI 10, the successor to MIUI 9, was announced alongside the Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition and the Mi 8 SE. MIUI 10 features a new UI, redesigned keeping in mind the needs and demands of smartphones with high screen-to-body ratios and thin bezels. The brand new Recents menu, for example, features a 2×2 app grid to enable more apps and content to be visible, as opposed to the sideways scrolling card switcher that was found on MIUI . It also supports full-screen gestures to help users live without capacitive buttons.
A point to note, however, is that the MIUI ROM that is available in China is different from the MIUI ROM that is made available globally. MIUI in China comes with features that are more suited for their target demographic in that country, with deeper integrations to Xiaomi’s online services and partnerships. The Global ROM is not merely a translation of the Chinese ROM, as it tries to deliver more on the expectations of users around the world who do not have access to all of Xiaomi’s product and service ecosystem, and have access to Google’s instead.
