Xiaomi has been having a great week so far with a successful launch in India. The company is now pushing out updates to its Mi 3 smartphone which seems to do a lot more than just crush a few bugs. The update replaces the current firmware with the newer MIUI KDDMIBE 18.0 version and is about 592 MB in size.
As for what the update brings, it is indeed a lot (click here for the change log), but mostly stuff that should have been in there in the first place. Apart from going down the legal way via the System Updates app on your Mi 3, you could also head here and download and flash the update manually.
There are new additions in the form of ‘Resend All’ button in the email app, an optimised online music page, a newer version of ‘blocklist’ and the handy status bar only incoming calls indicator when you happen to be busy in another app.
There are also a few other minor additions to the beautiful built-in weather app, the Calendar and the System Cleaner.
The Indian version of the handset runs the MIUI V5 skin on top of Android KitKat. The software will soon see a big update with V6 that will be announced on the 16th of August. Indeed the company will not rest on its laurels and is working hard to ensure that customers who have made the switch to a shiny new Mi 3 will not face any problems.
