Xiaomi Mi 9 is the flagship device released this year (2019). It’s the company’s first device powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.
It’s a real beast available at a very affordable price. Mi 9 is the best contender to other flagships by big brands like Samsung, Pixel, HTC, OnePlus, etc.
The device is first available in China. Some people get this device directly from China online stores such as Banggood, Gearbest, Alibaba/AliExpress, etc.
However, the China Mi 9 runs MIUI 10 China Stable ROM. It has only two languages, China and English.
Of course users can easily choose English for its default language.
There are two drawbacks. First, users cannot select local languages according to their local country. Russian, Polish, Hindi, Bengali, Spainish, French, Portuguese, Turkish, Romanian, German, Catalan, Finnish, and so on.
Second, Chinese MIUI ROM has no Play Store and hence it has no Google Apps.
There where Xiaomi.eu comes in. It is basically a custom ROM based on the official MIUI ROM China builds: Stable and Beta (Developer).
It has all the features of MIUI ROM minus those Chinese apps. Those apps could be bloatware for most users who don’t live in and cannot read Chinese.
Additionally, the developers add multiple languages and Google apps.
