Xiaomi India has just announced the time table for the MIUI 11 official release. As usual, the release will be not at once but incrementally. It means that some devices will get it faster while others will be later.
MIUI 11 is the long-waited major update of Xiaom’s own skinned Android OS. It ships not only with bug fixes and security patches but also with some new key features.
We teased about MIUI 11 previously with its first Beta builds. In fact, MIUI 11 Stable build has already been available for the China market. Its Global version, however, ships with Google Apps and more localized country languages.
The MIUI Global India is just like the usual MIUI 11 Global except certain India-only features being added.
One of which is the Mint keyboard. The new Mint keyboard is a made-in-India application and supports 25 Indic languages. This is awesome!
The newly coming keyboard app also supports translations with transliterations. Hence, the app is capable of automatically suggesting you with translations of the words typed by you.
Another cool feature is “Video as Live Wallpaper”. With this, you can use any videos you want as your lockscreen wallpaper.
The floating calculator app is another cool new feature as well. The app supports Picture-in-Picture (PIP) function. You can calculate anything while browsing, chatting, or watching videos.
More interestingly, there is also the Steps Tracker app. You can make use of the app to track how many steps have you walked daily. This simple app is useful for your health.
