Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is in deed a great value-for-money phone. It sports 48MP camera powered with Sony IMX sensor. On top of that, Qualcomm SDM675 Snapdragon 675 (11 nm) chipset provides enough horse power to run any tasks.
Many have been amazed with its specifications. Die hard Mi Fans couldn’t resist the tempting device and they sometimes have to import it.
There is nothing bad about imported devices except one thing, the localized language. Sorry,.. may be two thing, the unnecessary foreign-tailored apps which we usually call it as bloatware.
Answering such a challenge, Xiaomi.eu comes with its customized MIUI ROM. Xiaomi.eu ROM is basically a customized version of MIUI China Stable (and Beta) ROM.
The main objective of Xiaomi.eu is the provision of localized version of MIUI ROM for international users.
Up until we posted this article, Redmi Note 7 Pro has no Global worldwide ROM. The currently available one is MIUI Global India. This build comes with customized built-in stock apps for Indian users.
Xiaomi.eu provides an efficient version of MIUI. It comes with no useless apps for international users. Xiaomi.eu MIUI ROM also comes with ready-to-select local languages from English, Spain, France, Bahasa Indonesia, Italian, Vietnamese, Dutch, Turkish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Korean, Catalan, Japanese, Arabic, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, and so on.
All in all, it is a great alternative to the official MIUI ROM. It also has OTA update which allows users to upgrade the MIUI without having to download the full ROM package.
