MIUI 6 is a beautiful thing and comes to Androids from October


The MIUI, known ROM based on Android developed by China’s Xiaomi, is about the sixth major release. Last Saturday (16), the company  made ​​an event  to present the new features and a revamped interface, which was quite neat, removing many shadows and gradients to adopt a cleaner look. The ROM is still in closed beta and will begin arriving in October to smartphones.

Many commented on the similarities of MIUI with iOS 6 7 I can understand, because many screens really resemble Apple’s system: the compass calendar, there are obvious inspirations in the positions of the elements and color schemes. What I could not understand the commotion was so great, because since the first version, MIUI has always been very similar to iOS. There is no surprise here (is there?).


Speaking of ROM, MIUI 6 presents mainly the improvement of safety and performance. There is a malware checker and other permissions, to prevent an application from accessing your data without authorization. The kernel optimizations gained to improve the processing and memory consumption of a ROM that is not the lightest. In addition, there is a native feature battery saving, which can be activated automatically based on time you choose.

Other small but useful features of MIUI 6, are due to the blocking of calls from unwanted numbers; support for more than 5,000 topics; gestures to make using more comfortable large smartphones; and an identifier of calls from unknown numbers.As always, there is nothing Google factory installed, and the files can be stored in Mi Cloud, which offers 10 GB of space.


The development version of MIUI 6 will be released to the public in September, while the final arrives in October – initially, of course, for Xiaomi smartphones own. The current MIUI v5 can be downloaded  on this page  and more information about the ROM can be found in  the MIUI forum .
