With the launch of the new smartphone, the company is also launching the global stable version of its MIUI 9 operating system in India on the same day.

This means that the eligible Mi and Redmi devices sold in India will be getting the MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM. Some of the new features of MIUI 9 include-
- Faster app load times
- New design elements
- Lock screen shortcuts
- Split-screen feature and more.
Xiaomi India claims they have optimised the system to enable faster app loading and boost performance. Which is why the company is teasing the launch with the hashtag, #LightningFast.
Mi and Redmi series are already launched in Indian markets and with the new release, the company was expected to bring the Mi Note series in India. Though, the latest series of tweets confirm it may be a new Redmi series and also it won’t be Note Series as well. A few months back Xiaomi sent out similar launch invites, teasing a ‘new series’, and then had revealed the Mi A1 – the first smartphone in an all-new Android One range by Xiaomi that’s made in collaboration with Google.
Currently, Xiaomi covers a broad range of price categories with its Redmi and Mi-Series smartphones. The Redmi 4A (INR 5999) is the company’s cheapest Android smartphone offering in the country while the recently unveiled Mi MIX 2 (INR 35999) is the most expensive one in the entire portfolio.
