As we discussed in our previous article that stable global Build of MIUI 7 will start rolling out from 27th October, looks like Xiaomi is right on time! Yes, MIUI 7 is rolling out now. However, the update has currently been received by Mi 4 users so far. Mi 4 is Xiaomi’s current flagship and is one of the first devices in the list of smartphones from Xiaomi to get MIUI 7.

For Mi 4, the file size of the update is 666 MB and comes with build number KXDMICI (Indian variant). We are pretty sure that Mi 4 users will be highly disappointed after reading the next sentence. The device, however, lacked behind in Android version with 4.4.4 (KitKat). While it was expected that MIUI 7 will be based on Lollipop.

In any way, MIUI 7 is still far better than MIUI 6. According to Xiaomi, MIUI 7 will add many system optimizations that will increase speed by 30% and battery performance by 10% and other fixes for WiFi related issues. As they state, MIUI 7 will bring along the following new features and improvements:

  • Better battery
  • Better RAM management
  • Improved and tweaked UI
  • Better notifications
  • Improved WiFi connectivity
  • New themes and wallpapers
  • Ability to adjust text sizes
