Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus to Run MIUI 9
Yesterday, Xiaomi confirmed launching the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in China on December 7. Today, it has been revealed that both devices will be running the new MIUI9. The new MIUI was launched earlier this month and is available for smartphones launched even five years ago (Mi 2).
The new MIUI 9 has many features and a couple of tricks on its sleeve, focusing on speed, fluency, and stability. It comes with dynamic resource allocation, prioritizing the resources the running app requires over the background process. MIUI will improve its performance as previous people have complained of slow, bloated, and lagging problems.
Searching things in the MIUI9 has become smoother. It brings an Artificial Intelligence wave with a Smart Assistant to find anything and everything; swiping right on the home screen brings up search options, information cards, and customizable widgets. A new image search functionality also brings natural language search and allows users to search their photo gallery using keywords like people, locations, and expressions.
A new Smart App launcher and the split screen feature are available on the Android 8.0 Oreo. The notification panel is entirely new, with bundled notifications and quick replies. An image editor and a new Mi Video app offer automatic grouping, multilingual subtitles, and support for more video formats.
Indian users will get support for the Panchang calendar, festival cards, Horoscope, News, Cricket News, Cricket Schedule, Football Schedule, Health and Fitness, and ‘On this Day’ information. Also, Xiaomi apps like Mi Calculator, Mi Explorer, and Mi Drop will be available in the Google Play Store as standalone apps.
