These days, most of the Android smartphones come with a custom ROM riding on top of the vanilla version of Android. With this method, the phone manufacturers leave some of their signature customisations with the phones UI and UX and ensure that their users do not remain limited to the features of the stock Android. The implementation of the custom UI also helps these brands to set themselves apart and innovate further. Ever since the beginning, Xiaomi has been dwelling heavily on its popular MIUI. Only a few of the devices from Xiaomi come with the Android One certification and stock Android, rest all of Xiaomi devices boot the MIUI.

In its latest move, Xiaomi has clarified that it will be launching the MIUI 11 in 2019.
