Xiaomi posted the news on its MIUI forums page. One has to download the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM manually to install it on the supported device. To recall, Xiaomi announced the MIUI 9 alongside the Xiaomi Mi 5X smartphone last month. The Mi 5X is the company’s first smartphone to boot MIUI 9 right out of the box.

The Apple of China is currently testing the MIUI 9 update for several smartphones. Once Xiaomi reaches the final phase of the beta testing, it will release the stable version of the MIUI 9 to all the supported smartphones.

For the unaware, here are the Xiaomi smartphones set to get MIUI 9 update.

The update is already available as a beta version for most of the device. Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 brought in a slew of new features such as faster app load time, improved performance, new themes, smart image search, Split Screen mode, Smart Assistant, Smart App Launcher, etc.

However, most of these features are not available in the Global Beta ROM though. The MIUI 9 Global ROM brings in only a few features such as faster app load time, split screen mode, new themes, and revamped lock screen.

No need to unlock bootloader…..only non MIUI stuff need twrp to flash, for twrp bootloader unlock is needed.

Now backup, download ROM, open updater app, browse that downloaded file to update.

After completing first boot…..reset your phone again to keep it as clean install

Now restore from backup. Unlike stock Android this MIUI has backup option as easy way to get all apps in place like before this.
