MIUI 8 Will Stop Updating Until August For Many Phones

Bad news for the owners of many Xiaomi phones: the MIUI 8 will stop updating for about two months. Luckily we are not talking about the Global ROM, but about every Beta and Alpha project. So, if you have installed a MIUI Global Beta ROM or a MIUI China Developer Beta ROM, you will stop receiving updates if your phone is in the list below. As the beta testers know, these ROM were updating either weekly or very frequently with new features and system optimizations: all this will stop, so you can start deciding if it is worth keeping that ROMs or not.

Xiaomi has not provided a clear reason for interrupting the MIUI 8 updates, but we can imagine it. Probably the company wants to focus on the system optimization and to get the user experience better on phones that were left behind in the latest period. Note that all the Stable ROMs will still be updated as before and there will be no changes for them. This is the first time in more than five years that the company decides to interrupt the public updates to focus on a private development. Another reason may be the imminent release of MIUI 9, the new major version of the user interface based on Android Nougat. The phones which will not receive updates anymore for the MIUI 8 Global Beta ROM are the following:
