Xiaomi Mi 5X is the phone that was announced together with MIUI 9, but it has not been launched with the new user interface out of the box as the new ROM was still not ready. But now, at least in China, the phone has started updating to the latest iteration of the user interface launched by the Chinese giant. Unluckily the reports come just from China, there is no info about when the update will reach other parts of the world with the Global ROM. But we guess it will happen very soon as the company has just announced the global roll-out of the update.
If you live in China but you still did not receive the update, you can check in the Settings to force its arrival. Just head to the Settings app, tap on Info about device, then on Software updates, and select “Check for updates” to see if it is available. If you do not receive the notification on your Xiaomi Mi 5X, then you just need to wait for the coming days. With MIUI 9, there will be many new features and improvements on the software side.
Just to make some examples, there will be an advanced split screen feature with the picture in picture mode for multi tasking, which will make you open more than one app on the same screen or reduce them as small floating windows. There will be an Image Search feature, which will allow you to search for images with keywords based on their content. You will also get a new hardware acceleration technology on your Xiaomi Mi 5X, thanks to which the phone will have better performances. The company declared that MIUI 9 will be as fast as Android One on the Mi A1. And these are only some of the many improvements that you will find.
