As expected may Xiaomi smartphones will get the MIUI 9 update and the latest rollout happened on the Mi Max and the Mi Max Prime smartphones. This update will happen in phased manner, if you haven’t got the update yet, wait for few days.

MIUI 9 is lightning fast and if you have been using the older MIUI version you will surely notice the difference between the older as well as the new version. The Mi Max was running MIUI 8 based on Marshmallow.

MIUI 9 will add many new features including split screen with new improvements that allow you to switch the screen with a simple tap. Plus there is new cool animation, themes and more. If you are using a Mi Max handset you might get a notification for the update – the update size is around 640MB.

        1. I think you should wait for some time. It’s not rolled out for all.
