Xiaomi has already unveiled its latest MIUI 8 ROM last month at an event in China. Based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the ROM brings new features and a redesigned interface which is more in sync with Google s Material Design. The beta version of the MIUI 8 is already available for download, and the coming version is likely to gain support for one important feature. The announcement could take place on June 30, where Xiaomi is set to launch the Mi Max phablet in New Delhi, along with MIUI 8.

According to GizmoChina, Xiaomi will be adding Android N-like split-screen multitasking feature to MIUI 8. This feature allows you to run two apps simultaneously, either side-by-side or top and bottom. While the feature may not come as a part of the initial release, it is likely to come as a part of minor update in the future. Also, there is no word on which smartphones will support the feature.

MIUI 8 comes with a new revamped Gallery app along with features such as filters, photo cropping and video editing tools, and more. There s a new advanced calculator app that lets you convert currencies, temperature, metric conversions and more. The Notes app has also gained support for secured access with fingerprint and password protection.

With battery life being one of the major concerns, MIUI 8 also includes power saving mode to freeze background apps. The MIUI 8 update is compatible with all Redmi and Note series smartphones, along with the Mi 2, Mi 2s, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 4c, Mi 4s and Mi 5.

Ahead of the Mi Max launch event this week, Xiaomi has also taken its Mi Community live. It s a dedicated forum for Mi fans in India, where they can interact with other users, share feedback and participate in contests. The Mi Community also has dedicated sections with tips-and-tricks, flashing guides and a thread where users can post photos clicked on Xiaomi smartphones.

Other features include a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, a 4,850mAh battery with support for Quick Charging, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and 4G LTE with VoLTE connectivity. While pricing details are scarce at the moment, in China, prices start around Rs 15,300 approximately and go all the way up to Rs 20,500 approximately.
