Xiaomi reveals MIUI 10 launch plans

Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 download has been around since late May and in fact, we already know the devices that will be upgraded to MIUI 10. However, what had remained elusive is the release roadmap, until now.

Xiaomi has published an official MIUI 10 release roadmap for all eligible devices and as expected, the rollout will happen in phases, as shown below.

Phase 1

Phase 1 of the rollout begins in early July and this will see the following devices receive MIUI 10 public beta outside China:

  • Mi MIX 2S
  • Mi MIX
  • Mi 5
  • Mi Note 2
  • Redmi Note 5
  • Redmi Note 5 Pro

Note that the Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi MIX 2 and Redmi S2 have already received the public beta outside China, hence their omission from the above list. As for the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro, a closed beta update is available, but it’ll be opened up to the public in the next few days.
