Fast charging smartphone series for next month teased by Xiaomi; MIUI 9 could see a November release

Xiaomi published a teaser today that appears to focus on a new smartphone series with fast charging capabilities. Besides showing a logo that relates to battery charging, the teaser includes a hashtag that reads #YourBestSelfie. As a result, we would imagine that the phone being teased will also feature something new with the front-facing selfie snapper that improves how selfies turn out.

According to Xiaomi, we should learn more about the new device(s) on November 2nd, which is a week from today. The company says that this smartphone series includes "something you have been impatiently waiting for." An intriguing statement to be sure. And Xiaomi plans on releasing a new teaser every day until the unveiling next Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Stable ROM version of Xiaomi's MIUI 9 skin for Android will reportedly be disseminated next month. Among the new features it brings to Xiaomi handsets is a brand new virtual assistant (Xiaomi Smart Assistant) to challenge Google Assistant, Siri and Alexa. MIUI 9 will also filter photos by keywords, and launch apps based on the content showing on the screen.

However, this week Xiaomi has suspended the two beta releases which certainly seems like a sign that the Stable ROM version is ready for prime time. The devices expected to be compatible with the ROM include the following:
