Xiaomi starts pushing out MIUI 7.1; new build still based on KitKat
Yesterday, we told you that Xiaomi would start pushing out the update to MIUI 7.1 Global Stable Build today. And sure enough, the latest build of the manufacturer's user interface has been sent out to certain devices OTA. On Monday, when we first told you that the update was being sent out, we mentioned that we did not know which Android build MIUI 7.1 would be based on. We now have the answer.
MIUI 7.1, like MIUI 7.0, is based on KitKat. The highlighted changes that come with the update include:
File Explorer supports hidden folders.
New ‘Doodle’ tool added for image editing in Gallery.
Mi Drop makes it easier to share files with nearby devices.
Data saver lets you save up to 50% data usage.
Six text sizes available for you to choose from including XS.
The update is coming to the Xiaomi Mi 3, Xiaomi Mi 4, Xiaomi Mi Note, Xiaomi Mi 4i, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, Xiaomi Redmi 2, Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime, Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime, Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G and Xiaomi Mi Pad. Because MIUI 7.1 will be sent out on a staggered basis, you might not receive it for a few days. If you can't wait, don't call CNN and tell them you're going on a hunger strike. If you're knowledgeable about phones, you can click on the sourcelink and flash the ROM to your phone.
Thanks for the tip!
