Xiaomi's much-awaited annual launch event is only a few hours away from now where it will be making a number of announcements. While we have already reported about rumors related to hardware releases including the Mi 8, it is now time for leaks related to the software part. The new leak is coming from TechnoCodex and includes various MIUI 10 screenshots.
The leak reveals that Xiaomi's next-gen MIUI 10 is all set to receive major visual improvements along with new features and under the hood improvements. The first thing that you will notice straight away is a striking resemblance to Android P. It seems like Xiaomi was heavily inspired by Google when it came to designing and including improvements to its own custom Android ROM.
To start off, MIUI 10 is shown with quick settings and notification panel design similar to Android P. You can see the rounded icons with Blue and White color scheme. There is also a volume control bar aligned vertically on the right side instead of being at the top. It seems like it will work exactly the same way Android P's volume control bar works. There is also a quick shortcut just below it which allows users to switch between different sound profiles by simply tapping.
The recent apps interface has been redesigned as well. It now shows up to four apps in one go and all of them has live preview which gives you a glimpse of what was going in each of the apps. You can check out other visual changes in the screenshot below.
The leak further reveals the name of the devices which will be receiving an upgrade to MIUI 10. The list includes the Mi 6, Mi 5/5s/Plus, Mi 4, Mi 3, Mi 4s, Mi 4c, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Redmi Y1/Lite, Mi Note 2, Mi Note 3, Redmi Note 3/ Pro, Redmi Note 4/4x, Redmi 5A, Redmi Note 5A, Mi 5X, Mi Max, Mi Max 2, Redmi 4/4x, Redmi 4A, Redmi 3/3S/Prime, Redmi Pro, Redmi 3x, Mi Pad 3, Redmi Note 5 (Pro), Redmi S2, Mi 6X, and Mi Mix 2S.
It should be noted that this is only a leak at the moment and there is a possibility that some or all of the things mentioned could turn out to be wrong. This is the reason we would suggest you wait for the launch event to know all the details officially.
