Xiaomi MIUI 8 and Mi Band 2 are also arriving on May 10, alongside the previously announced Xiaomi Mi Max. It is already known that the Xiaomi Mi Max, will be sporting a mammoth 6.4-inch Full HD display; 2 GB of RAM; 16 GB of internal storage; 5 MP front shooter; 16-megapixel rear camera and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow; powered by hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor.
Turns out, Mi Max isn’t the only big announcement of this year, but Xiaomi has a few more products lined up. The company has confirmed that the next major iteration of its MIUI ROM as well as the Mi Band 2 will also be unveiled on May 10.
“Evolving from the first version in 2010, MIUI has served as the operating system for over 150 million across the globe,” a post on MIUI forum said. “On May 10, we will introduce you MIUI 8, with the features you always wanted and new designs beyond your imagination.”
The post was also accompanied by a video demo for the MIUI 8 notification bar.
Lei Jum, CEO of the Chinese company Xiaomi posted a photo of the second generation of Mi Band on Weibo, the Chinese social networking site.
Concerning the Mi Band 2, the Chinese company’s CEO himself teased the wearable device with its pictures, revealing that it will sport a display, something that was missing in the band’s previous versions.
The latest Mi Band sports a LED display with time, unlike the old Mi Band. It also has what seems like a button to change the information on display. The Mi Band 2 is expected to be introduced at a competitive price like its precursor and might be launched even before the MIUI 8.
MIUI 8 will likely run Android Marshmallow and feature many revamped UI features such as the new notification feed shared on Twitter.
Xiaomi Mi Max will most likely be the first phone to feature the MIUI 8.
