MIUI 7 beta now rolling out via OTA or Fastboot download

Recently, Xiaomi announced that it would (finally) give a refresh to the long serving MIUI 6 user interface. If you don’t know about MIUI, this is the preferred Android UI for Xiaomi devices, designed by Xiaomi themselves. It’s a little bit too much eye candy for me personally, but a lot of other people like the sleek and sweet style of MIUI. The refresh comes in the form of MIUI 7, all compatible for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Redmi 2, Mi 4i, Mi 3, Mi 4, Redmi Note 3G and Redmi Note 4G.

CM 12.1 nightly builds now out for the Xiaomi Mi 3, Mi 4

So you own a Xiaomi device – say last year’s Mi 3 or the current gen Mi 4 – and you would really like to know how the device runs on Android Lollipop.

Good thing the guys behind CyanogenMod have now put out nightly CM 12.1 builds for these Xiaomi devices.

Xiaomi launches MIUI 7 OS, Redmi Note 2, Mi Wi Fi nano in China

We don’t know if Xiaomi actually meant to steal Samsung’s thunder, but on the very day that the latter was launching their brand new devices, apparently the former was also doing a launch of their own, although it was on the other side of the world. Xiaomi launched in China not just their brand new phablet, the Redmi Note 2, but even their Mi Wi Fi nano router, and also the Miui7, an OS that is based on the Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Xiaomi makes other products too, rolls out the Mi TV 2S in China

In case you don't know, Xiaomi doesn't just make smartphones. The company also manufactures other devices like TVs and only recently, a water purifier. We're not much interested in the latter because the brand's latest 4K TV has captured our attention. Officially called as the Xiaomi Mi TV 2S, this new device boasts of a 48-inch 4K display screen in a 9.9mm thick aluminium frame. This thinness of the TV seems impossible but the Chinese company was able to make it a reality.
