Xiaomi has been briskly rolling out MIUI 10 Global Stable updates to its devices since the month of September. MIUI 10 Global brings a redesigned UI, new Recent apps menu, and AI pre-loading features. It was announced in June at the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 event. Most of the company’s 2018 phones have already received the Global Stable update, including flagships such as the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Xiaomi Mi 8, and the Xiaomi POCO F1. Recently, the MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM was released for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4/Note 4X. Now, the ROM is available for the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Xiaomi Redmi 5A.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 (device code-name: rosy) was launched in China in December 2017 as the successor to the Redmi 4/4X, and it arrived in India in March. It has already been succeeded by the Xiaomi Redmi 6. The Redmi 5’s list of specifications includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, 2GB/3GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB storage, 5.7-inch HD+ (1440×720) IPS LCD, 12MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing, and a 3,300mAh battery. It originally shipped with MIUI 9 on top of Android 7.1 Nougat.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A (device code-name: riva) is the successor of the Redmi 4A. It was launched in December 2017, and its list of specifications includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2GB/3GB of RAM with 16GB/32GB storage, 5-inch HD (1280×720) IPS LCD, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. The phone originally shipped with MIUI 9 on top of Android 7.1 Marshmallow.
The Redmi 5A’s MIUI 10 Global Stable build (MIUI 10.1.1.0) is also based on Android 7.1 Nougat instead of being based on Android Oreo. It has a file size of 1.3GB, and it can be downloaded here. As it’s a Recovery ROM, it can be flashed via the MIUI Updater app without requiring an unlocked bootloader. Users can also flash it via TWRP.
The general changelog for the MIUI 10 Global Stable update is noted below:
Designed for full screen experience
* All-new UI is tailored for full screen devices and lets the content take the front stage. (New design looks fresh and clean on older devices too!)
* Natural sound system
* You won’t get tired of natural and ever-changing sounds of the new MIUI.
* We simplified system sounds and applied smart filters, so you’ll hear something only when you need to.
* Ambient sounds of the forest, beach, drizzle, stove fire, and summer night will help you to relax and focus on what’s important.
* AI pre-loading
* With higher swipe response, MIUI feels smoother than ever in all the familiar places.
* Other improvements and optimizations
* AI brings Portrait mode to single camera devices! Blur the background on your portrait shots and look as gorgeous as you feel.
* Other system apps (including Clock and Notes) got a major revamp too!
