Xiaomi has made quite the entry into the Indian smartphone market. Backed by former Google Android hotshot Hugo Barra, the company is now one of the top names in the smartphone business in the country. However, the company just started out in India.
While the recently released Xiaomi Mi 3 handset from the company has been its biggest highlight, the same can be said about its newly introduced MIUI interface that's creating so much noise. The new UI is actually a fresh take on the kind of UI we see normally for Android phones.
The MIUI interface has been developed via Xiaomi Tech, and is basically a stock and aftermarket firmware meant for smartphones and tablets. The big difference here is that the interface features a heavily modified and hard-coded user interface.
This new hard-coded user interface takes away the Android app drawer, while visual comparisons can be easily made with Apple's iOS and Samsung's TouchWiz UI. But most importantly, it offers that fresh new look at Android that the OS has been wanting for so long.
But this is the MIUI V5. However, in that context, you will be happy to know that Xiaomi is already on the verge of releasing the next iteration of the interface called MIUI V6. And while details are few and far, there are already a few leaks that show us what it could look like eventually.
So here's a look at the top leaked screenshots for the MIUI V6 that could come true in the upcoming months.
The first one in the list looks like its a screenshot of the new interface's phone book offering. The entire thing is currently in Chinese, but it can be seen that the phone book offering might offer some heightened features while keeping the overall layout same.
This one primarily points at the kind of colorful applications we might be getting with the new version of the MIUI. The one in the image probably shows off the default music player in the phone with some different layout.
This concept points at the home screen window for the new MIUI. Things here look more or less the same, although some images in the past have even pointed toward the possibility of tilting icons. But we are yet find out more.
Here's a look at the settings panel for the new MIUI. It's actually showing off the details that you usually find when you tap on the About Phone section. Again, things look more or less the same.
The last one in the list shows off some kind of a social networking offering that will come alongside the interface. Again, it's in Chinese so we don't know. But still it looks like something that would help you share photos and content between friends. Maybe it's a Xiaomi-special social app, or maybe not. But we shall find out about that soon.
