    The rumoured devices which are expected to receive the update include Redmi Note 3, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi 3, Redmi 3S, Mi 4s, Mi 4c, Mi 4i, Mi 5, Mi Max, Mi Note, and Mi Pad 2. A few recently launched devices like Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus were not mentioned in this list. However, we believe that, more devices will be added to this list once Xiaomi officially announces MIUI 9.

    Multi-Window support

    The MIUI 9 update is expected to bring support for multi-window, something similar to the one seen on Samsung's smartphones. This feature allows your smartphone to run two apps side-by-side.

    Quick-reply from notifications

    Similar to Apple's quick-reply from the notifications, the MIUI 9 is rumoured to allow users to reply text messages from the notifications itself. Instant messaging apps like WhatsApp, Hike, and Telegram will also support this feature.

    Optimised Doze mode

    Google, with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, unveiled the new Doze mode to provide additional battery life by killing the background apps. The MIUI 9 may bring an optimised version of this feature similar to what Google did with the Doze mode on Android 7.0 Nougat.
