Xiaomi Tests MIUI 10 Based On Android Q

Going by the screenshots shared by the executive on Weibo, Xiaomi tests the MIUI based on Android Q. Apparently, this update bundles the July Android security patch hinting that it is the Android Q Beta 5. It also appears to be under testing on the Mi 9 Transparent Edition.

Notably, the Chinese company is also working on MIUI 11 to make it a unique custom ROM. Previous claims suggested that it will debut alongside Android Q. The latest screenshots reveal that the company might offer a new Android experience via the new iteration of MIUI 10 initially.

The interface in the screenshots appear to be similar to what we have seen in the existing MIUI 10 builds. We can expect the latest iteration of the custom ROM from Xiaomi to include a new dark mode and feature new gesture offering a new Android Q experience, which is in line with the standard version of the OS.


Android Q Roadmap

Last month, the company announced the Android Q update roadmap. It confirmed that the Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi K20, Mi 8 series, Mi Mix 2 and Mi Mix 3 will get the update. The company is yet to rolllout the update in its home market China and it is yet to reveal when the update will be rolled out to the global markets.

What We Think

Given that the MIUI 10 update based on Android Q brings a slew of new features, we can expect this one to be appreciated by users. We will get better clarity regarding the same after the update's rollout.
