The second batch, arriving in late July, include Redmi Note 4X/Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi Max, Mi Max Prime, Mi Max 2, Redmi 4X, Redmi Note 5A, Redmi Note 5A Prime, Redmi 5, Redmi 4A, Redmi 5A, and Redmi 5 Plus.
The third batch will receive update in the first half of August and will bring the global beta to the Mi 3, Mi 4, Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm, and Redmi 3S/3X.
Getting your hands on the update
Users enrolled in the MIUI 9 beta can access the MIUI 10 global beta by visiting the “updater” tool. Other users are in a bit of a bind, as you’ll need to download the ROM as part of the process. Unfortunately, Xiaomi’s ROM downloads page has been offline for several weeks now.
The new update will deliver a portrait mode, a new recents menu, and redesigned volume/brightness sliders. Other notable features include nature-inspired notifications, a countdown timer with nature sounds, and India-specific tweaks.
