We’ve already seen many renders and leaks regarding the upcoming MIUI Android skin, today another leak adds to the list. According to China-based site MyDrivers, Xiaomi could start rolling out the MIUI 9 update for its various supportive smartphones as soon as early July this year.

Just similar to MIUI 8 update, Xiaomi could release beta ROM first followed by stable version somewhere in August.
Xiaomi still have to confirm the names of devices receiving MIUI 9 update. But as per the recent leak, the following are the list of devices expected to get the latest MIUI firmware update – Mi 6, Mi 5c, Mi Mix, Mi Note 2, Mi 5s/ Plus, Mi 5, Mi 4C, Redmi Note 4/4X, Redmi 4/4A, Mi Pad 3 and Redmi 4X.
