MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM
Designed For Full Screen Experience
The best full screen experience
In MIUI 10, we removed all elements that could break the visual integrity of a full screen device.
There’s no segmentation brought by divisions and conflicting colors here, everything important is
presented in the form af neat cards with rounded corners which rhyme with hardware elements.
Full screen gestures
A better and more intuitive way to interact with a full screen device

We removed all unnecessary UI elements and visual clutter from the Notification shade to let the
content take the front stage.

MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM features
Xiaomi has designed the MIUI 10 Global ROM by keeping four major elements in mind, namely speed, design, sound, and the AI Portrait feature. The new ROM includes lock-free critical path and codependent prioritising as the two system-level optimisations. “This ensures that the overall smoothness of MIUI has increased over 10 percent of the predecessor version,” said Sudeep Sahu, Product Manager, Xiaomi India, at the conference.
After performance, MIUI 10 has full screen display gestures that make it a better option for devices with newer aspect ratios and thin-bezel displays. These full screen gestures are available across the custom experience. For instance, users can swipe from bottom to go to the home screen, swipe from the edges to go back to the previous screen, or swipe from the bottom and hold it to go to the Recents view.
“Once you start using gestures on phone be it on applications and especially the MIUI 10 – you just can’t go back,” Sahu stated.
MIUI 10 also includes the new Recents view that is inspired by the MIUI Notes app. It stacks all the cards on one screen, and users can swipe vertically, instead of horizontally, to see all the recent apps. Swiping one of the available cards removes them from the Recents view, while a long press on one of the available cards opens more options.
Further, Xiaomi has restructured the whole layout and regrouped the items based on their types. There are also new system apps, including Weather and Calendar. Likewise, notifications panel has been revamped to look fine on a full screen device. The default Notes app has also received an option to let users take voice memos.
