Out with the old and in with the new: users of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 can now participate in the rollout of the new Xiaomi MIUI 9 Global Stable update and gain all-new features, the latest security and lightning-fast speeds.
MIUI 9 Global Stable Update Announced at Redmi Y1 Launch
Xiaomi India confirmed at the Redmi Y1 launch event that they would be releasing the MIUI 9 Global Stable update on November 3rd for all users of Redmi Note 4/ 4X, Mi Mix 2 and Mi Max 2 in India. The update will be available for other devices in later phases.
The new update marks great improvements, and today—as promised—that update was released to the public, which means you can now follow these steps to get the new MIUI 9 for yourself.
What You Need to Know About the New Update
The new update will do away with old versions such as MIUI 8, replacing it with version MIUI 126.96.36.199.NCFMIEI. The update is roughly 266MB in size, brings about the latest security patch, and is already being called “lightning fast.”

Unlike MIUI 8, which featured major design changes, MIUI 9 mostly develops system speed and functionality. There are, however, a few new features to get very excited about:
- Split Screen Mode
- Smart Assistant
