Redmi 2 / Redmi 2 Pro – Android Update Marshmallow / MIUI 8
Xiaomi delivered on its promises and began the trial period of the MIUI 8 beta, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Links to the ROM are available on the manufacturer's official blog. However, Redmi 2 and Redmi 2 Pro devices have not entered the list of devices that can enjoy the new UI in the testing phase.
Unfortunately, the new ROM is specific to Chinese devices and there is not yet an international version of the software. But even though it's still in the testing phase, accessing the MIUI forum can already see what the new interface looks like.
We hope this new trial version will be more stable, and more Xiaomi devices will be supported, including Redmi 2 and Redmi 2 Pro. The global version of the software is still being tested.
Among other things, MIUI 8 includes new features like carousel wallpapers, integrated photo and video editing tools, power saving mode, increased security, new sources and better multitasking management.
