MIUI 6 UI Leaked!!! Again !!!

xiaomi miui v6

Xiaomi fans around the world are waiting in anticipation for the launch of MIUI V6 tomorrow. If you don’t want any spoilers look away now as the following are leaked images of the new UI compared to V5.

I’m sure that many will agree that Xiaomi’s phones are great devices, and their custom ROM is excellent too, but the real weak point is the ancient, almost cartoonish UI. It has been year since Xiaomi have release an updated UI, and tomorrows MIUI 6 will be the most substantial yet!

The following images claim to show the new MIUI 6 UI compared to V5. The details we can gather from the images are that Xiaomi are going for a more modern “flat” UI which is currently trending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everything from the icons to the notification bar and menus has been given a fresh face in the new ROM.

Read our Xiaomi Mi4 first impressions now!

Unfortunately the images posted here are from Weibo and are of poor quality, the good news is that we only have to wait until tomorrow to see the new UI first hand. We will post details of MIUI 6 as soon as it is announced.
