MIUI V5 based on Andorid 4.4 KitKat now in beta on the Xiaomi Mi3

Latest UPDATE : MIUI is already recruiting 50 Beta testers for this Friday’s release.

Xiaomi Mi3 owners will be happy to learn that MIUI V5 based on Android 4.4 KitKat is now undergoing beta tests!

Xiaomi owners have been able to enjoy higher than average specifications and frequent updates to the MIUI ROM, but still don’t have the luxury of running the latest build of Google’s open-source mobile operating system. This will soon change though as MIUI V5 based on KitKat is now undergoing beta tests in China on the flagship Xiaomi Mi3 (WCDMA 3G version pictured here).

In this case Xiaomi are slightly off the mark and follow Meizu in to the KitKat era, and aren’t likely to publicly realease Android 4.4 for the Mi3 until after the launch of the OnePlus One phone which does boast the latest Android build!
