Xiaomi has finally introduced the new version of its custom Android based ROM. The latest iteration is Miui 9. Before the announcement, Xiaomi promised a more fluid, more optimized and more elegant user interface. Now we know how it will look like. In this article, I am listing most notable changes and additional features of MIUI 9.

MIUI 9 Features

Dynamic Resource Allocation

For improved performance, the MIUI 9 has Dynamic Resource Allocation to allocate priority to in-use App. So the app in use will get resource before the app in the background. It also added several optimization to boost the performance.

Dynamic Resource Allocation

Now the app opens faster than ever before. It has optimized haptic feedback, intelligent CPU acceleration, and optimized thread scheduling.

It will also present diverse content related to the interests of the user.
