Hey MIUIers,

This year Xiaomi India ventured outside of its home market, China, and into India. For many months now, it’s been holding pretty much weekly flash sales in partnership with Flipkart, the biggest retailer in the subcontinent. And apparently those have been going quite well.

Since the unveiling of MIUI 6 on August 16, 2014, MI has released MIUI 6 developer version and stable version for Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi Pad and Redmi Note 4G, and MIUI 6 special edition for Mi 2/2S/2A.

We have been working on MIUI 6 for other devices as well. However, MIUI 6 porting development takes more time than we expected due to the large number of devices and lots of research work on Android L. We are really sorry for having kept you waiting so long.

MIUI 6 Release Dates

Here’s the latest schedule:
1. Most Redmi phones will get MIUI 6 based on Android 4.4
2. Redmi 1S 3G W/C might get MIUI 6 based on Android L directly, so the release time might be delayed
3. MIUI 6 special edition for Mi 2/2S/2A is not perfect yet, so we’ve decided to develop it based on Android L later.
