Xiaomi has been proactive in bringing out its user interface updates, and this June we saw the Chinese beta of the MIUI 10 launching. Following that, Xiaomi MIUI testers have been receiving updates for the new ROM, and the last in the line was MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.7.19. Now, there’s a follow-up to that version, and it is reaching about 25 devices. Here’s what we know.
MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM: New Update to Fix Issues
The MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.7.19 had come less than a week ago, with bug fixes for the clock app, file manager app, and the LED notification. It had also addressed camera issues in Redmi Note 5 Pro, where the blur effect was not getting saved in cloud-synced photos. Now, the MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.7.26 Update has rolled out to all the devices that had received the previous update, and this one aims to fix bugs further. Among the issues it brings an end to are the problems with font display in the notification bar, the unlock issues with the fingerprint scanner, and front camera bugs for Redmi Note 5 Pro.
The fingerprint scanner had a problem in the MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM versions until now, where unlocking the device with the fingerprint reader would fail to unlock the App Lock. In the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the UI was getting stuck sometimes, and the front camera wouldn’t start. The notification bar had a bug where fonts were spilling out of it or getting stretched wider than the standard. All these issues will be taken care of by the latest MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.7.26 update, which is already available over the air (OTA).
