The Mi 5 was launched back in February 2016 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 7. In March this year, the company updated the handset with MIUI 9.5 on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. The arrival of MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the Mi 5 comes along with a list of full-screen gestures.

Apart from the system-level changes, MIUI 10 brings AI-backed Portrait mode that blurs the background on portrait shots using software tweaks. The preloaded Clock and Notes app have also been upgraded. Xiaomi has additionally offered a new Recents view that stacks all the recent apps in the form of cards - inspired by the Notes app.
