Xiaomi has started rolling out the MIUI 9.2 Global ROM based on Android 7.0 Nougat for the Redmi 5A smartphone. Users can expect to receive over-the-air notification on their handsets or via the Updater app soon. In order to update, users can check for MIUI Global Stable ROM V9.2.1.0.NCKMIEK in the app. The Chinese company confirmed the MIUI 9 Global ROM rollout for the smartphone in a forum post and posted the major highlights of the latest update. Earlier, on Wednesday, Xiaomi had listed all 40 devices that are eligible for the MIUI 9 update, including the Redmi 5, on Weibo.

Based on the changelog that Xiaomi has posted, the MIUI 9.2 brings several changes for the Redmi 5A. Major highlights, specific to the smartphone, include Add to favorites icon adjustments, simplified design for virus scan result page, and hiding free and incompatible themes in the list of the purchased items. Additionally, Mi Mover will now support data migration restarting, which will help restore data migration on a new smartphone, even in case of interruption.

To download via the OTA update, users need to patiently wait for a notification. They can alternatively even check in their Updater app, to see if the update has arrived or not. If the update is still unavailable, users can also choose to manually download the update either via flashing using the Fastboot Method or Recovery ROM method. To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A had launched with MIUI 9 back in October.

MIUI 9 is the latest version of Xiaomi's custom UI interface which was unveiled in July 2017. Some of the new features of MIUI 9 include faster app load times, new design elements, lock screen shortcuts, split-screen feature, and more. Xiaomi claims to have optimised the system to enable faster app loading and boost performance.

Some of the other highlights of MIUI 9 include Smart Assistant which can be accessed by swiping up from the home screen, a smart app launcher that suggests apps to launch based on the screen. And finally, its image search feature which can distinguish between photos based on the keywords you enter.
