Operating System & Service
The operating system of Xiaomi is called MIUI and is currently up to version 8, which is based off Android 7.0 Marshmallow and in developer testing. There are two types of Xiaomi official ROMS—China ROM and Global ROM. But if you are a foreign buyer, we will suggest you to buy global ROM because only global ROM includes Google apps straight on it and doesn’t include some of the Chinese specific apps like on the China ROM. The MIUI website has ROM downloads available, as well as an active English discussion forum.
In addition, one of the most important thing you should make clear before purchase is to check with LTE bands the phone supports. Here recommends a great tool to check—willmyphonework.net.
The ROM on Xiaomi Phones (international version) sell on GearBest.com supports OTA and is multi languages. Unlocked for Worldwide use. However, for your safety, we still suggest you to ensure whether your local area network is compatible before purchase.
