Xiaomi at its event in China today introduced the Mi 5X and Mi AI Speaker. The Chinese device maker also revealed features of its MIUI 9.

MIUI is the Xiaomi's Android based software for its smartphones, tablets and TVs. It was Xiaomi's first product, introduced back in 2010, and Xiaomi says seven years later, the ROM is used in 55 languages, 142 countries with 2.8 billion active users.

MIUI's previous iteration MIUI 8 got a visual refresh, and with MIUI 9, the focus is on refining the user interface, and adding some new features, along with system optimizations for a fluid experience.

Xiaomi says in MIUI 9 the apps will launch quickly than before, thanks to the optimized thread scheduling and CPU acceleration. It is getting a new allocation model, wherein the system prioritizes resources for in-use apps. The haptic feedback has also been improved.

As expected, the multi-window mode is included in MIUI 9, allowing you to run two apps side by side for multi-tasking. The icons has got a visual refresh, and now looks more modern.

MIUI 9 will bring a smart assistant that lets you easily search through apps, notes, images, schedules or any other information you're looking for. There's also a new universal search engine, that lets you find images of a particular person, location, events, expression or photos taken at a specific location.

It also has a new smart app launcher, that suggests apps to launch based on context in your conversation.
