xiaomi also known for as the apple of china has a reason behind it which was its design language and its OS having much of the similarity with IOS which is the without app drawer interface.
xiaomi recently update it devices with its new versions of custom os for china and custom UI on top of kit kat for their google certified devices and now new announcements are made by Xiaomi about its upcoming MIUI 7.
this time Xiaomi had partnered with AOKP (android open kong project ) Rom developers which is a custom rom maker from china and this news was officially confirmed from AOKP official blog that they will be partnering with Xiaomi to make MIUI 7 based on android 5.1 for its next flagship device probably MI5
according to AOKP as many other rom builder are joining with other smart phone manufacturers they have also got a chance to do so directly pointing at cyanogen partnership and one plus partnership with paranoid rom builders .
the blog said the new MIUI 7 will have features from famous custom roms like cyanogen,paranoid,omni and probably the AOKP rom. it has been said they are making a new immersive user interface that will submerge android users in their own world and thus a few months after usage, the UI of each Mi 5 phone will be different – personalised to the traits of it’s individual user.
this MIUI 7 development is codenamed mas MIKANGY and MarcLandis is the leading this project and Zaphod will be overlooking the product development
the AOKP developers had also said that this is entirely a new project but still they would be working on their AOKP rom and update it with different builds.they also said that even before Kirt McMaster is able to snatch Android from Google, and of course we have a few inside men in form of Roman and Tom to pull that off. From the rate at which development is going on, I believe this can very well be true which means that they are also working to take control from google and give to the users as cyanogen is trying.
