Xiaomi to Load MiOS on Mi4, Drop Android

Chinese mobile phone maker Xiaomi has reportedly decided to move away from Android with the next flagship handset in its popular lineup.

According to a recent report from cnbeta, the company will launch its next Mi smartphone with the MiOS loaded on top, and not with Google’s Android platform. Apparently, the handset vendor is already testing the yet unannounced mobile operating system on the aforementioned device, though no further info on the matter has been provided.

As GizChina notes, Xiaomi is already loading its smartphones with a heavily customized version of Android, namely the MIUI, which is stripped of standard Google services and applications, and which also links users to Xiaomi’s own app store. What remains to be seen is whether the upcoming platform release will feature compatibility with Android applications, and whether Xiaomi will offer it for existing devices as well.
