MIUI 9 is the absolute latest iteration of Xiaomi’s UI overlay on top of Android. It was officially unveiled back in July when the Mi 5X got announced. Since that point, there have been many beta builds of the MIUI 9 Global ROM for supported devices, and now we’re thankfully very close to the stable version’s release.
It will likely begin rolling out to Xiaomi devices in India on the same day. The announcement was made via Twitter on the company’s special handle for MIUI in India, and was also retweeted by the Xiaomi India’s verified Twitter handle. Currently, the latest stable version of the interface is MIUI 8.

MIUI 9 comes with image search (by keywords depicting what is in the picture), a smart assistant (since the world obviously needs more of those), and a smart app launcher (which works based on screen content, so it will pop up Maps if you talk about going somewhere for example).
