Hello Mi Fans & MIUIers!
We are so so so happy today! Because it’s a double BIRTHDAY!!!
Our first phone ever, the Mi 1 was launched today, on August 16, 2011. Seven years ago. Maybe some of you remember it?
1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera and 1930 mAh battery. Back then, Xiaomi already started giving users that long battery life we all love, as most phones came with 1400 or 15000 mAh!
Analysts were pessimistic about the Mi 1 launch,
some considered Xiaomi naive and with less than 50 percent of chances to succeed.
And look where we are now!
With a strong support of more than 500,000 Mi Fans,
40% percent from overseas,
not only they believed in Xiaomi but contributed and helped improve our MIUI with their valuable feedbacks.
Alex, our Community Manager from Spain shared us this treasure!
Wait, wasn’t it a double birthday? You’re right! MIUI was born just one year before the Mi 1,
with 100 supporters at the beginning, the MI User Interface came to life and many others were so attracted and just had to try it out -
it didn’t matter if it was only in Chinese back then.
MIUI Global version is now available in 75 languages, around 190 million active users are using it on a monthly basis worldwide.
Getting nostalgic with the MIUI v1 screen!
Oh, these icons!
Make a birthday wish for Mi 1 and MIUI,
