Smartphones produced by the Chinese giant also include the popular MIUI superstructure, which is full of features. Currently, the latest generation is MIUI 12, and if you've ever researched the settings and specifically the version of the superstructure, you may have come across a cluster of characters that you may not have understood.
You might be surprised, but each letter has its justification, and even if you assumed something like that, you probably didn't find any connection between them. We will explain everything in detail in this article.
Different versions of MIUI
To begin with, we will briefly summarize that, like other extensions or operating systems, MIUI has its beta ROM a stable ROM. Although global beta ROM also existed in the past, currently this closed testing belongs only to the domestic Chinese market.
Whether you see the Stable version or the beta version behind your superstructure version is the ROM version. Of course, if you have MIUI 11, the version will be 11, if 12, it will be 12. The numbers after the generation designation only indicate the update version.
Now, we come to the part where we talk about the middle ground. As an example, let's take our editorial Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite and Mi 10, which run on the latest available software.
The characters in parentheses in the case of the Mi 8 Lite model are QTDMIXM. Let's start nicely from the beginning. First character - Q, indicates the version of the Android operating system. Since there is Android 10 in the smartphone, we see the designation Q. Next we can see two letters TD. These are the designations of the Mi 8 Lite smartphone.
Now we come to the distribution of the smartphone and the region of your ROM. Our smartphone comes from global distribution, so we have it there MI. In the case of the Mi 10 model, we can see the EU, which means the official European version of the smartphone.
In addition, there are other versions of Xiaomi smartphones, namely Chinese CN, Indonesia ID, India IN and for Russia is RU. The last two letters XM indicate the lock status of the SIM card, in our case unlocked.
