Xiaomi is all set to release its MIUI 9 custom software in India next week. The company has scheduled a press event in India on November 2 where it’ll officially announce MIUI 9 roll out for the country. It’s been a few days since Xiaomi is teasing its November 2 launch on social media with different hashtags like #LightningFast and #YourBestSelfie. Putting an end to all the speculations once and for all, Xiaomi chief Manu Kumar Jain decided to cut the suspense and revealed that MIUI 9 is coming to India on November 2.

However, if we take a closer look at what Manu Kumar Jain had to say on Twitter, MIUI 9 may not be the only surprise waiting. His tweet reads: “Yes! You guessed it right. Surprise #1: Global MIUI 9 is coming to India on 2nd Nov. Are you excited? #MIUI9 #LightningFast,” implying that Xiaomi definitely has more to announce next week in addition to its custom ROM. Previously in a separate tweet, Jain dropped a few hints with regards to the launch of a selfie smartphone using the hashtag #YourBestSelfie.

Recently, two mysterious Xiaomi phones bearing the model numbers MEE7 and MET7 appeared on a Chinese certification website TENAA. Both the phones seem identical in terms of design and overall specifications. Interestingly, one of the handsets clearly shows the dual selfie camera on the front. Since Xiaomi is boasting of a selfie camera phone to be launched in India next week, the possibility is that it could be the same device with either of the different storage options or two. We are expecting more details as the launch nears.
