Xiaomi, the 4th largest manufacturer of smartphones in the world and Microsoft, the software leader in the world, have partnered to bring Windows 10 Mobile to Xiaomi Mi4. The partnership was announced earlier this year and after months of development and testing, the ROM is finally out.
You need to be registered for Microsoft’s Windows Insider program to download the ROM. Alternatively, you can register on MIUI forum and download the ROM here.
The ROM is currently available only for the LTE model of Mi4. The LTE version never made it out to India. So folks in India have to wait a little longer before they can try out a new Operating System on their smartphone.
This is the first time that an Android phone will be officially running on Windows Mobile. With Android-powered smartphones outnumbering Windows Mobile devices, it’s surely a unique experiment. If it succeeds then it won’t be long before we can flash Windows Mobile ROM to our beloved Android smartphones and breathe new life into it.
