The Xiaomi Mi 9 is equipped with tons of extra features including game turbo mode, dark mode, fingerprint animation, dynamic wallpaper, and more. Notably, these were exclusively built for Xiaomi Mi 9. But not anymore, since the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has decided to roll out these features in most of the older devices from Xiaomi.
Li Weixing, the General manager of Xiaomi Internet, yesterday used Weibo to share a table confirming the list of features lined up to roll out in other devices. The table also contained the names of the older phones getting these features and the time they will receive it. Here is the image shared by Li and below is the English translation of the table contents.

Note that the update will first arrive in the devices running the MIUI development versions before rolling out to the stable user-interface. You can get these updates by mid-April if you are running development versions of MIUI but that comes with a risk of bugs and functionality issues. However, to get hands on the stable version, you have to wait longer but the update will be bug-free without no risk to your device whatsoever.
