Xiaomi started its gaming smartphone programme in 2018 and launched its first gaming smartphone as ‘Black Shark’. As the first version of the Black Shark was a massive success, Xiaomi launched another version as ‘Black Shark 2‘ back in 2019. The smartphone has all the flagship-level specs and features a gamer always crave for.
Since Black Shark is a gaming smartphone so instead of going for the basic MIUI, it opts for a more game centred UI. Keeping in mind the gamer’s perspective, a more enhanced and personalized UI was developed which was named as ‘JoyUI’.
Xiaomi announced the latest version of the UI which is called as ‘JoyUI 11‘ and it was confirmed that it will be launched by the end of April. The latest UI will be combined with several features from MIUI 11 for the Black Shark.
Since we are nearly at the end of April, Users are pretty excited and ready for the update. You don’t have to wait for more because Black Shark has started rolling out the first wave of the Android 10 based JoyUI 11 update. The update will be pushed for limited users since it is meant for initial testing. The size of the update is around 1.88GB with build version SKYW2004221OS00MQ0. It comes with all the latest features from Android 10. The stable update is scheduled for May 6, 2020, via OTA.
Along with the update for Black shark 2, the company also confirmed in a tweet that the update will also be made available for Black Shark Pro users. The first wave will be pushed to Black Shark Pro starting from April 30 and the stable global update will be launched on May 6, 2020, along with Black Shark 2.
The official tweet reads, “Finally what everyone have been asking for months is here, JOYUI 11. Today we will push the 1st wave to certain Black Shark 2 devices and from 30th April, the Black Shark Pro. This will be the initial test pushing. From 6th May we will start to push the OTA for everyone.”
The Black Shark 2 owners can check whether their phone has picked up the initial wave of the JoyUI 11 or not. And for the Black Shark Pro owners, they will have to wait for a few more days.
That’s all for the JoyUI 11. Let us know in the comments whether you could grab the update or not. Till then stay home and stay safe.
