There's a request for alpha testers on MIUI forums for a Nougat build of MIUI 8:

Who knows how much time will pass until this gets through all the testing phases and becomes a stable release, good enough for a daily driver... But it's exciting nonetheless :)

The alpha ROM will be released next week for all accepted alpha testers. Of course, a stable version is surely still several months ahead. Still, it's great to know that Nougat is coming :)

Sorry, you don't have the permission to access this thread.

Who is the chosen one
Anakin Skywalker or Harry Potter are the chosen one, depending on who you ask XD

Seriously though, it's because the time to apply for alpha testing expired today, I guess that's why that thread got closed. Perhaps we'll soon see some advance on Nougat for our Mi5.

Has anyone installed it yet? How's it looking?

I'm interested in how some of Nougat's improvements are in our Mi 5:

- App installs should be significantly faster
- Also (and I realize we'll need a Nougat update to test this) the app optimization step after an update should be a lot faster
