Xiaomi is not unfamiliar with offering smartphones with a large number of pre-installed applications. However, the situation would have been significantly improved if these were only native applications. In addition, phones contain an abundance of unnecessary third-party applications. And the situation drastically deteriorated for some recently released smartphones.
MIUI Polska writer and code investigator Kacper Skrzypek noted on Twitter that some versions of MIUI now include three pre-installed browsers. Therefore, if you purchase a Xiaomi phone today, it is probable that your device will include a greater number of superfluous applications than ever before.
XIAOMI MIUI AND BLOATWARES APPEAR TO HAVE A UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP.
Consequently, some Xiaomi smartphones with special variants of MIUI now come pre-installed with Opera Browser. Others with phones running identical versions of MIUI support this claim. According to them, their smartphones contain more unnecessary applications than ever before.
This MIUI modification applies specifically to Xiaomi phones with an Indian version of the ROM. However, this does not imply that additional bloatware will be present on a device with global ROMs. According to Skrzypek, the Opera application is now also included in global ROMs!
However, there is some positive news for those utilizing a Xiaomi device with a global MIUI ROM. You will be able to uninstall the unnecessary software and clear up space. However, you are out of luck if you are in Indian ROM. In this iteration of MIUI, the Opera browser cannot be removed.
Want to know which Xiaomi smartphones are affected globally? The tweet indicates that the Opera app is absent from the global ROMs of Russia, Taiwan, and Europe. Therefore, if you intend to purchase a Xiaomi smartphone in these markets, you will likely not encounter the triple browser MIUI bloatware.
