Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) recently announced, though without going into detail, that it will be letting some Xiaomi Mi 4 users in China test Windows 10 on their smartphones.
According to the former Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) exec, the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announcement is just an experimental program being handled directly by the software giant which will be working directly with the Mi fan community in China.
The plan is for Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) to release a version of Windows 10 Technical Preview, which the company will be making specifically for the test program and for the Mi 4 smartphone, directly to select Mi 4 power users who choose to partake in the program.
“This Windows 10 build will not be running on top of Android nor be available as a dual-boot option. [This] small number of Mi 4 power users […] will have to manually re-flash their Mi 4 devices with this Windows 10 ROM, in the same way they would re-flash other Android ROMs,” Barra wrote on his Google+ page.
However, he clarified that Xiaomi is committed to the Android ecosystem and the company is “moving ahead full steam building many exciting new Android-based features and services.” This experimental program is part of Xiaomi’s support to users who want to try new things.
According to Barra, more details will be announced by Microsoft in the coming months about the program that will only be available in China.
“Through a new program with Xiaomi, one of the top smartphone distributors in the world, a select group of Xiaomi Mi 4 power users will be invited to help test Windows 10 and contribute to its future release later this year. These power users will have the opportunity to download the Windows 10 Technical Preview – installing it and providing their feedback to Microsoft,” Microsoft wrote in its announcement for Windows 10’s launch this summer.
