TechCrunch writes that neither Microsoft nor Xiaomi has provided details of the Windows 10 trials but sources tell that this new software overrides the Android and turns the Xiaomi Mi 4 phone completely into a Windows 10 phone.

This switch isn’t some kind of dual boot option. This will be possible due a Windows based ROM. This ROM will be like customizing the Android phone completely with Windows 10 flavor and will allow native Windows 10 like experience on Android phones.

Microsoft is partnering with China’s Xiaomi and it should be noted that people in China are more inclined towards the customization of phones by installing ROMs.

Microsoft said that it is committed to release the software globally to all the users.
