MIUI 12

Xiaomi finally unveiled their latest MIUI 12 update to the Xiaomi smartphone ecosystem, which is based on Android 10. This time, it boasts on enhanced privacy features along with a “lifelike” system design.

MIUI 12

Reinforced Privacy Protection

MIUI 12 gives the user much stronger controls over permissions, which is essential when it comes to the apps in a smartphone. Moving forward, when individual apps ask for permissions, users will be presented with more options such as “While using the app” and “Notify”.

Building on Android’s rigorous permission control over location, MIUI 12 will ahve stricter controls when apps request sensitive permissions. In addition to location, permissions to access camera, microphone, contacts, call history, calendar and storage are only allowed under “While using the app” mode. MIUI 12 also protects the user’s privacy when sharing photos. This is done by removing location information and metadata before the items are sent.

Nature-Inspired Design and Animations

MIUI 12 is totally revamped from the ground up. There are now system-wide core scene animations that are fully refreshed with system level technical changes. With Mi Render Engine, MIUI 12 creates an ultra-smooth UI experience. Powered by Mi Physics Engine, the elegant motion of icons simulates a 3D curve that resembles real-life motion trajectory. From the elegant opening and closing of apps to the smooth switching between apps, every detail mirrors a refreshing design methodology inspired by nature. With nuanced system animations, MIUI 12 introduces a lifelike OS experience where every detail becomes tangibly real. 

The newly introduced “Super Wallpaper” takes cosmic aesthetics to a new level with stunning reconstructions of iconic planetary landforms based on NASA’s official imagery. Super wallpapers combine Always-on display, Home screen, and Lock screen into an exciting space mission, revealing new parts of distant planets as the user makes their way through the system. With Super Wallpaper, MIUI 12 becomes a window into the transient splendor of the universe.

New features and improvements

  • Multitasking

MIUI 12 introduces global floating windows. When the user navigates the system using full screen gestures, floating windows can facilitate multitasking and save the trouble of constantly switching between apps.

  • Casting

MIUI 12 enhanced the screen casting, where users can now start casting documents, apps, videos, and games with a single tap. Multitasking is also supported here: the windows that are being cast can be minimized at any time. This saves you battery power and hides sensitive information from appearing on external monitors.

  • Ultra Battery Saver

MIUI 12 supports an Ultra battery saver mode. With this feature on, the most power-consuming features will be restricted to extend the phone’s standby time and reduce power consumption when the phone’s battery is running low. Calls, messages, and network connectivity won’t be affected and will remain fully usable. 

  •  Dark Mode

MIUI 12 comes with a beautiful new look with enhanced Dark Mode. With a darker color palette for system backgrounds, system apps, and third-party apps alike, Dark Mode provides an outstanding viewing experience in low-light environments. When Dark Mode is on, the user can also choose to adjust contrast automatically to match the ambient light when screen brightness is reduced. Dark Mode also lowers power consumption and helps to ease eye strain. 

  • App Drawer

Xiaomi’s Poco Launcher has proven to be well-received by global users. Its signature feature – the App drawer – now comes to MIUI 12. If the user turns it on, all apps will go there, which will make the Home screen cleaner and neater. The user can also group apps automatically according to the user’s preferences to find the needed app in just a few swipes.
