Xiaomi has introduced MIUI 12 at an event in China earlier this week. The new version of MIUI promises smooth performance with the help of features like improved visual effects, new animations & wallpapers, privacy improvements, improved Xiaomi’s AI assistant with AI calling, updated dark mode, and multi-tasking features, etc.

Xiaomi has released the closed beta program for MIUI 12 and users in China will be able to test it to provide feedback on the development of new UI.

Let’s check out the key features of MIUI 12 here.

MIUI 12 Features

The latest version of the company’s s next-gen UI comes with a number of new features and improvements over its predecessor.

Dark mode 2.0

The new customized dark mode is now supported by 42 built-in apps, 20 mainstream apps, and several third-party apps as well. The new dark mode has font-weight adjusted dynamically to reduce glare and screen brightness is also automatically adjusted.

New Animation

It also comes with a self-developed physical animation engine that offers new animation effects like perfect rounded corners, advanced color mixing, real-time blur, and physical space motion.

Privacy Improvements

New privacy features include three new systems- Flare, Barbed Wire, and Mask. The Flare checks which apps have access to camera, mic, or location. The Barbed Wire checks ask only once, allow every time, or reject option when any app asks for access. While the Mask will prevent untrusted apps from accessing contacts and call logs.

AI Calling

The new AI calling is for hearing impaired so that they can communicate with others with a call. This feature can also answer spam calls and you can set other callers to be answered by AI as well so they don’t disturb you. You can view the call log later.
