Here are the first features of the Xiaomi MIUI 12 (photos)


MIUI 11 was released on September 24, 2019, and on March 23, 2020, the company has announced that the development of MIUI 11 has stopped to make way for the development of MIUI 12. Who would have thought that MIUI 12 would arrive so soon after just 174 days! According to the past rules, MIUI iterations generally arrive in August-September, but we already have what it could be the first features of the next Xiaomi user interface. It has been extracted from the first version of MIUI 12 and published by a developer in the Chinese forum of the brand. In this post, we will tell you the most interesting once that will come to your Xiaomi mobile.

Remember that this is not an official publication by the brand, so some of the features may not arrive with the final version, something similar to what happens with the Developer Preview of Android 11. Anyway, there are some that have almost guaranteed arrival and are the ones that we bring you in this post.

MIUI 12 new navigation bar and gestures


MIUI’s global system animation has slowly lagged behind other brands. Today, the old version animation is unstable, inconsistent and uncomfortable. But fortunately, we have a complete change with the upcoming release of MIUI 12.

New camera UI

According to the source, the camera UI will be completely modified. With the continuous enhancement of lens modules, there is more and more operation that users can do, so a good camera UI has become imperative.

Perfect dark mode

Today’s stable version of MIUI 11 has a dark mode switch, but has some lacks. MIUI 12 will continue to optimize the dark mode experience. System applications will have better support and MIUI 12 interfaces will offer a perfect dark mode experience.


New notification system

How to manage more and more push notifications? MUI has already tried. But in the face of more and more pushes, it seems to be weak. MIUI12 will bring a whole new notification management system.

    I don’t like this new Miui 12 animation, really, I don’t like at all. I prefer the old Miui 11 animation.

    Nice, I like it. It’s more consistent with android stock now. And that navbar is really helpful especially to lifting up the keyboard.

    Oh, come on!
    The actual navigation gestures are great. WTF they are copying Apple with that trigger down the screen? And the gesture for switching between aps? Why? The MIUI 11 gesture to switch apps are good and intuitive. It is much harder to reach the button of the screen with your thumb to witch between apps, then work with actual switching method…

    I don’t think they are getting rid of the current gesture. It is more likely that will be an alternative for the people who don’t enjoy the current one

    I hope they will put an appdrawer on miui 12

    I really hope the navbar will be optional. The current gestures work perfectly for me (unlike battery life) and take up LITERALLY zero space on the screen. I would not like it if they forced the bar on us. In fact, that could be the final straw for me in terms of Miui annoyances that will likely make me turn to Samsung. (In my country I see used Galaxy Note 10’s sell for about 500 bucks, pretty much the same I paid for my Mix 3)

    I think you should try the Poco Launcher, it’s on play store. Pretty much the same as the normal Miui one, but with app drawer….

    I have MI 9T also. Look in Settings>Homescreen > Homescreen settings.
    Also, I am on beta ROM 😀
    So, it will arrive on MIUI11 for sure.
