In recent times, we have been getting a lot of leaks and speculations of the upcoming MIUI 12 UI. After Xiaomi officially announced that it will no longer develop MIUI 11 for Chinese ROM, the speculations grew stronger. There are reports that MIUI 12 beta will be available in September. The stable version will roll out in December. Furthermore, we recently saw a list of devices to get the MIUI 12 update. In all of these, Xiaomi is yet to officially confirm anything regarding the MIUI 12 UI except its existence.
MIUI 12 UI brings some design tweaks
Nevertheless, the leaks will not stop and things are getting more interesting. This morning, XDA Developers showed a series of screenshots that gives us a first look at the changes in Xiaomi’s upcoming MIUI UI.
It is an itinerary for Xiaomi to upload beta versions of its various apps to the Chinese MIUI Community forums. In a new set of uploads, the MiSettings APK is quite different from the older versions. XDA has reasons to believe that these new settings are most likely what we will see on the MIUI 12 UI.
This means that Xiaomi may have (un)knowingly given away some tweaks in the upcoming MIUI 12 system. It is common for OEMs to show you a bit of what it is working on. Thus, we will not be surprised if the latest information is a deliberate “leak” from Xiaomi.
From a series of screenshots, we can see that MIUI makes changes with a few tweaks in the appearance of some features. The screenshots show refresh rate, focus mode, screen time and advance settings. Looking at the new interface, you will observe that it is generally darker than the old. The grey interface of the current system is not in the screenshots. It appears that Xiaomi is working on a system-wide dark mode for its latest system.
