A couple of weeks ago, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi officially unveiled its latest MIUI 12 system. At the launch of this new system, a couple of new features were unveiled. However, we all knew that the company was not going to discuss all that the MIUI 12 has to offer. As of now, a good number of Xiaomi and Redmi phones already have the public beta of this system. In addition to the functional features mentioned at the press conference, here are MIUI 12 top four most interesting salient features
MIUI 12 Minimalist mode
Although Xiaomi did not see the need to discuss this feature, MIUI 12 minimalist mode better serve older users. In the minimalist mode, MIUI 12 uses a large font globally, and the desktop application is a loose three-column layout. At the same time, the application icon and name are large thus it is easier to view them.
You can also add frequently-used contacts on the screen. This means that you can call directly by clicking on the avatar, making it easier to find contacts.
In addition, the handwriting input method and virtual keys that are more suitable for the operation habits of the elderly. In this mode, app downloading requires a second confirmation. This is to avoid multiple and unnecessary downloads from an elderly person.
When downloading an application, a second confirmation will be made through the pop-up window to prevent the elderly from being installed a bunch of applications.
MIUI 12 Calendar
The calendar comes with a whole new design. Users can now rotate the screen in the week view state and it will enter a horizontal weekly view. This horizontal view state will effectively display the weekly schedule without obstructions. This new design also gives a better visual effect on card schedules.
The MIUI 12 SMS two categories: main SMS and promotion SMS. The former summarizes notification information such as express delivery information, bank receipts, and expenditures, while the latter summarizes merchant offers and coupon issuance.
This system brings an easier way to view air quality and short-term rainfall information at a glance. For both features, you can see them on a 3D map display.
Which of these features do you find interesting? Personally, I think the Minimalist Mode is important especially the second confirmation during downloads. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below
