Back in May, Google officially announced the Android 12 system which comes with significant upgrades. After the launch, major smartphone manufacturers are now updating their Android skins. Some time ago, the Xiaomi Mi 11 got the MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 12 internal beta. However, that update was largely incomplete (more like a test version) and only a few users got the update. However, the Xiaomi Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, and Mi 11 Ultra are now gettung the MIUI 12.5 21.9.17 internal beta system.
Of course, this update is rolling out in batches which means all users will not get it at the same time. The biggest change in this update is the upgrade to Android 12 kernel. The size of this update is 3.9GB and all internal beta testers can get the update.
The update changelog indicates that this update is an Android cross-version upgrade. In order to reduce risks, it is recommended to back up personal data in advance. This update takes a long time to start and load. Furthermore, it comes with performance and power consumption problems. Users may observe that the system heats up a short time after startup. Furthermore, some third-party applications does not support Android 12. This means that these apps will not work properly with the Android 12 system.
Android 12 brings a significant upgrade
According to Google, the entire underlying system of the Android 12 is significantly better. This can reduce the CPU time required for core system services by 22%. Also, the system server’s use of large cores further reduces by 15%, which will bring a smoother and faster response. In addition, in terms of privacy protection, which is increasingly valued by users today, Android 12 has also been upgraded to ensure that users have more understanding and more restrictions on which applications are accessing their data.
According to reports, the Android 12 brings huge changes in appearance. Google introduced a new design language, Material You. With this feature, users will be able to fully personalize their phones through custom colour palettes. At the same time, users can also use colour extraction to choose their own wallpapers, and these colours can be applied to the entire operating system. The colours can apply to the notification bar, lock screen, volume control, new gadgets and more.
As of now, most manufacturers are working on the internal beta of the Android 12. After the internal beta phase, a series of public beta will be released before the stable version will arrive. As of now, there is no specific release date for the release of the stable version.
