All Xiaomi Devices Have MIUI 11 Always-On Display; But You Can’t Use It


Last October, Xiaomi launched the latest MIUI 11 and introduced users to a bunch of exciting new features, including Mi Share, a new app drawer, and more.

One of the best MIUI 11 features is Always-On Display (AOD). While it was already available to the supported Xiaomi devices, MIUI 11 has amplified AOD by adding a bunch of customization options.

This includes new clock themes, breathing light notifications, a Signature theme where you can add personalized text, and a lot more. Unfortunately, only a few Xiaomi phones that have AMOLED Display support Always-On Display, including Redmi K20, Mi Note 10, Mi 9T Mi Black Shark, and a few more.

As much as you want the feature on your Xiaomi device, enabling the “Always-on display” won’t do anything. But it would indeed be a good bluff.
