MIUI 12 global launch India

Today, Xiaomi has finally launched the next big update to its Android skin in the global market. I am talking about none other than MIUI 12 global launch.

Not long ago, the MIUI 12 update was unveiled in China. Now, in an online event, Xiaomi has finally announced the MIUI 12 Global ROM.

As expected, the update comes bundled with several interesting features primarily focusing on the animations, interface, and privacy.

Xiaomi will begin rolling out MIUI 12 globally by the end of June 2020. You will find the MIUI 12 device list at the end of this article.

What’s new in MIUI 12?

1 – Visual Appeal

The biggest new feature introduced with MIUI 12 is probably the Super Wallpaper: high-precision 3D animated live wallpapers of Earth and Mars, which zooms in every time a user unlocks the phone.

The Xiaomi MIUI 12 update also comes with new, reformed Dark Mode, aka Dark Mode 2.0. Now, the device font boldness or contrast is automatically adjusted based on light mode or dark mode. But, the major change in the new dark mode is the Wallpaper Dimming that simulates the gradual light transition on the device wallpaper as the sun goes down.

2 – New Animations

Just like last time, there is a flurry of new animations. From the icon deletion animation to new animation for opening or closing apps, opening recent apps; every little element appears to be live thanks to the MIUI 12.  There is also a new dynamic weather animation and a new battery charging animation.

Apart from this, Xiaomi has added over 2000 new animations in Always On Display (AOD). Moreover, users can now choose the information displayed on the AOD.

3 – Interface changes

The new MIUI 12 update builds on the UI changes of MIUI 11. The interface is now a lot cleaner with more whites spaces. To make it more visually appealing, the interface now displays information in the form of 3D graphs, charts.

Other than that, Xiaomi has revamped the control center, which now shows big and interactive icons. There is also the top-left corner swipe for notifications and top-right corner swipe for accessing the control center, exactly like iOS.

The Android 10 navigation gestures have finally arrived with the MIUI 12. There is now a thin bar at the bottom, swiping left and right on it enables switching between apps, and a long hold plus swipe up opens the recent apps.

A cool new feature that Xiaomi brings along with MIUI 12 is Floating windows. Supported apps can open in a full-fledged working floating window to enable multitasking.

4 – Top-notch Privacy

Recently, Xiaomi launched its new privacy brand, so it makes sense that the new update comes with many privacy features. The biggest one is the App behavior records that keeps a log of apps accessing Android permissions and notifies whenever an app tries to meddle with sensitive actions.

Apart from that, the “Allow once” permission, which was initially introduced in Android 10, now comes with MIUI 12 as well as a new privacy management menu.

Other features include Focus Mode, Ultra Battery Saver, and a Build-in universal casting tool.
