Xiaomi is all pumped up to launch MIUI 12 on April 27, alongside Mi 10 Youth featuring a periscope telephoto camera arrangement.

Ahead of the launch, the Chinese manufacturer has been teasing the MIUI 12 features on the MIUIs official Weibo account. Previously, it revealed the new Dark Mode 2.0 that will include wallpaper dimming, changes to the font, and more.

In another post, it also revealed the new changes to the Xiaomi’s Always-On Display feature, including support for MAML format, the inclusion of over 1000 animations right out the box, and more.
