What’s new in MIUI 11?
Xiaomi has been working on MIUI 11 for a long period of time, even before people started talking about Android 10. Hence, we believe the MIUI 11 will pack a number of stupendous features.
First things first, Xiaomi MIUI 11 will include all the awesome features of Android 10. So, expect a system-wide dark mode, massive battery improvements, updated Digital Wellbeing and new privacy-related features.
However, many reports suggest that MIUI 11 will include a number of exclusive unprecedented features.
The biggest one being an AirDrop-like service for file transfer. Using Bluetooth, it will allow devices to exchange photos and documents with a simple swipe or click. Compatible devices will also include non-Xiaomi devices, currently from Oppo and Vivo only.
Recent leaks suggest that MIUI 11 will add many customization options to the Always-On-Display feature. In addition, Xiaomi users will see massive design changes in the settings app and likely in the home screen as well.
