So, these are some of the best features we will get to see in the upcoming MIUI 12:
New Gestures and Navigation Bar:
MIUI introduced some of the best gestures of all time with the previous versions of MIUI. However, now all those animations feel a bit outdated and inconsistent. Now, we see much better gestures coming with phones these days. MIUI 12 brings home new gestures and also a brand new navigation bar with it. The navigation bar stays at the bottom middle of the screen always which we have seen earlier in various devices. You can also switch between different apps in the background by just swiping from the side of the screen just like Pixel devices. These new gestures come with new and faster animations that feel modern and good to use. It provides a much smoother and brand new experience.
MIUI 12 has brought a lot of improvements and optimizations to multi-tasking. Earlier versions of MIUI came with the multi-tasking feature but it was not as powerful as seen in many other devices. MIUI allowed two apps to run at the same time, but using it felt really cumbersome and not efficient. Well, with MIUI 12 we will be able to pin apps and use several apps at once and easily switch between them. Multi-Tasking can now be done seamlessly without any hassles with MIUI 12.
New Camera UI:
We see Xiaomi and Redmi devices coming with several camera lenses these days. This has evoked the need for a better and revamped camera UI. We will get to see a new camera UI with the upcoming MIUI 12. The new camera UI has more options than before to seamlessly use all the lenses and use several features easily. The new is also not cluttered which was the case with the previous one. It provides a clean and elegant look which is really appreciable.
Enhanced Dark Mode:
Dark Mode has always been the most loved feature ever since it was introduced. These days every OEM provides the dark mode in their devices. MIUI has a dark mode, but it is not that good. The dark mode was not applicable to all the system apps and third-party apps. MIUI 12 will bring a new dark mode with several improvements to the previous version. This will let us have a complete system-wide dark mode with better consistency between all the apps. This will also provide a much better and unified look with all the system apps supporting the dark mode.
New Notification System:
Well, MIUI has a beautiful interface when it comes to delivering notifications. But this has become outdated and many OEMs these days provide the same look and feel with their devices. To continue the legacy of bringing new looks and designs, MIUI 12 will come with a new notification style. You can also easily manage all your notification settings with the notification manager. We will see new notification styles with palettes like design and a better interface.
