It looks like Xiaomi has started rolling out its MIUI 12 operating system to more smartphones in its home country China. The Android-based interface that was introduced back in April this year, has already been seeded to some users as who are a part of the beta process, in China and globally. Now, it has been reported that MIUI 12 will be coming to a total of 13 smartphones for now, as reported by Gizmochina.

In China, customers who are using these smartphones, can directly upgrade to MIUI 12 stable version by navigating through Settings> My Device> About phone and check for the update. This will be a staggered rollout and will be arriving as an OTA update to these eligible smartphones.

It is not yet clear when MIUI 12’s stable version will be hitting the Indian shores. However, considering that the stable version is out in China and that India testing has begun, it might not take a lot of time. MIUI 12 testing for the India region started earlier this month for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S smartphones.

What’s new in MIUI 12?

Xiaomi is going for a more minimalist look with MIUI 12 but at the same time it has also added many new animations for app launches and closing as well. The new animations are said to be faster and more fluid. There's also an improved dark mode on MIUI 12 which adds wallpaper dimming and font adjustment.

MIUI 12 also comes with new live wallpapers which have a pretty cool zooming feature when the phone is unlocked. It also comes with a new always-on display feature along with floating windows for small app previews. You get stock Android 10 gesture navigation system as well.

Xiaomi says that it has focussed on better privacy controls this time. The new custom OS will identify which apps abuse permissions and alert users. In addition, there's a new virtual ID security tool that's supposed to prevent apps from accessing device information.
