MIUI12 uses the latest rice pomelo light cone architecture and rewrites the underlying architecture of the system. The overall animation effect is refreshed, and the core scene animation is comparable to iOS. Synesthesia visualization is an efficient visual design brought by MIUI12, with vivid animation effects running through the entire system UI, full of vital animation details everywhere.
MIUI12 system animation improves the system experience comprehensively through self-developed rendering engine, animation engine, illustration engine and many other innovative technologies. The new system restores the real light and shadow through advanced color mixing and control level real-time blur processing; relying on the physics engine, the system icons can present elegant spatial motion; relying on the dynamic form technology, it brings a perfect horizontal and vertical screen animation effect.

MIUI12 touch imagination The world’s top aesthetic and dynamic choices other than iOS
The climax of the MIUI part of the entire press conference came from the super wallpaper. Xiaomi MIUI is the world’s first mobile phone system brand that realizes the perfect connection of the screen, lock screen and system desktop. Take the two planets of Mars and Earth to the user’s fingertips in MIUI12, and experience the magical journey through space between the square inches.
MIUI12 started the exploration of human homes, broke through the limitation of space on imagination, and truly reproduced the features of planetary landforms. The super wallpaper contains three parts: the breathing screen, the lock screen and the desktop wallpaper, which maximizes the space aesthetics and realizes a coherent and unimaginable unlocking experience. Desktop wallpaper can choose the place of landing, such as the Mars Nirosettis platform, Marvos Valley crater, Hale crater central mountain range; Croatian Mediterranean Nature Reserve on Earth, Guilin Longji terraces in Guangxi, China, Greenland Ilulissat Iceberg and other representative real landforms provide users with an experience beyond imagination.
Super wallpapers are rendered in real-time using a game-level engine, data is collected from NASA officials, and the planetary landforms are accurately restored with high precision. Each unlock is a new and wonderful journey. Super wallpapers change with time, and through real-time rendering, realize the real feeling of alternating day.
Super wallpaper is a brand-new concept proposed by the entire mobile phone smart operating system industry, breaking through the limitations of space on imagination, and maximizing the aesthetics of space. Jin Fan, general manager of the Internet Department I and general manager of MIUI experience, said: “Xiaomi MIUI12 is another choice for the world’s top aesthetics and dynamics besides iOS.”
Flare + interceptor + hidden mask MIUI12 protects user privacy in all directions
Xiaomi MIUI has always been committed to user information security and privacy protection, and has always been in the leading position in the Android field. As early as 2013, MIUI supported the run-time rights management function, leading the Android native system for nearly three years, which is also the cornerstone of Android user privacy protection. The new MIUI12 defends user data rights with the industry’s most stringent privacy standards through the functional design of the three modules of flares, interceptors and hidden masks, which is comparable to the world’s leading iOS.
In the MIUI12 flares function module, all sensitive behaviors of all APPs are faithfully recorded by the mobile phone system and presented to users. When the capabilities of sensitive systems are used, users are clearly reminded that small actions of applications that were previously undetectable are now clear. Users can have complete right to know the application behavior in the device.
The interception network is another new privacy function module of MIUI12, which is different from the passive defense in general consciousness. The interception network gives users more choices and decision rights on App permissions. After opening, all high-risk behaviors of applications will be directly prohibited. When an application is found to have unauthorized access to private data, the authorization of relevant permissions can be turned off as soon as possible to protect the security of private data. In addition, when users are sharing photos, they can also choose to erase sensitive information such as the shooting location to share their lives but not their privacy.
For the stubborn Android disease that does not allow permission, the new MIUI12 system also provides users with a hidden mask function. After the user actively opens, he can provide blank information to rogue applications to strengthen the initiative of privacy data control. Five permissions such as contacts, calendar, and call records support the setting of a “blank pass”, which not only solves the problem of necessary permission authorization, but also protects the user’s private data information.
MIUI global free window function upgrade to create an optimal solution for multitasking
The newly created global free window function of MIUI12 makes mobile phone multitasking more convenient and efficient.
When you receive an instant messaging software notification on any interface, you can easily open a small window and quickly reply by pulling down the notification. Push up the small window to exit, pull down the small window to enter the full screen state, and the new small window interactive gestures make the use of the small window easier and more convenient. In addition, when looking at the circle of friends, public account and applet, you can also pull down the notification to enter the small window, which solves the problem of replying to the message but interrupting reading.
For later processing and application hanging scenes, MIUI12 introduced a “mini window” function, you can hang the application to be used in the corner of the screen, leaving most of the display space to the application being used. The mini-window is also combined with full-screen gestures. Use the slide-up gesture to slide the current application up to the upper right corner of the screen and hang. Scenarios such as game upgrades and waiting for taxis suspend the application in one step, doubling the convenience.
In addition, this small window upgrade also brings an active call out method, enter the most recent task, click “small window application” to quickly start the small window. The new small window interactive gestures and the new concept of “mini window” fully upgrade the global free window function to perfectly solve the multi-tasking problem of mobile phones.
AI call + Xiaomi Health fully empowers MIUI12
MIUI12 has also made many upgrades in terms of system functions, including AI call and Xiaomi Health.
MIUI released the closed beta AI phone assistant last year, which helped the audiophiles answer 4 million calls for half a year. It is newly upgraded to AI call in MIUI12, supports custom opening language, and is more playable. In addition, MIUI can also help people with hearing impairments to answer and make calls, so that they can better communicate with the world, so that the transmission of information is no longer obstacles.
MIUI12 adds Xiaomi health function. Xiaomi Health can conveniently record and track the user’s health status, such as exercise tracking, sleep monitoring, weight tracking, menstrual assistant and standing reminder, etc., users can easily get health assessment suggestions. At the same time, based on Xiaomi’s deep learning inference framework MACE Micro, Xiaomi has developed an offline AI motion behavior perception algorithm “spirit string”. Users can experience high-precision and low-power automatic motion tracking services on mobile phones. Electricity is less than 1%.
In addition to the two major functions of AI calling and Xiaomi Health, MIUI12 also brings many new functions. For example, a new control center, dark mode 2.0 suitable for almost all applications, better use of fun notes, a more efficient and convenient calendar, a more intimate and intelligent travel, a minimalist mode newly designed for elders, etc. The new MIUI12 system makes the user’s life more convenient and exciting, and is the user’s first choice for pursuing a high-quality life.
