In April, MIUI 12 was presented at an online event that took place in China. After that, the first beta version of the new interface for several smartphones was launched, but they were located in China. Now that MIUI 12 Global is official we already know the news that the new Xiaomi interface will offer when installed on a smartphone. However, the best news is that it will start to reach Redmi and Xiaomi.
In Europe this will happen in two phases and not in three as in China. Thus, a first set of devices will receive the new version at the end of June and others only later.

The first devices that will receive the global version are the Xiaomi Mi 9, Xiaomi Mi 9T, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. In other words, to start with just 5. However, several devices follow. In fact, the list is extensive which is excellent news for anyone who has one.
Let's start with Xiaomi equipment. Right away we have the Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Lite and Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Lite, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and Mi 9 Lite, Xiaomi Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Mi MIX 2S and Mi MIX 3, Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and Xiaomi Mi MAX 3.
In the case of Redmi we also have many devices. So, we have Redmi Note 7, Note 7S and Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 8, Note 8T and Note 8 Pro, Redmi 8, 8A and 8A Dual, Redmi Note 9, Note 9s, Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max, Redmi 7 and Redmi 7A, Redmi 6, 6A, 6 Pro and Note 6 Pro, Redmi Y2, S2 and Y3 and Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro. In the case of Poco we have the POCO F1, POCO X2 and POCO F2 Pro.
What comes with MIUI 12?
The first detail in the MIUI 12 news that immediately attracts attention is the animated icons. This in addition to some minor changes to the standard icons. Furthermore in MIUI when we open an application it starts to open and ends in the center of the screen. In MIUI 12 the window expands from the app and returns to the icon when we close that application. In addition to these details, MIUI 12 also has a new font that fits like a glove in the new graphic aspect of the interface. Although the system continues to show the source of the system as Roboto, the changes are quite evident.
New camera application in MIUI 12 Global
One of the great new features of MIUI 12 is a new camera application. In addition to the new features, the new app will be more customizable in its appearance and buttons, which we can configure to our liking.
MIUI 12 features new space-inspired live wallpapers. Among them, there are two new wallpaper packs called “Super Wallpapers” with four zoom levels.
However, if you want to get your hands on them, you can. This is because the XDA programmers were able to extract the static and live wallpapers from the MIUI 12 firmware for the Redmi K20 Pro / Mi 9T Pro and are now available for download. Find more information and download it here. You don't have to be using a Xiaomi smartphone to access them.
New settings screen
The animations in MIUI 12 are not just limited to the home screen and the control center, but also to different menus available in the Settings. For example, there are new animations to highlight the graphics of battery capacity and usage.
Also in the About phone menu, various animations are available, especially on the Storage tab.
New version of dark mode
MIUI 12 arrives with a new improved dark mode that can now be applied selectively to certain applications. This is especially useful for apps that don't have a native dark mode. In this way, it is possible to invert colors or force dark backgrounds that normally should be light.
MIUI 12 has floating windows in order to offer the same experience of several windows that we have in a computer. Supported applications can be opened in the form of floating windows that occupy only a small part of the screen and can be opened on top of other applications.
MIUI 12 helps improve users' fitness and mental well-being. The pre-existing step counter now has an automatic tracking system for running, cycling and climbing stairs. In addition, there is a new sleep recording system that stores the time and quality of your sleep based on the movements and sounds you make at night. In addition to tracking the exercises, the Mi Health app also tracks the number of times you got up and sends notifications if you don't move for a while.
Privacy is a big bet for MIUI 12 Global
MIUI 12 now has the possibility to monitor the behavior of applications on the smartphone and report suspicious behavior to users. In addition, when an application requires permissions to access the camera, recording and GPS, the user must always give permission. In fact, interception systems further regulate the app's permissions, completely prohibiting the use of cameras and other systems in the background.
However, even when permissions are given you can choose to allow only during use or at a specific time. In addition, MIUI 12 is the world's first operating system for mobile devices that has passed TÜV Rheinland's “Advanced Android Privacy Protection Test” which fully guarantees the security of user data.
New control center
MIUI 12 also comes with a new control center that is clearly inspired by the latest versions of iOS. Even the biggest, roundest icons have many similarities to iOS 12.
However, notifications are more organized and those belonging to the same application appear grouped, although they can be expanded back individually. For that, we just have to press the notification bubble for a while.
MIUI 12 also comes with useful features in the smartphone gallery. The first is Memórias, which can be used to create collages or short videos using existing images or videos. For collages, you can choose the orientation, add text and edit each image individually. For short videos, you choose from several models.
Mi Share is another new feature of MIUI 12 Global
Apple's AirDrop is extremely popular with iPhone users. This is mainly due to its ease of use. However, implementing similar functionality on Android was practically impossible. Thanks to an alliance between Xiaomi, OPPO, Realme and Vivo everything has changed. The alliance allows one-click file transfer between Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo smartphones. The transfer supports several formats, such as photos, videos, music, documents, etc., and is fast (up to 20 MBps), stable and efficient in terms of energy consumption. In fact, one of the great advantages is that there is no need to install additional applications. This is thanks to something called Mi Share.
