It is no secret that Xiaomi is testing MIUI 11 internally in the lab. The company is now on top in the list of the mid-range smartphone market. However, MIUI is not everyone’s cup of tea. But, I admit it, MIUI is getting better with the time. And now, there are some more interesting droplets that might make you excited about the MIUI 11.
Today, Xiaomi’s product director Van Teng has done talk with some MIUI fans where he has confirmed that a new MIUI 11 will be released in the second half of 2019. Further, the MIUI team expects to provide an improved user experience with some new features. But all in all, the new MIUI 11 will follow the minimal design without those ‘cheeky’ ads.
“In general, we are working overtime to create a single new design, and I hope that this will allow MIUI 11 to win high reputation. A new shell will be released in the second half of the year.” – Van Teng, Xiaomi Product Director.
First, let’s take a look at the new changes that you will see in MIUI 11.
Redesigned Icons, and Maybe Whole UI as well
On March 28th, MIUI officially organized Question-Answer session with the product director Liu Ming and design director Gai Rui where they asked for the upcoming MIUI update. Without sharing detailed information, they just gave rice noodles. MIUI product manager said, “We are working overtime to do a unified design. I hope that MIUI 11 will gain everyone’s praise. Of course, the icon is definitely new.”
We all know, Xiaomi hasn’t changed icon style since the MIUI 6 came in light. Over the year, there are other system UI and new features have been added in every iteration. Well, users might see MIUI 11 in new clothes. But, for sure there will be newly redesigned icons.
Ultimate Power Saving Mode
Furthermore, MIUI product manager also revealed that MIUI 11 will also have “Ultimate Power Saving Mode”. Now, the feature seems to be the same as Google’s ‘Adaptive Battery’. The feature helps to extend battery life by limiting power usage for infrequently used applications. Mr. Ming said it will change the screen in a black and white mode in order to prevent usage of more power when there is a shortage.
