MIUI 11: all the news that Xiaomi is working on

By  Julio Ventura 2019-05-31 1266 0

As every year, at the end of spring, Xiaomi will take the opportunity to announce to the world all the news that will come along with the great update of the software of its devices through MIUI, the operating system of the brand based on Android. However, for several months the company has already been advancing some of the changes that await us in MIUI 11, version that, since January of this year, is in the development phase and will not take much longer to see the light.

In fact, two of the main responsible for the development of MIUI, Liu Ming and Ge Rui, held a question and answer session with some members of the MIUI user community, where they confirmed several of the innovations that will be included in MIUI 11, and that help us to get a better idea of what we will see, probably at the end of May. The news that will reach your mobile Xiaomi or Redmi with MIUI 11.

Extreme battery saving mode

One of the most important news that will come with the new update is the extreme energy saving mode. Firms such as Samsung or Sony have long had an option to reduce to the maximum the energy consumed by their phones, at the cost of minimizing their functions and only leaving the essentials.

As we know, MIUI 11 will have an option of this type, which will deactivate all connectivity options except the data network to allow calls and messages, and change the colors of the screen to black and white to further reduce consumption. In that sense, users will also be able to choose which applications can be executed while this mode is active, and which are not.

Renewed interface with new icons and animations

For lovers of pure Android and simplicity, I am afraid that MIUI is not the most attractive layer of personalization. After all, it is a software designed to attract the eastern public. Even so, since the firm is immersed in its global expansion, it has been renewing the software of its terminals to make it more and more akin to the design language of the operating system of Google, and not so much that of other alternative platforms.

In MIUI 11, Xiaomi will renew both the icons of the app to improve the coherence between the entire interface, as well as allowing the user to change their shape among several available, such as animations and transitions, which will also be improved in order to offer an experience more fluid.

Dynamic notification bar, the solution to the problem of notifications?

Since Xiaomi decided to join the fashion of the notch, the vast majority of phones in its catalog with this feature have sinned a problem related to notifications -Xiaomi and problems with notifications, who would say? -. Because of the notch, the status bar is practically useless, since there is not enough space left to show the icons of the apps with notifications received. Fortunately, MIUI 11 could put an end to this problem.

As we know, Xiaomi intends to move to the right part of the panel all the icons related to the status of the device -watch, connections and other indicators-, to leave the left part empty, so that there is enough space for notifications of the apps In addition, an option to hide the notch would also be introduced, and thus be able to display a greater number of warnings independently of the notch.

Dark theme

Continuing with the changes at the interface level, everything points to Xiaomi will finally introduce a dark mode for the entire system interface. This is not something new, because this novelty was released by Mi 9 at the time of its presentation, but everything points to the fact that MIUI 11 will eventually reach all the models in the firm's catalog.

Automatic removal of screenshots

Another interesting change that is coming together with MIUI 11 is the automatic management of screenshots. According to XDA-Developers, MIUI 11 will be able to determine when a screen capture has been shared, and eliminate it so as not to occupy unnecessary space in the internal memory. An improved capture editor would also be introduced, accessible just at the time of capture - similar to the native capture editor introduced next to Android 9 Pie-.

This is, at the moment, all that is known about MIUI 11, the next big update of the fork of Android that Xiaomi uses on its smartphones and tablets. Since your arrival is getting closer, it is very likely that new data will appear about the changes that are to come. We will update this article to reflect any developments that appear.
