Recently, on an AMA session about MIUI 11 on Weibo, some snippets of what to expect from MIUI 11 was shared. now there are a few interesting things here and in this article let’s take a look at them. So, let’s get started. If you do end up liking this update please don’t forget to share it with others.
MIUIMIUI 11 – Top Features – Dark Mode & Less Ads
Now the absolute first thing here that’s gotta be the reduction of here ads. no, they didn’t say the ads were going away, they’re not gonna be removing it given how Xiaomi kind of you know depends on ads they can’t do that. but they have confirmed that ads that affect user experience they will be removed and also anything that they find vulgar. now how much of an ad reduction will lead to only time will tell. But any kind of ad reduction is better no ad reduction at all, right.
Anyway next is a redesign of the icons. for a long long time now MIUI’s default icons have remained unchanged or have been slightly tweaked. now that’s all supposed to change. icons are supposed to change quite a bit now to get more minimalistic, flatter and animations are also expected to get smoother. that’s always a welcome change.
The next on the feature list that was mentioned, this is something we’ve seen for a long time from other brands like Samsung. It’s something similar to the ultra power saving mode. It’s a power saving mode that turns the screen screen monochrome black and white, it is just gonna let you text and use calls. It makes a lot of sense for Xiaomi to do it at this point, given that they have been using OLED and almost all their flagsips have OLED panels for a couple of generations now. and monochrome can help a lot with battery conservation on OLED panels. so Xiaomi adopting Samsung’s kind of ultra power saving makes a lot of sense at this point of time.
Talking about OLED panels MIUI 11 is also expected to bring with it another feature that we all should be quite excited for, a system-wide dark mode. no this is something you’ve already been seeing on MIUI 11 beta, it should be ready to go out of the box on all devices with MIUI 11.
then there is notifications. Notification management now there if is a notification that you’ve not read for a while it’s gonna be added to your notification box storage, so when you clear all notifications, it doesn’t get cleared. You can find them later from storage. So basically just cuz storage notifications have accumulated, you get frustrated and clear them, that’s not gonna mean you miss some important notification. But this is something we got to see to understand better but it sounds interesting, Right?
remember the annoyances with icons on the status bar with the Poco F1 that is also something they’re going to be addressing with MIUI 11.
The clock is supposed to move to the right and the icons are supposed to be spaced well. So basically better status bar management. That’s another feature that’s supposed to be coming with MIUI 11.
And then there is a local recycle bin for SMS, photos, documents and other files that should get automatically deleted after three days. So if you delete something by mistake accidentally then you should be able to recover it immediately so it’s a little bit of an extra buffer there in case of any accidents. So that’s always nice to have.
And then they also talked about some China specific functionality like call recording for WeChat and QQ.
So these were basically all the features they mentioned that MIUI 11 was gonna be bringing with it. Now we’ve not even seen MIUI 11 yet, but it already feels a major change. The feature, list is starting to look really impressive now. When I managed to get my hands on it even on a beta build I’ll definitely get you guys a hands-on look, so please to stay tuned for that.
