MIUI 12: Design and UI


The design and UI do not deviate significantly from MIUI 11’s visual styling. But it does refine and rethink certain aspects of the UI. MIUI 12 Xiaomi has developed its framework called MIUI telecon motion effect architecture. The rendering engine of the frame enables real-world light and shadows. Advanced interface color mixing real-time blur perfect rounded corners g2 curvature and much more. You will see the system information presented in the form of graphs and visual diagrams, making it easier to understand and consume. MIUI 12 also introduces a new and in some cases long-overdue refresh of the iconography. Both in the default app icon pack where icons are far more unified and attractive rounded square. And also in the setting and other system areas where the iconography has improved readability and general attractiveness as expected.

Dark mode 2.0

MIUI 12 also delivers an improved system dark mode over the MIUI 11’s already grand optional color scheme. Meaning more system apps are supported, and third-party apps will also be toggled with support. 

There is an exciting spin on the live wallpaper, and it zooms in the form of space level view and an aerial. View just a few 100 above the surface of either of the planet.

When you look at the phone, the physical engine is responsible for new, improved animations, the duration of animation will depend on the user’s touch interaction. The opening and closing of apps will also affect the icon of the respective app by stimulating a natural curve in three-dimensional spaces. Additionally, dynamic layer icons will generate real-time feedback based on the direction and speed of gestures. The animations are said to be vivid and smooth to offer a pleasing experience.
