MIUI 12 details
Even though the MIUI 12 update is available for a long list of phones, there is a catch. The Super Wallpapers will only be available for Mi 10 and Poco F2 Pro out of 22 devices. The rest of the smartphones will get static wallpapers. Super Wallpapers are inspired by the space and are images of actual surfaces of Mars and Earth taken by NASA. The images showing the planets zoom in when the phone is unlocked to show the surface of the planet. The Super Wallpapers also change with time showing day, night and evening on these celestial objects.
The new animation icons will be available on only four devices including Mi 10, Poco F2 Pro, Poco F1 and Redmi Note 8 Pro. Also, the floating windows option will be available on 12 devices. The older smartphones are unlikely to get it. The new Floating Windows feature allows users to keep at their work while at the same time performing other tasks also. The multitasking window instead of snapping at the bottom or closing the other app opens inside of a window, which consists of all data and can be dragged around to any part of the screen.
The phones next in line to receive the MIUI 12 update are Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S. The update for Redmi Note 8 devices is expected to be available by the end of September.
