As already mentioned, PatchWall 3.0 also refreshes the interface. The zero-screen in the UI places content higher than the input tab and also enables horizontal scrolling through different lists, which is also deeply integrated into the show details page. The newly added Mi Lanting Pro font in the PatchWall is the same one which was introduced in MIUI 11.
