China-based smartphone maker Xiaomi is currently developing the next version of its custom Android user interface which will be called MIUI 11. Recently, the Product Manager and Design Director for MIUI had shared some features that we can expect from the upcoming MIUI 11.
Now, Xiaomi’s Product Director and Experience Chief for MIUI has hinted that the launch of the MIUI 11 isn’t far away. The company has said that the MIUI 11 is positioned as a “new unique OS” and along with new features, it will also address the advertisement issues.
Earlier, the company had announced that it will be optimizing and monitoring the advertisements on the MIUI platform. The company has already started reducing the number of advertising spots and will further reduce the spots in the coming months.
Xiaomi is also going to introduce an easy switch in the MIUI system tools to disable advertisements. So, in the next couple of months, Xiaomi aims to provide a lighter and fresher MIUI which is likely to happen with MIUI 11.
The upcoming user interface will introduce a brand new set of system icons that have been redesigned from the ground up. The new icons will also have a unified design. Another feature coming to MIUI is an ultimate power saving mode where all system functions are turned off except calls and messages.
In this mode, all colors will be turned off and the UI will switch to a monochrome mode to conserve power. Users will be able to customize this power-saving mode too in case they want a certain app to still function.
Further, the MIUI 11 will also automatically delete screenshots after they have been shared with others. The status bar will also be optimized and more apps will support the phone’s built-in dark mode.
