Xiaomi’s Product Director and Experience Chief for the MIUI interface hinted that the launch of MIUI 11 the next version of the custom Android user interface is not far away.
The company stated that MIUI 11 is positioned as a “new single operating system” and in addition to the new features, it will also address the issue of advertising by reducing the spots in the coming months and also introducing a simple step in the MIUI system tools to disable them.
MIUI 11 will introduce a brand new set of system icons that have been redesigned from the ground up with a unified design and the ultimate power saving mode in which all system functions are disabled except for calls and messages.
News about Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 have been doing the rounds for a while and now it seems the new version might just finally release by the end of September. Xiaomi’s product director recently posted about giving away two lucky draw tickets to a MIUI 11 conference, hinting at the MIUI 11 release timeline in the process. The giveaway organised by Xiaomi executive ends on September 5, which could mean that MIUI 11 would launch around that time or sometime later in September. While we have some idea of the new features in the upcoming version of the Android skin, it will also feature a voice-to-text translation feature.
The user interface will switch to a monochromatic mode to save energy, however users will also be able customize this energy-saving mode if they wish a certain application to work anyway.
