Xiaomi could launch its latest MIUI 12 update for its global users on May 19. MIUI 12 was announced just weeks back with the Mi 10 Youth Edition in China and brings in a lot of visual and functional changes to how you use a Xiaomi phone.
MIUI’s official Twitter handle posted a rather intriguing puzzle for Mi Fans to solve and asks them to “remember this important day” followed by the hashtag MIUI 12. Now, the puzzle is analytical in nature but it is easier if you know the mathematical order of operations or simply put, the BODMAS rule.
Solving the puzzle, you get 19 as the important day, however, it could either be May 19 or June 19. We expect Xiaomi to announce the MIUI 12 global on May 19 given that it has actively started sharing teasers such as this puzzle in question. This could indicate an imminent announcement of the MIUI 12 for a global audience and as such May 19 could be the likely date for the launch.
MIUI comes with an updated Dark Mode 2.0, redesigned camera app, new always-on display themes, privacy options, new live wallpapers and more. Visually, the developers have opted for a flat and minimal design by grouping different UI elements.
The camera app has also been updated to support the customized layout of buttons and various modes while new multi-tasking features such as window mode, and PiP bring more functional options to the table.
MIUI 12 also features advanced health monitoring tools such as tracking a user’s sleep cycle with as close to 96 percent accuracy.
As for the Indian variant of the MIUI 12, we expect Xiaomi to release it sometime after the global launch. Nevertheless, the developers have already begun recruiting beta testers for MIUI 12 in India but currently only for Redmi K20 and K20 Pro.
