[Mi Now # 09] Mi 9 Has Been Choosen For MIUI 11 Chinese Beta!
Ahead of Android Q Beta 5, Xiaomi announced that they were requiting Beta testers for MIUI 11 testing. By now we know that almost 4000 hand chosen by the company got the chance to test the new MIUI 11 before it gets out officially for all devices.
Even after all of these precautions, it's the modern world we know. News will leak outside as usual. So today we have some crispy new screenshots of MIUI 11 already in our hands via an unknown Beta tester. Lets get into the news then!
MIUI 11 on Mi 9 is just another MIUI 10 - For Now
Sadly first of all, there are no changes in the UI yet. It's just the same it was on MIUI 10. Just some new icons and a new feature called 'Ultra Power Saving Mode' have been reported till now. Plus the search bar location on the home dock has a bit of change. It's now on the bottom.

Some New(ish) Features:
As Xiaomi is in a big hurry right now getting MIUI 11 up and running, they have cut out some features that were supposed to come like 3D Air Gestures, A dedicated App Drawer in the launcher and Tasks in the Mi Note App. Hopefully they will add it in the final build of the MIUI 11 before Stable ROM rolls out for selected devices. But one thing was found which is the 'Screen Time' section. It almost looks like the Google's Digital Wellbeing . More over system wide "Dark Theme' is also available those who like to keep there phones fully black.

The launcher of the phone has been edited a bit as it looks like. A video got out about it. You can check out the video to understand the changes a bit. So, I am gonna give the job of finding out what are the changes done in the launcher.
Another new feature is a newq theming option has been added in the developer option with accent colours. So now by this option your can edit the icons of apps, font colour and moreover the font itself! But sadly, after a reboot the edits just goes away. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
Moreover, security measures are now increased in MIUI 11 like iOS. You can set a timer on the permissions that you give to apps. This means after the time runs out, the app can't use the permissions that you provided anymore and you again need to provide permissions to it.

Bugs? Of Course!
Yeah, we all know that on Beta Channel ROMs are quite unstable. So you will find bugs yet in the ROM. Some notable bugs are the usual camera bug, Software force closes and many more. But hopefully these all will go away before the final stable release of MIUI 11.
