[News] Introducing Global MIUI 12.5: Faster, Smoother, Lighter! (Host Thread)

Hello Mi Fans,

Along with it's latest flagship Mi 11, Premium QLED TV and Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 special edition, Xiaomi also unveiled the latest MIUI 12.5 today which is an intermediate update based on MIUI 12 with a strong focus on system optimizations. After a complete revamp of the system UI, its CPU usage was reduced by up to 22% while power consumption – by up to 15%, ensuring frictionless performance and graphics.

  • System Optimisations - Lighter. Faster. Smoother  

This is most visible in screen gestures that will now be smoother than ever. In previous systems, gestures and other tasks were rendered on a single thread resulting in a queue of tasks competing for CPU usage. Naturally, under this scenario an overload of tasks could cause lags. However, in MIUI 12.5, gestures received a dedicated thread, making sure that no other tasks will interfere with them, and guaranteeing instant response. A lighter and faster operating system! Less CPU usage, less power consumption. MIUI 12.5 brings an improved battery life to your phone!

Another highlight of MIUI 12.5 is uninstallable system apps. The vast majority of apps in the new system can be uninstalled, while a small number of apps that are engraved in the system core can be hidden.

Super Wallpapers: Break the Boundaries of Space

MIUI 12.5 offers super wallpapers to break through the boundaries of space and touch imagination at your fingertips. From the screen display, to the lock screen, to the mobile desktop, every screen changes into an imagined space. Here Technology meets superb aesthetic. Powered by a new generation of technology, an improved 3D real-time rendering will deliver a new way to experience nature.

  • Notes App: A hub for all your inspirations and ideas - You Write. We Present.

Take notes like a pro. Whenever ideas come to you. Structure and organize your ideas on the phone. Create. Manage. Move ideas around. Create a mind map with one tap. With four different drawing tools, recreate real strokes. It's also optimized for easy control. Generate shapes and connect lines automatically. You can record a thought before it's gone with a quick access for note-taking.

***The first batch of compatible devices to be upgraded to MIUI 12.5 includes Mi 11, Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10T, and Mi 10T Pro. ⁣ ⁣
⁣***The second batch of compatible devices to be upgraded to MIUI 12.5 includes Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10 Lite, Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Pro, Mi Note 10 Lite, Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 8 Pro, POCO F2 Pro, POCO X3 NFC, Redmi 9, Redmi Note 9T.
