Xiaomi is the most reputed Chinese smartphone authority. We heard about Xiaomi’s MIUI 12.5 beta update. Today is a big day for Xiaomi. Xiaomi has finally unveiled the intermediate MIUI 12.5 Globally. MIUI 12.5 unveiled, along with China-specific update plans. Just like the earlier versions, the company has emphasized more performance, revamped UI with improvements to CPU and power consumption. The company has also shared the MIUI 12.5 update rollout details in the event.
MIUI 12.5 features
MIUI 12.5 comes with a complete revamp of the system UI which reduced its CPU usage by up to 22% and power consumption was lowered by up to 15%. This enables “frictionless” performance and graphics, which are most visible in screen gestures that should be smoother than ever. It comes with Android 11.
This somewhat corroborates with the MIUI 12.5 Chinese variant however, the company didn’t mention many of the features from China like MIUI+, Natural Sounds, and Haptics, Privacy features like Sandbox mechanism and the updated Super Wallpapers. Anyway, Xiaomi did talk about the improved and smooth UI experience with revamped Gestures and task rendering.
That is, unlike previous versions where Gestures and other Tasks were rendered in a single Core Thread, the MIUI 12.5 gestures get a separate thread so that the CPU doesn’t get overloaded. And the interface is faster and smoother. Next, the MIUI 12.5 beta Global will allow users to uninstall more System apps.
The company even compared with giants like One UI 2.5, iOS 14.2.1 and said that majority of apps can be uninstalled now. Additionally, you can also hide the other apps if you don’t like them.
Some of the newly uninstallable System Apps include Mi Calculator, Notes App, Weather, Compass, Scanner, Mi Recorder, and more. The ones you can hide include Mi Music, Themes, Mi Video, Downloads, and Mi File Manager.
MIUI 12.5 also has many more uninstallable system apps than its predecessors, the vast majority of such apps can now be uninstalled, while a small number of apps that are “engraved in the system core” can be hidden.
