On September 24, the company officially unveiled the eleventh iteration of MIUI in China. Global release took some more days, as Xiaomi started to rollout new builds in a gradual manner from late October.
As the version of MIUI is not directly correlated with the underlying Android layer, Xiaomi engineers kickstarted the development of the next major release. In fact, Xu Jieyun, General Manager of Public Relations in Xiaomi did confirm that the OEM began working on the successor to MIUI 11.
Cut to now, the ‘MIUI 12’ branding as well as the logo are official – thanks to a surprising teaser made via the official handle of MIUI in Weibo.
