MIUI 11 Features, Iconography Leaked by Accidental Rollout Ahead of Formal Launch

Xiaomi is expected to release MIUI 11 officially later this month

Highlights
  • MIUI 11.9.9.9 closed beta was briefly available for download
  • New MIUI version is said to have a reference of Mi 9 Pro 5G
  • MIUI 11 includes an all-new iconography

MIUI 11, Xiaomi’s next-generation custom skin, is yet to receive an official launch. But ahead of any formal announcement, the Chinese company is said to have accidentally rolled out the new MIUI version to some of its devices. This has enabled us to see what’s majorly new in MIUI 11. The custom skin is found to include colourful icons and an implementation specifically to enable cross-device file sharing between multiple devices of Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.

As reported by XDA Developers, Xiaomi accidentally rolled out the MIUI 11 update for devices such as the Redmi K20 Pro ₹ 28,990, Mi Mix 2S, and Mi 6. The download links were reportedly available for the closed beta MIUI 11.9.9.9 for a short time, and an XDA Developers forum member was able to download the firmware to find out the new features of MIUI 11.

First in the series of changes that are apparently a part of MIUI 11 is the new iconography that looks quite different from what we have on MIUI 10. There are colourful icons but not in symmetry, unlike stock Android 10.

The latest MIUI is also found to have bold text throughout the interface alongside plenty of white space. Further, Xiaomi has provided a large number of system apps. A reference to the Mi 9 Pro 5G that will debut with the newly launched Mi Charge Turbo is also said to be available on MIUI 11.
