Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 custom OS was unveiled back in April and the closed beta testing has already started in China. The upgrade brings enhanced Dark Mode 2.0, improved privacy mode, health tracking, Super Wallpapers, and more. Now, Xiaomi India is kicking off the pilot testing program of MIUI 12 Global build for the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in the country. Those interested in testing the ROM will have to join the private ‘MIUI Global Stable Beta Testing Recruitment Group’ on Telegram by May 14th and need to fill out a form.
Xiaomi says the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro users applying for the beta test must be active members of the India Mi Community and they will have to be on the latest global stable ROM before applying. Furthermore, the ROM updates frequency during the testing program will be based on the development and testing results. The company also says that users can’t leak any details regarding the ROM during the testing and that they should be aware of fastboot flashing and bootloader unlocking methods. Xiaomi also warns that it is a pre-release build and might contain bugs and suggests not to try if it’s a primary device. The selection of the MIUI 12 beta testers in India will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
MIUI 12 features
To recall the MIUI 12 features, it brings a new Super visual design that presents all the data such as available storage in the form of graphs and visual diagrams. The UI is visually much cleaner, with wider spaces between images and texts. Dark Mode 2.0 dynamically dims the wallpaper depending on the time of the day and automatically adjusts the brightness of the font. It includes new Super Wallpapers, which are high-res 3D landscapes of the Earth, the Moon, and Mars. The new Flare privacy feature keeps track of all the permissions and sensitive information accessed by the apps and alerts you when there is any violation.
