Xiaomi is set to introduce the next version of its custom skin for Android, MIUI 12 on April 27. This will be the 12th major software release from the company and will be focused on streamlining user experience with one of the key highlights being the new dark mode aka Dark Mode 2.0. Xiaomi has offered details on how this new system-level feature will work.
One of the first features coming to Xiaomi phones as part of Dark Mode 2.0 is Wallpaper Dimming. Dark Mode 2.0 won’t dim the wallpaper uniformly. Instead, it will simulate a gradual transition of light. This will be based on a day-night cycle.
The second feature is called font-weight adjustment. The new skin will be able to automatically adjust the boldness of texts. This will help reduce glare and blur. an example shared by the Chinese smartphone maker shows how the font-weight is automatically rendered. In the image, you can see 580 font-weight while in dark mode and 630 in light mode.
Xiaomi says Dark Mode 2.0 will have a font contrast adjustment on MIUI 12.
Xiaomi has teased a number of new features coming to Mi and Redmi phones with MIUI 12. The update is expected to become available on as many as 40 different models. Ahead of the announcement next week, Xiaomi is expected to release more information.
