MIUI 12 also comes with super wallpapers that are inspired by Mars and Earth. For this, Xiaomi will be bringing official images of deep space from NASA and other space agencies.

With a refreshed UI, MIUI 12 introduces a Magic Clone feature in the camera app. It lets users create virtual doppelgängers in photos and videos to make them more fun. According to Xiaomi, this feature is now available on Mi 10.

Xiaomi users will also be able to choose if they want to share the location data or metadata while sharing pictures and videos. Newly introduced Universal Casting tool will allow users to cast anything that you do on phone including videos, games and documents. With the help of private casting, users will not be interrupted by any calls or messages while they are presenting something.

The new floating windows feature will let users multitask by letting them minimise and hang the messages or emails on any corner of the screen while they are working on something important.

MIUI 12 also brings ultra battery saver mode that, as claimed by the company, can offer up to 5 additional hours of battery performance if the battery comes down to 5 percent. This will be achieved by limiting all the functionalities except the important ones like calling or texting. These functionalities can also be customised by users as per their convenience.
