Xiaomi launched the MIUI 12 software update in China in April and unveiled it globally last month. The company announced that the MIUI 12 update will first come to the Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, Redmi K20, and Redmi K20 Pro users in June.

The update brings visual experience tweaks with features like Dark Mode 2.0 and new Mars and Earth-inspired wallpapers. The MIUI 12 update also enhances security by introducing better privacy controls with features such as ‘Barbed Wire’ and ‘Mask System’, among others.

Dark Mode 2.0 lets users dim wallpapers and adjust fonts so that there is less strain on the eyes. MIUI 12 also has a new AI calling feature, which can also transcribe calls and suggest responses.
