The Xiaomi 12 will most likely be unveiled later this month, on December 28th, and it will bring the new MIUI 13 with it. The logo for the new OS version has been leaked through Xiaomi’s Feedback app and continues the geometric design trend from version 12.
This was discovered by the team at Xiaomi UI, which dug even more into the upcoming update – videos showing some new features also discovered in Xiaomi apps that were updated in preparation for the announcement.
The first few videos are about the home screen. The new Infinity Scroll function loops the home screen panes, that is, when you get to the last one, the next swipe takes you back to # 1.
Even small widgets are now available. They were introduced in MIUI 12.5 beta, but have not yet been activated in a stable release. This is what they look like:
Finally, an update on an existing feature. What started life as a Video Toolbox and was later renamed the Smart Toolbox is now called the “Sidebar”. This is what it looks like at MIUI 13.
Xiaomi has been doing some rebranding this year, updating its logo and dropping “Mi” from the name of its premium phones. MIUI 13 will complete the company’s new look.
