Xiaomi might have silently began roll out of MIUI 11.1 as an incremental update. The Chinese smartphone maker released the MIUI 11 global update for its smartphones only recently. While the update became available in China first, the global release camera after a series of beta test. The MIUI 11 brought a number of features Google introduced with Android 10 but for most devices, it was still based on Android 9 Pie. Now, Xiaomi seems to be addressing that with MIUI 11.1, which is based on Android 10. Like other Chinese smartphone makers, Xiaomi has its own release timelines for major Android update.

Xiaomi was spotted testing a Sunlight mode, which will brighten the screen under direct sunlight even if auto-brightness is disabled. This feature is being rolled out with MIUI 11.1 update. There is also a new animation for screenshot capture and native options to send or take a scrolling screenshot. The update is an incremental one but it does bring a number of features to Xiaomi’s skinned user interface.
