Zhang Guoquan, the director of smartphone software development at Xiaomi, confirmed the news on Weibo. In the past, the Chinese smartphone maker has released a new version of its MIUI during the second half of the year. This year, things are taking a different turn and Xiaomi plans to begin roll out during the second quarter itself. This change in strategy could be driven by the fact that Xiaomi is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and MIUI 12 to launch on April 27: Here's what to expect

It is still not clear whether MIUI 12 will be rolled out on the same day as the announcement on April 27. But it does seem likely right now. While the information comes directly from Guoquan, he did not reveal which devices will get the update first. The information also comes in a direct post by Guoquan on Weibo. Instead, he replied when a person asked on Weibo if the update will be released on the day of the press conference. Also Read - MIUI 12 launch expected by end of April: All you need to know

It is not uncommon for executives of Chinese smartphone makers to share information on Weibo. ITHome notes that these companies like to tease their fans with information like this to drive excitement. We already know that MIUI 12 will bring a new Dark Mode 2.0 and support for 1000+ custom animated AOD styles. It is also tipped to feature a new camera interface along with revamped Settings.

With MIUI 12, Xiaomi is also looking at getting TÜV Rheinland certification for the update. In addition, a report claims that MIUI 12 has a new technology for privacy protection. It is said to be a self-developed open-source program called “MACE”, which stands for Mobile AI Compute Engine. Xiaomi is said to be using an AI framework specifically designed for mobile devices. It will rely on offline computing directly carried out on the end device.
