MIUI 12 will soon be rolling out globally to a plethora of Xiaomi/Redmi devices. While the newer Mi, Redmi, and Poco devices will be getting all the goodies, some of the older devices will not be getting the new camera features while others stand to lose out on some of the new multitasking additions. The Super Wallpaper feature is also limited only to select devices.

Xiaomi's MIUI 12 has graced a few devices such as the Redmi K20 (Mi 9T), Redmi K20 Pro (Mi 9T Pro), and the Mi 9 while users of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 7/7S/7 Pro, and Poco F1 can register as MIUI 12 beta testers. MIUI 12 brings a multitude of new features and improvements to the camera and adds some nifty multitasking features such as floating windows. However, not every Xiaomi device that will get MIUI 12 can take advantage of all these features.

MIUI 12 devices that will be getting the new camera features include:

1. Mi 10/Mi 10 Pro/Mi 10 Lite
2. Mi Note 10/Mi Note 10 Lite
3. Mi 9/Mi 9T Pro/Mi 9T/Mi 9 Lite/Mi 9 SE
4. Mi 8/Mi 8 Pro
5. Mi MIX 3
6. Mi MIX 2S
7. Redmi K20 Pro/Redmi K20
8. POCO F2 Pro
9. POCO X2
10. POCO F1/POCOPHONE F1
11. Redmi Note 9 Pro/Note 9 Pro Max/Note 9s/Note 9
12. Redmi Note 8 Pro/Redmi Note 8/Redmi Note 8T
13. Redmi 8/Redmi 8A/Redmi 8A Dual
14. Redmi Note 7 Pro/Note 7/Note 7S
15. Redmi 7/Redmi 7A
16. Redmi Note 6 Pro
17. Redmi Y3

A majority of these devices will be getting the added multitasking features such as floating windows and animated icons as well. However, there are some exceptions. The Redmi Note 6 Pro and Redmi 7A will not be getting floating windows and animated icons. Similarly, the Mi Max 3 will not be getting the new camera features. 

Another MIUI 12 feature called Super Wallpapers will also be available to only a limited set of devices. These include:

1. Xiaomi Mi 10
2. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro
3. Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite
4. Xiaomi Mi 9
5. Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro
6. Xiaomi Mi 8
7. Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro
8. Xiaomi Mi MIX 3
9. Redmi K20 Pro
10. POCO F2 Pro

That being said, it is possible to unofficially get a similar Super Wallpaper experience thanks to XDA Developer linuxct, who has ported the Super Earth and Super Mars live wallpapers as APKs that can be run on any device — even those with AOSP ROMs.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
