Xiaomi seems to have leaked a small portion of its MIUI 12 user interface by accident. It’s widely believed that the Chinese OEM is busy working on the latest version of its Android overlay and there has even been a recent leak listing which smartphones will be supposedly first to receive MIUI 12. The latest user interface seems to have a darker appearance overall.

XDA Developers has published a series of images that appear to show a small part of Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 software overlay. Apparently, the Chinese company had “accidentally” shared some pictures of the user interface for the upcoming update on the MIUI Community forums. Fortunately, screenshots of the MIUI 12-related images (see below) were made before they were taken down.

It’s clear to see in the comparisons made by XDA Developers that the new MiSettings UI is overall darker than the previous user interface. For example, the setting for a Xiaomi smartphone’s refresh rate has been changed from mostly a gray box containing a short option list to two different-colored and easily selectable boxes. The MIUI 12 setting for Focus Mode is also significantly different, with a smaller central image surrounded by a much darker background.

As has been pointed out, these images would likely have been taken from a very early version of MIUI 12, and it is more than probable that Xiaomi will make many further changes before releasing the software update to its considerable lineup of smartphones. It’s also possible Xiaomi deliberately leaked the new MiSettings user interface pictures to build up some hype around MIUI 12 and give Xiaomi and Redmi smartphone users a bit of a teasing look at what's in store.
