Xiaomi redesigned the power menu and volume panel in the latest MIUI 12 beta
Xiaomi recently rolled out an MIUI 12 beta update that included new strings of code for three unreleased display features — MEMC, SDR-to-HDR upmapping, and AI upscaling. The build also included short clips showcasing these features, which led us to believe that the company was preparing to introduce these display features on its upcoming flagship — the Mi 11 Pro. While we’re yet to receive any confirmation from Xiaomi about these display features, the company has now released another MIUI 12 beta update that brings a redesigned power menu and volume panel.
XDA Senior Member kacskrz spotted (via MIUIPolska) the new power menu and volume panel in the latest MIUI 12 beta update based on Android 11. As you can see in the attached screenshots, the new power menu looks like the power menu on Realme UI and appears as a wide slider in the center of the display. The slider has a white button in the center, which you can move up to switch off your device or move down to reboot it.
The redesigned power menu also has new animations, as seen in the video attached below. When you move the button to the Power off position, it changes color from white to red, and the blue arrows on it are replaced by the power icon. Moving it to the Reboot position changes the color to green, and the arrows are replaced by a circle. In both cases, the blurred background gradually fades to black when the button is moved.
The volume panel now appears as a wide slider with a three-dot menu button at the top and the Ringer and DND toggles underneath. The volume slider controls the ringer volume by default, but tapping on the three-dot menu button opens up additional volume controls.
As the attached video demonstrates, the expanded volume panel includes three sliders that let you control the ringer, media, and alarm volume. The Ringer and DND toggles also expand in size.
It’s worth noting that the new power menu is restricted to Xiaomi devices running Android 11 based builds of MIUI 12. But the new volume panel has no such restrictions. The Xiaomi.eu team is working to remove these restrictions and plans to release an updated beta version of the ROM with the new power menu and volume panel by the end of this week.
