ZTE unveils its MiFavor 10 skin based on Android 10
With the Android 10 rollout picking up pace, OEMs have started releasing updated versions of their Android skins. While some manufacturers like Xiaomi and OnePlus have already released updated versions of OxygenOS and MIUI for a couple of their devices, others like OPPO have just announced their Android 10-based skins with plans to roll them out to devices in the next couple of weeks. Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE is the latest to jump on the bandwagon and it has now unveiled its MiFavor 10 skin based on Android 10.
In a recent post on Weibo, ZTE has shared a nifty infographic for its upcoming Android 10-based skin — MiFavor 10. As reported by GSMArena, the updated skin includes a new system-wide dark mode, along with plenty of black backgrounds, to make night-time usage a bit more comfortable. The skin also includes completely redesigned icons, with ZTE including over 1600 system icons to choose from. As stated in the infographic, over 80 of the new system icons are designed for micro-motion effects that add a nice touch to the overall experience. Additionally, the skin features optimizations to motion curves that are expected to make transitions a whole lot smoother.
ZTE’s MiFavor 10 also features dynamic wallpapers, most of which go along with the new darker aesthetic, along with six new built-in themes with their own distinct iconography. Notifications have also been updated with a new visual style and they now pop-up in a small floating window that’s expected to keep distractions to a minimum. The new notifications look a whole lot like the ones we’ve seen on Samsung’s One UI. ZTE has also shown off a new compact window interface and a floating keyboard to make multitasking easier.
The MiFavor 10 update also brings a couple of interesting smart features that will allow users to recognize the contents of your screen by long pressing on it with two fingers. The system will be able to recognize both text and images and provide users with product matches and recommendations based on what is identified. ZTE also claims that the new software will feature full-fledged voice control and navigation that will allow users to execute certain in-app actions. On top of all that, the new skin brings improvements to ZTE’s AI engine, Z-Booster 2.0 for fast app startup times, superior graphics and less stutter. While ZTE has confirmed that MiFavor 10 will be coming to the Axon 10 Pro, Blade V10, and Axon 9 Pro, the company hasn’t released an update schedule.
