MIUI 8 is now official, this is the new Xiaomi interface

Some of the MIUI 8 options had already been seen on video that had been officially published, so its design was very cleaner and adapted to the current moment they were no longer exactly a secret. Flatter colors and a more Material Design type design are part of the new from Xiaomi, an example is the one we leave below:

But what had not been published were the most important details of the arrival of MIUI 8 -especially in its renewed notification center-, a development that is a step forward necessary by Xiaomi to adapt to the good work that other manufacturers are doing such as their customization layers, such as Samsung with TouchWiz or HTC with Sense.

First changes

Two of the applications integrated in MIUI 8 have news. The first is the control of the Camera itself, where more options for editing the images and videos that are achieved are added -this in collaboration with the Gallery itself-. In addition, the number of filters is much higher. To all this we must add a more refined and attractive appearance.

The Gallery, which has a better integration with the camera, which we discussed before now looks more modern and allows better selection of groups of files. In addition, it is much more efficient in the use of space and allows the use of stickers, to give a more attractive appearance to what is handled with it if desired.

Other developments such as Calculator or note taking app, they also see their design improved. In terms of functionalities, the first a is more powerful including more advanced use options. The notes do not have many new features, except the possibility of using the fingerprint reader as a protection system for those that are desired, in order to restrict the possible access to them -it is also possible to use background images in these-.

Other novelties

Appearance that changes

This is achieved with the use of Wallpaper Carousel, this new option ensures that the funds -there are up to 12 categories- that are in the terminal change over time (both on the lock screen and on the desktop of usual use).
