It's been almost a month since Xiaomi released the MIUI 12 system. A good number of Xiaomi and Redmi phones already have the beta update. These betas are equipped with some improvements to improve the system. The current closed beta development version of Xiaomi MIUI 12 20.5.25 offers a new and interesting function. This update contains the "Freeform screenshot" function.
To activate this function, you have to long-press with three fingers. That is, long pressing the area of interest with three fingers at the same time. If you succeed, you will receive a screenshot with an optimization. After taking the screenshot a toolbar appears in the upper right corner of the screen. In this bar you have three options regarding the shape of the screenshot. You can take a free, rectangular or circular screenshot. After taking a screenshot, you can also resize the screenshot area to your liking.
Users can search for a screenshot of the area under Settings → More Settings → Keyboard Shortcuts → Keyboard Shortcuts. In addition to the long press with three fingers, there are other ways to activate this function. You can simply long press the home button or long press the menu button to activate it.

XIAOMI MIUI 12 COMES WITH MANY SETTINGS.
The MIUI 12 announced a host of new features, including Vientiane Screen +, Dark Mode 2.0, and more. The "Vientiane Screen +" supplied with this new system is now open for beta testing. Users can go to the App Store to update and get a feel for this feature.
With Dark Mode 2.0, MIUI 12 achieves global coverage. This function is deeply integrated in 42 system applications. In addition, it is specially adapted for 20 mainstream applications, and a large number of third-party applications already support nonlinear inverse color algorithms.
MIUI 12 has a better dark mode feature that allows the screen brightness to be adjusted automatically. The settings depend on the amount of light in the area. A color design is used that corresponds to the WCAG standard. It has high color selection contrast and clearer content in bright light environments. However, in an environment with little light, the contrast can be intelligently reduced according to the screen brightness. This ensures that there is no glare at night.
In addition, the MIUI 12 system animation has a new design. Lei Jun, the founder, chairman and CEO of Xiaomi Group, rated MIUI 12 as "amazing". Well, not as if he was saying anything else.
