Xiaomi announces global MIUI 12.5 launch, promises better optimizations and battery life
At Xiaomi's Mi 11 Global Launch Event, the Chinese smartphone giant also announced that its MIUI 12.5 Android overlay will be coming soon to many of its smartphones.

MIUI 12.5 brings better performance and battery life

Notably, MIUI 12.5 (an "intermediate" update to MIUI 12), will focus on system optimizations, which should result in better overall Android performance and battery life for the users.

The company also promised that due to these optimizations, users can expect faster screen gesture response times from their Mi smartphones.

MIUI 12.5 lets you uninstall even more system apps

While MIUI 12 already lets users uninstall plenty of the pre-installed apps that come with the smartphones, MIUI 12.5 will allow users to uninstall even more system apps.

Now along with the weather app, compass, Xiaomi's note app and more, users can also remove the default music and even file explorer apps. Core apps which can't be uninstalled can at least have their icons hidden.

Here are the first phones to get MIUI 12.5, starting Q2, 2021

The first smartphones to get MIUI 12.5 will, as expected, include Xiaomi's just-announced Mi 11, along with the Mi 10 series. The Android software update to MIUI 12.5 will start rolling out sometime in the second quarter of 2021, in two waves, to the following phones:

First wave MIUI 12.5 updates

Second wave MIUI 12.5 updates

Later on Xiaomi will also publish the release dates for even more devices that will get MIUI 12.5.
