Less bloatware: One of the great new features is that the amount of bloatware on smartphones is reduced with this version.

There are pre-installed applications that can be uninstalled in this version of the interface.
New animated wallpapers: Xiaomi introduces new animated wallpapers with images of some of the highest and most famous mountains in the world, such as Everest or K2. These backgrounds show us as the daylight advances over the mountain, allowing us to see the evolution of time on them.

Animated Icons: Xiaomi brings some funny animated icons, for example, a moving hourglass in the clock application.
Vibration: It improves the vibration in the customization layer with a more natural feeling.
Desktop mode: One of the most expected improvements that finally comes, a desktop mode that can make you think of the Samsung DeX. Opening documents on both devices or synchronizing them and controlling them is possible in this mode.
