Xiaomi: you want global dark mode; Wait for MIUI 12!

You will have noticed, too, that Xiaomi fans are currently working on the current MIUI 11 upgrade for their devices and whether or not to incorporate dark mode into the menus. Many are satisfied, others have encountered problems with the poor display of dark mode menus, while others have not even received it on their devices – and will wait in vain – or at least until the arrival of MIUI 12!
Similar questions were answered by the company's MIUI Screening / Vientiane Screen / Dark Mode Manager on Weibo yesterday and were revealing. Xiaomi fans first asked if rumors of Xiaomi engineers wanting to leave for Oppo apply, with the latter approaching them in much more favorable financial terms in order to quit their job and change company.
@MIUICat as the nickname of Xiaomi's Chief Design Officer said:
"Our engineers work 13 hours a day – constantly. They do not have time to go for interviews, so it is difficult for us to 'steal' their competition. '
He then answered questions with the lack of dark mode support from all the MIUI 11 menus with the right shade selection, proper font display and animations, noting that:
"If users want global dark mode on Xiaomi mobile, they should wait for MIUI 12".
Recall that the stable release of MIUI 11 became available in early October, with the company working intensively on new features to be added in the near future, such as Focus Mode, new features for the app drawer, improved sound effects and ringtones and more. Even so, it's interesting to see Xiaomi's General Manager stating that full dark global integration should wait until the arrival of MIUI 12 – 2020.
