Months ago, Xiaomi launched the trending MIUI 11 in China. The update comes with redesign skin and other added features and improvements. The MIUI 11 appears with a redesigned UI, new font, updated Always-On Display, and more. However, the MIUI stable update have been rolled out to good number of Xiaomi, Poco, Mi and Redmi devices.
Seems that’s not enough, the company plans to add more features to the upgraded software — XDA claims.
According to XDA forum; ‘MIUI 11 nightlies from the last couple of weeks contain evidence of several new features for the MIUI camera app that are currently in development. Here’s a brief rundown of all the new features we’ve managed to unearth’
Document and ID Card Scanning
Adding a document and ID card scanner to the MIUI camera app will allow you to scan various documents. The new “document mode” will let you save images in black and white or “strengthen” them, in a bid to make the text more legible instead of captured picture. Also, “ID Copy Mode” was also spotted which is designed specifically to scan ID cards. The mode includes support for double-sided shooting and it can create a 1:1 copy of an A4 ID card.
Video Tagging: It allow you to set a bookmark while recording a video. While playing the recorded video in the gallery app, you’ll get the option to skip directly to the bookmark. This new feature will be useful while recording lectures/interviews/an event as it will let you tag specific parts of the recording for easier editing later on.
The high-efficiency (HEIF/HEIC) file format was designed to reduce the size of images, when compared to PNG or JPG formats, without losing much detail and it will let you store more images in the same amount of space. You will get the option to choose the format preference within the camera settings and the option will be titled “HEIC Format”.
Furthermore, there’s no much information on when these features will go live in the MIUI 11 Camera app. We will patiently wait for the the beta release in no sooner time.
