MIUI 12’s invert colour algorithm is based on Lab, HSV colour space, and the inverse colour adaptation is wider and more natural.

The Dark Mode 2.0 automatically adjust the contrast. In the dark mode, screen brightness is automatically adjusted to follow Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to meet the colour, high contrast colour selection and contents are sharper in light environment. Under low light conditions it will reduce the screen brightness intelligently according to the contrast.

 With MIUI 12’s Dark mode 2.0 the font weight is adjusted dynamically to reduce glare and blur, and restores normal font weight in light mode to make reading more comfortable. This will also bring smart wallpaper dimming at the pixel level, simulating the change of light and dark in the real world, restoring true colours, and dark colours are more natural.
