Back in 2017, Xiaomi added an experimental functionality called « Portal » that allowed us to obtain information from a text quickly. Functionality that was finally undone but that has wanted to recover and give it a new design to be finally present in MIUI 12.
MIUI 9 was the version originally intended to add this functionality. Since then, many have been the innovations that Xiaomi has introduced until the twelfth version of its operating system that seems to be finally integrating this functionality that is already in the testing phase in the beta version for China.
In detail, «Portal» allows you to select a specific word and obtain information about it immediately. Without going any further, either from the Notes application, the browser itself, or in a received SMS, this new feature provides us with the most relevant information.
And, as we can see in the previous images, this new functionality that apparently would return in MIUI 12, would allow obtaining not only the description and meaning of a word but also the map if it were a location. In addition, Portal would allow us to translate on the go, search the Internet for information about the selected word, and various options that would appear in a new advantage at the bottom of the screen, also adapted to Dark Mode 2.0.
At the moment it is unknown when this new functionality will be available, and it is likely that at first, it will only reach the Chinese ROM of MIUI 12. Until then, we will keep you informed of any developments in this regard.
