Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 beta program keeps on bringing new features to the latest custom skin but beta builds are typically known to be unstable.
It is only natural of beta updates to have some bugs and one such bug is affecting several Xiaomi devices including the Mi 10, Mi CC9 (aka Mi 9 Lite), and Redmi K20 Pro (aka Mi 9T Pro).
The OEM recently released the MIUI 12 beta update version 20.11.16 which brought the Mind Map feature to the MIUI Notes app.
However, the update also triggered an issue on the Mi 10 which is being dubbed as the “flashing back when opening life yellow pages” bug.
It is mentioned in the update notes that the said bug is being investigated and will be addressed in subsequent updates.
