Xiaomi introduced its Super Wallpapers with the release of MIUI 12, however, later confirmed that the new wallpapers will only be available on Snapdragon 8xx powered smartphones from the company.

Given the fact that Super Wallpapers were the most notable new feature in MIUI 12, this information did not sit well with many Xiaomi fans.
