It's official! Xiaomi leaves MIUI and presents HyperOS | UPDATE

October 17 was announced as a historic day for Xiaomi. The founder of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, shared through Weibo a novelty that could have a profound impact on the smartphone market and beyond: the introduction of HyperOS, an operating system intended for replace the historic MIUI interface.

UPDATE: HYPEROS WILL ALSO BE GLOBAL (MORE INFO AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE)

The transformation: from MIUI to HyperOS

Since Xiaomi made its debut on the market, MIUI has been the interface of choice and recognized for its flexibility and customization. However, innovation is key and Xiaomi felt it was time take a step forward. Although the MIUI 15 both currently in development and expected to be the next big update, the decision to revolutionize and rename the interface to HyperOS highlights the company's desire to reinvent itself. But, what makes HyperOS different? While the system retains the essence of MIUI, it is expected to offer additional features, usability improvements, and most importantly, greater stability.

What are the features of HyperOS

HyperOS, while maintaining a link with its MIUI origin, is built on an Android base, more precisely Android 14. This choice is not random: Android 14 offers a series of features and optimizations that can significantly improve the user experience.

Xiaomi seems to be planning to make the Xiaomi 14 series the flagship of this new operating system, ensuring its users have a smooth and seamless transition from the previous interface. In fact, the new series of smartphones that should be released soon in China (here design and features) will be the first to integrate Xiaomi's new operating system. Clearly, for now we are only talking about Xiaomi smartphones with China ROM.

A global or local issue?

With every new launch, an inevitable question arises: where and when will it be available? Even though Xiaomi has unveiled HyperOS on global social channels such as X (formerly Twitter), some gray areas remain. For example, it is not yet clear whether HyperOS will be a destined novelty exclusively for the Chinese market or if the company has global distribution in mind.

This could have significant implications, as the distribution strategy could influence the perception of the brand internationally. While further details are awaited, it is clear that Xiaomi is ready to bet big on its future. If we have to read between the lines of what Lei Jun said, it seems that the HyperOS operating system (or rather the customized skin) will also be Global.

According to the information shared so far by Xiaomi, HyperOS will continue to be based on Android but combined with the internal system "Sailing IoT”. It can therefore be assumed that Google Play services including the App Store will also be offered in the future. The path is therefore set to be different from that of Huawei.

Which devices will have the new OS?

In the future the new HyperOS will not only be present on smartphones, but inentire product range of the manufacturer. By the way, in Xiaomi's next electric cars or on tablets, SmartWatch, fitness Tracker, devices TV, etc. In some cases Android may not always be the base, but the user interface may be the same, similar to Apple's ecosystem.

SECURITY UPDATE TRAINING

According to what has just been revealed by Alvin Tse, the VP of Xiaomi Global, on X (formerly Twitter), the HyperOS will also launch globally in 2024. Most likely on board the new Xiaomi 14 flagship, although this has not yet been officially confirmed.
