Xiaomi’s New UI: HyperOS, to Replace MIUI on a Global Scale
Xiaomi has officially announced that it will be saying goodbye to its Android skin/UI, MIUI, and introducing a new skin called Xiaomi HyperOS. This confirmation has come from the company’s social media channels, its CEO, and employees.
Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s CEO, has revealed that the new UI will debut with the Xiaomi 14 series. The Vice President of Xiaomi Global has also confirmed this while stating that HyperOS will gradually replace MIUI. According to him, HyperOS will offer “Hyper Performance, fluidity, and connectivity across Smartphones x AIoT”. This suggests that HyperOS will not be exclusive to China and will completely take over MIUI.
The introduction of MIUI goes back to 2011, when it was launched alongside the Xiaomi Mi 1. Back then, it ran on MIUI 2.3 based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Since then, MIUI has undergone significant changes and updates.
According to a tipster, Abhishek Yadav, Xiaomi’s new UI will be a complete refresh with no similarities to MIUI. He claims that this information comes from Xiaomi team members, indicating that the company plans to make substantial changes to its software.
MIUI has had its fair share of criticism over the years. While it offered many features, it wasn’t always well received due to occasional bugs and a less “clean” user interface. It is yet to be seen what HyperOS will bring to the table. Will Xiaomi opt for a more minimalistic approach or go in the opposite direction? Only time will tell.
