Xiaomi has released the latest version of the MIUI Custom Operating System. The next generation operating system will be called MIUI 13 and is based on Android 12. It builds on the existing MIUI 12.5 which powers several Xiaomi phones in China, India and other markets. Xiaomi made the announcement of MIUI 13 at an online event Tuesday night in China. MIUI 13 comes with a brand new MiSans font for Xiaomi smartphones and improved security and privacy features. Xiaomi has also announced MIUI 13 Pad for its tablets.
The smartphone maker also presented its new flagship smartphones Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro at the same event. Both of these smartphones will run MIUI 13 based on Android 12 out of the box. Existing Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco smartphones are also expected to receive the update in the coming months.
Xiaomi’s MIUI 13 will focus more on security and privacy improvements, the company said at its launch event. It is supposed to increase the smoothness of Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco smartphones by almost 52% compared to the existing MIUI 12.5. The company presents a new MiSans font with MIUI 13 which will give a unique look to Xiaomi smartphones and tablets.
Xiaomi claims that MIUI 13 Pad is specially designed for large screen devices, is compatible with over 3000 apps, and even helps users multitask. At present, Xiaomi sells tablets in very few markets. It had introduced the premium Mi Pad 5 series earlier this year, but has yet to launch any of the models in India.
Xiaomi smartphones and tablets will receive new widgets as part of the MIUI 13 update. Xiaomi even showed off some of these widgets at its launch event. Apart from that, MIUI 13 will also bring better power saving mode, smart tools, Android 12 and virtual RAM expansion.
It should be mentioned that the smartphone maker has already rolled out virtual RAM expansion for some of its smartphones as part of MIUI 12.5. Xiaomi says the deployment of MIUI 13 will begin at the end of January 2022.
