After rumours and certification, Xiaomi has confirmed that Xiaomi HyperOS will succeed the MIUI, the company’s current UI or OS that is used in its current smartphones and tablets.
There are rumours of MiOS, and the company registered for ‘Xiaomi Pengpai’ and ‘Xiaomi Hyper’ trademarks recently. Even though the English text says HyperOS, the Chinese text translates to ThePaper OS.
The company’s CEO Lei Jun has confirmed that the Xiaomi 14 series will be the first to use the new OS, and the production has officially started. He added that the HyperOS will gradually replace the MIUI in older phones and tablets running it.
It is not clear if Xiaomi will be moving to Android version-based OS with the HyperOS since ColorOS / OxygenOS, OneUI, Funtouch OS and others upgrade the software every year keeping the latest Android version as its base. Some reports claim that Xiaomi will use AOSP and micro kernel, taking the inspiration from HUAWEI’s Harmony OS.
We should know more details about the HyperOS in the coming weeks, since the new OS from Xiaomi should be introduced along with the Xiaomi 14 series, which is expected sometime in November.
