The Chinese tech company Xiaomi announced the retirement of its 13-year-old MIUI in favor of the recently unveiled Hyper OS, marking a major shift in its software strategy. This change comes after rumors floated earlier this month about Xiaomi potentially replacing MIUI.
Xiaomi’s founder and CEO, Lei Jun, announced the news on his Twitter/X account. “Today is a historic day,” he said. Our new operating system, Xiaomi Hyper OS, is about to make its official debut on the Xiaomi 14 Series after years of collective work. He continued by saying that HyperOS would eventually take the place of MIUI on older smartphones that use it now.
Details on Hyper OS Roll-Out
Although the Xiaomi 14 Series will be the first device to use Hyper OS, its worldwide availability is still up in the air. Lei Jun intriguingly provided a “Stay Tuned” response along with a happy face with glasses emoji when questioned about this on X. Many people have been led to believe by Xiaomi’s cryptic response that HyperOS will replace MIUI globally on all of its handsets.
What to Expect from HyperOS?
Recent trademark applications by Xiaomi for “Xiaomi Pengpai” and “Xiaomi Hyper” further fueled rumors about the existence of a MiOS. It’s interesting to note that while the Chinese translation indicates “PaperOS,” the English language refers to “HyperOS.”
Secret are the specifics of how HyperOS will differ from MIUI. More information on HyperOS, however, is anticipated to surface with the November release of the Xiaomi 14 Series, which is also rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset.
In conclusion, Xiaomi’s choice to switch from MIUI to Hyper OS is an important turning point for the company. As the tech community eagerly awaits more details, it’s clear that Xiaomi is ready to bring in a new era of user experience with HyperOS.
