For over a decade, Xiaomi phones have used an operating system called MIUI. But now, Xiaomi is switching gears. They’re introducing a brand-new operating system called HyperOS.
HyperOS isn’t just for phones. It’s designed to integrate the entire ecosystem of Xiaomi products, spanning over 200 categories. From smart home devices to cars, HyperOS is set to become the central nervous system of Xiaomi’s ever-expanding universe.
The new OS is a fusion of “deeply evolved Android” and Xiaomi’s self-developed Vela system. This blend rewrites the underlying architecture, laying the groundwork for the “Internet of Everything.” Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun elaborated on Weibo, stating that the new system aims to support tens of billions of devices and connections in the future.
HyperOS will make its grand entrance with the launch of the Xiaomi 14 series. While the exact release date remains under wraps, the phones are expected to be unveiled following the launch of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor on October 24. The Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are rumored to feature a 6.4-inch and 6.7-inch screen, respectively, both boasting a 1440 x 3200 pixels resolution.
Xiaomi HyperOS is not just a replacement for MIUI; it’s a vision for the future. As Lei Jun puts it, the new OS is “preparing a public base for the Internet of Everything for tens of billions of devices and tens of billions of connections in the future.”
