Whoops, forgot to read the fine print: ONLY ON FLAGSHIPS
The Xiaomi 13 series has just been released and as always, Xiaomi promises of improved performance and security, and the new UI also has a slightly refreshed design. This new UI is now present on the Xiaomi 13 series as it has been announced alongside it.
Xiaomi prioritized space optimization and faster read and write. According to the company, this new version has significantly downsized unremovable apps by eight resulting in at least 1.5GB more space. Reduced memory consumption and better power efficiency are also touted features. Which, by the way, may still slow down non-flagships, unless they are optimized already to run MIUI 14.
There’s also a minor visual change in the new UI. Users can choose four icon sizes and “cuteify” them by adding animated avatars. Xiaomi may have removed more useless bloatware but in return, also added more widgets, customizable folders, and other additional design tweaks.
If you find the UI a little too vibrant, that’s because, like all other Xiaomi UIs, this one is catered originally for the Chinese market and so the UI was announced in China first. A global version is, of course, expected. The global version is a little different versus the Chinese one and this includes the omission of Xiaomi’s own virtual assistant.
Below is a list of devices expected to get MIUI 14. This list also includes tablets as well
- Xiaomi 12/12S series (including 12S Ultra)
- Xiaomi 12 Pro MediaTek Dimensity
- Redmi K50 Extreme Edition
- Redmi K50 Gaming
- Xiaomi MIX Fold 2
- Redmi K50 and K50 Pro
April 2023 (Tablets):
- Pad 5
- Pad 5 Pro 12.4
- Redmi Pad
- Pad 5 Pro and Pad 5 Pro 5G
As you can see, no midrange phones have been listed here but Xiaomi will soon roll it out on more devices, we’re pretty sure. Expect a global turnout sometime in 2023. The devices listed here are intended for the Chinese market. Currently, there are about 560 million phones running MIUI globally.
