Xiaomi HyperOS Roundup: Launch Date, Features, And Everything Else We Know So Far

Xiaomi HyperOS, which will debut on Xiaomi 14, will replace MIUI. HyperOS is aimed at unifying all devices and applications in Xiaomi's ecosystem.

  • Xiaomi introduced its MIUI in 2010.
  • The company is planning to replace MIUI with HyperOS.
  • HyperOS is aimed at unifying all devices and applications in Xiaomi’s ecosystem.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, in a post on X announced that the company’s new operating system HyperOS is set to make its official debut with the Xiaomi 14 series smartphones. He did not give out many details, but the post was enough to create a buzz. Soon after Jun’s post, several details about HyperOS started to leak online, including screenshots, which give us a glimpse of what to expect.

Later, the architecture of the HyperOS was revealed in a post on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo. Meanwhile, Jun shared on X, a timeline of the development of its operating software starting with MIUI in 2010 up till 2022 when it unified software architecture and completed the integration of system development lines.

Prior to this, Jun revealed that HyperOS, which Xiaomi started developing in 2017 is aimed at unifying all devices and applications in Xiaomi’s ecosystem. For those unaware of the latest development, here’s a roundup of everything that we know about the HyperOS so far:

Xiaomi HyperOS Update Release Date

Jun has already confirmed that HyperOS will make its debut on the Xiaomi 14 smartphones, which will launch on October 26 in China. Xiaomi 14 series is the successor to the company’s Xiaomi 13 series which was launched last year. The series is said to have three smartphones – Xiaomi 14, Xiaomi 14 Pro, and Xiaomi 14 Ultra.

The official launch date for the Xiaomi 14 series has been officially shared by the company on various social platforms. The company’s latest operating software will also be launched alongside the smartphones. The event will take place in China at 7 PM local time. Do keep in mind that the Xiaomi 14 smartphones will be announced in the company’s home market China first before the devices make their way to the rest of the world.

Although HyperOS will initially only be available on Xiaomi 14 smartphones, the company has confirmed that it will be integrated into all of its devices gradually. Since Xiaomi plans to replace MIUI with HyperOS, the new OS could roll out for its ecosystem of devices outside of China gradually.

So, what does this mean for smartphones already running MIUI? The answer is simple. The company will continue to work on MIUI with Android updates and security patches to maintain its current MIUI devices. Meanwhile, HyperOS will keep being developed by Xiaomi for newer devices.

Xiaomi HyperOS Architecture Has Five Layers

The architecture of HyperOS was revealed in a Weibo post. It will consist of five layers. The bottom-most layer is Hardware such as CPU/GPU, RAM, storage, etc.

The hardware layer on HyperOS will be followed by the Kernel layer, which will use Linux as well as Xiaomi Vela, which is the company’s IoT software platform, based on NuttX OS. The Kernel layer will consist of eight new subsystems. It will offer a new cross-device framework, which will enable dynamic device networking as well as collaboration.

The layer above the Kernel layer is that of Service and Framework. It uses a framework from Android as well as Xiaomi Vela services. Above this layer comes the fourth layer of HyperConnect, which will help with communication between the devices that run the OS. The fifth and the top-most layer will be made of Apps.

A timeline of MIUI was also shared by Jun on X in an image. It gives us a glimpse of highlight events from the inception of MIUI in 2010 to how the system development lines integration was completed in 2022.

In several other posts, he has hinted that HyperOS will serve as a cross-device interconnection framework for its ecosystem of devices. The Xiaomi HyperConnect is said to work seamlessly across multiple devices and real-time networks. “Human-centric technology is the core of Xiaomi. All your needs are complete in this smart ecosystem of personal devices, cars, and home products,” Jun wrote in a post on X.

Xiaomi HyperOS Top Features

So, a crucial thing to keep in mind is that the HyperOS will bear some resemblance to the existing MIUI or at least this is what leaked screenshots tell us. Jun has, however, said in his posts on X that the underlying architecture has been changed completely by combining Android with Xiaomi Vella. It has been done to serve as the basis for connecting its ecosystem of devices.

Do keep in mind that the screenshots leaked online appear to be from the early HyperOS beta release, so expect changes in the final version release. Now, let us take a look at what the leaked screenshots tell us about the features of HyperOS.


Four screenshots, depicting various aspects of Xiaomi’s new OS were posted by user, “Mr. Water” on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The company has previously said that HyperOS will bring new fluidity and improved connectivity across devices.

As seen in screenshots, the HyperOS will offer a control centre somewhat similar to MIUI, but it could be tweaked slightly. Different elements like the brightness and volume sliders, as well as the now playing widget, and Wi-Fi and mobile data toggles, are visible in the screenshot. These take up the top half of the control centre. Meanwhile, some quick setting toggles like Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, Torch, etc make for the bottom half.

Another Weibo user “Wei XiaotianAlan” (Translated from Chinese) also shared a set of screenshots, said to be of HyperOS. One of the images reveals the lock screen taken over by a huge vertical digital clock, hinting at several new customisation options for the lock screen. Apart from new types of clocks, Xiaomi could also offer new font and widget options for the lock screen on HyperOS.

Moving on to the home screen, two square-shaped widgets can be seen on top, one showing the time, while the other shows the weather. The app icons beneath the widgets do seem similar to the MIUI 14.

Finally, there seem to be a ton of lock screen customisation options to choose from on HyperOS such as Classic, Rhombus, Magazine, and more. In addition, users can apply several effects and there are different wallpapers to choose from as well. Honestly, the lock screen feature does remind us of the same on iOS.

Xiaomi HyperOS List of Compatible Devices (Leaked)

Even though Xiaomi has confirmed the debut of HyperOS only on Xiaomi 14 smartphones as of now, some leaks have claimed that more Poco, and Redmi smartphones could also be updated with the OS.
