Xiaomi has finally announced MIUI 13 in India. The company has updated its new Android skin with some new features that aim at enhancing the user experience. The new MIUI 13 update also introduces a bunch of privacy and security features. Xiaomi stated that the new update focuses on three core areas – improved performance, refined design, and multi-tasking features.
Xiaomi had announced the MIUI 13 update earlier this year alongside the Redmi Note 11 series. At the time of the launch, the company also listed the rollout time for Xiaomi, Redmi smartphones. As expected, the rollout will be in a phased manner. Let’s take a look at the new MIUI 13 features, list of eligible devices and other details.
MIUI 13 announced for India
Xiaomi has introduced MIUI 13 in India. As part of the phased rollout, several Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones will get the update later this year. The company claims that the new MIUI update has been optimised to improve performance and efficiency. When compared to MIUI 12.5, the new update offers 23 percent improved app fluency with fewer dropped frames. The claimed improvement is specifically for Xiaomi’s native apps. With non-system apps, the company claims that there is up to a 15 percent reduction in dropped frames.
In addition to this, the new update comes with Liquid Storage, which is a new system-level method of managing the way files are stored on devices. Xiaomi claims that the new technique reduces fragmentation and actively manages stored data, improving defragmentation efficiency by up to 60 percent. Users can expect up to 95 percent of the total improved read/write speeds even after three years. In comparison, other Android OS skins decrease this by 50 percent, according to the company.
Atomised Memory and Focused Algorithms
To boost performance, the new MIUI update comes with Atomised Memory, which is a new RAM optimisation engine. It analyses how apps use memory and divide an app’s RAM usage processes into important and unimportant tasks. It closes inactive background processes to make room for new apps to run smoothly. Xiaomi claims that the background process efficiency increases by up to 40 percent with the new RAM optimisation engine.
With Focused Algorithms, the software prioritises an active app over the inactive ones, giving users better speed and performance. The new update also comes with a Smart Balance feature, which automatically finds the balance between performance and power consumption. Xiaomi claims that the battery life improves by up to 10 percent with the new feature.
MIUI 13 comes with a bunch of new Dynamic and static wallpapers. The update also brings a new Sidebar feature, something that we have seen on ColorOS and Realme UI. The feature allows users to access apps in a floating window with a swipe. Users can also customise the feature with up to 10 apps in the sidebar.
List of devices eligible for rollout.
Xiaomi has announced that the MIUI 13 update will roll out to Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11X Pro, Xiaomi 11T Pro, Mi 11X, Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, Redmi 10 Prime, and a few other smartphones during the first quarter of 2022.
