What is HyperOS?
Xiaomi’s new operating system, HyperOS, is lightweight and based on Linux and the self-developed Xiaomi Vela. It is a new operating system from Xiaomi that features a fresh user interface, low-level refactoring, intelligent connectivity, proactive intelligence, and end-to-end security. It is designed to work around Xiaomi’s entire device ecosystem including smartphones, cars, third-party electronics, and smart home devices. HyperOS is expected to replace Xiaomi’s legacy MIUI operating system on Android smartphones. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced the news on both X (previously Twitter) and Chinese social media app Weibo ahead of the rumored Xiaomi 14 launch in October 2023. However, Xiaomi has yet to unveil the look of the operating system or share any new features coming to the operating system.
Difference between HyperOS and MIUI:
In terms of differences between MIUI and HyperOS, HyperOS introduces several performance enhancements, additional customization features, and expanded home automation controls. It also introduces “Advanced Textures,” which enhances the visual experience by adding rendering effects like blurring across the system. The icons in HyperOS sport slightly desaturated colors, giving them a more subdued and refined appearance. In the photo album feature, three new options have been added at the bottom: ‘photo,’ ‘album,’ and ‘recommended,’ making it more convenient for users to handle photo samples with just one hand. Furthermore, some pre-installed apps in HyperOS, such as the calculator, offer new features like floating windows and diverse layout options.
MIUI, on the other hand, has long been praised for its extensive customization options. However, it lacks some of the features that HyperOS offers, such as Advanced Textures and expanded home automation controls.
