At Xiaomi for All, we delve into the latest development from Xiaomi: HyperOS, making its way to older phones equipped with Android 13. Over the past few months, Xiaomi has been progressively introducing HyperOS to eligible devices, with a global rollout to eligible products now in motion.
Breaking the Norm: A Twist in Xiaomi’s Software Evolution
Traditionally reserved for newer models, the HyperOS update takes an unexpected turn as Xiaomi initiates beta testing for older devices. This move reveals that Xiaomi is not entirely abandoning its established practices, sparking intrigue within the Xiaomi community.
A Deeper Dive into HyperOS: Beyond Expectations
When Xiaomi initially presented HyperOS, anticipation was high for a revolutionary chapter in the company’s software journey. However, the reality disappoints as HyperOS, while emphasizing interconnectivity and optimizations, remains unmistakably MIUI. The continuity of an archaic feature raises eyebrows, challenging expectations.
MIUI Legacy Persists: An Unexpected Turn
Xiaomi’s historical approach involved maintaining MIUI based on multiple Android versions. Despite expectations for a shift with HyperOS, the company adheres to its past practices. Recent releases of HyperOS for three older Xiaomi devices – Redmi K40, Xiaomi 12X, and Redmi Note 12 Pro 4G – highlight a reliance on older Android 13 versions rather than embracing Android 14.
Missed Updates but a Glimpse of HyperOS
While these devices miss out on their third Android update, they gain access to the latest HyperOS. Xiaomi never explicitly committed to three Android updates for these models, absolving the company from blame. However, in a competitive landscape where rivals elevate their software game, criticism arises. Nevertheless, users of these older smartphones can look forward to the HyperOS experience.
Device Insight: Redmi K40, Xiaomi 12X, and Redmi Note 12 Pro 4G
Worth noting is the device insight – the Redmi K40, known as Poco F3 and Mi 11X, and the Redmi Note 12 Pro 4G, a rebadged Redmi Note 10 Pro (Max). These three handsets are slated to receive the much-anticipated HyperOS update, offering users a renewed software experience.
