When it comes to Xiaomi, all their phones run on the MIUI interface which has been aimed to make the user experience better and more personalized. Currently, all their phones are running on the latest MIUI 12 over Android 11 and the recent reports suggest that the company is already in the process of developing MIUI 13 and releasing it next year. MIUI 13 is going to be a major version update for MIUI. The Xiaomi community yesterday released the MIUI development version internal beta update instructions – 12.8.
As per the confirmation from the company, we will see the release of MIUI 12.5 before the official launch of MIUI 13. Due to the development, the company will be delaying the development of Redmi 10X, Redmi 10X Pro, Redmi K30 Extreme Commemorative Edition. It is expected that MIUI 13 will be released in the mid-2021 and the first video of MIUI 13 has already appeared on the web as a leak. The leak shows a lot of details about how the new menu works and how different the interface is going to look.
Therefore, the company is expected to formally announce the arrival of MIUI 13 by next year and the availability of MIUI 12.5 early next year. The reports also confirm that many of the older versions of Xiaomi and Redmi phones will also get the MIUI 13 update, which would date back to Redmi Note 4. It would be fairly interesting to see how such old devices run the new MIUI 13.
