Xiaomi wants to give a complete twist to the custom layer that it has always been using with MIUI with the presentation of HyperOS.
Just yesterday Xiaomi announced the arrival of HyperOS , its new system that it will use both on its smartphones and on the entire repertoire of wearable devices it has. A big step forward to leave MIUI behind as the custom layer used for 13 years. Now images and a video have been leaked of what this new interface means that one will have to get used to, since it changes in many aspects compared to MIUI.
At first there was a lot of confusion, since Xiaomi, when announcing HyperOS, did not comment anything about Android, but it was soon revealed that this system is based on Android . This confusion is due to the fact that Xiaomi wants to use HyperOS on all its devices, whether smartphones, tablets and even watches or bracelets. That is, you want to have a unified system for your large product catalog.
Apart from all the images that have arrived a few hours ago, there is a video that shows the work carried out by Xiaomi to provide HyperOS with a large number of animations that turn it into a system or layer full of fluidity and dynamism . At a time when most Android phones have screen refresh rates that even exceed 144 Hz, providing it with animations that enrich your experience is a great bet to be one of the most differentiating aspects compared to MIUI .
HyperOS, total renewal
In the video shown by Rajes Rajput you can see how the lock screen is personalized with different themes and clocks, as well as those animations that turn the customization experience into a very dynamic one that responds to the moment in all its gestures.
These same sensations are also transferred to the large number of screenshots of the interface where each of the modified nooks and crannies are shown to be its own unique system. This aspect is important to put more value on each of the smartphones that Xiaomi will soon launch in the Spanish market. All the changes can be summarized like this:
- A system full of animations to be very dynamic.
- Minimalist home screen with notification bar with two icons.
- Time and weather widgets located on each side of the top of the home screen.
- The structure of the quick access panel remains almost the same.
- The color and curves in each interface element take center stage.
- The dynamic Android theme is not present in HyperOS.
If one of Xiaomi’s biggest bets has been to improve photography, it was already time for a big change in MIUI, a layer that had given the Chinese technology giant its own hallmark ; although in some aspects it had imitated the iOS of the iPhone.
Taking a look at all these screenshots, the use of curved corners at the top stands out, right where it meets the notification bar so that it invades an area of the screen that had always been left in a rectangular format. Even in one of the screenshots you can see two icons in the bar : on the right for the do not disturb mode and on the left for notifications.
A minimalist home screen
In this way, in Xiaomi HyperOS, the time is passed to its own widget located at the top left and the time on the right. It must be understood that the notification bar becomes a totally minimalist area in which only the battery percentage and those notifications will be present.
Of course, everything changes when you open any of the apps or system settings so that the notification bar returns to the typical one with the most relevant information: time, battery percentage, Bluetooth activation, do not disturb mode, alarm or the different SIMs installed in the mobile indicating whether it uses 4G or 5G. So the most significant change will be in the interface of the different home screens in HyperOS.
The HyperOS quick access panel does not present many new features, but the color does take center stage to play with the colors green, blue and white and the same structure of the brightness, volume, multimedia content playback and buttons. the circular shape for each of the shortcuts that can be customized.
One might wonder if Xiaomi will use the dynamic theme , since at the moment, in these screenshots, it does not appear anywhere. Perhaps it is one of the biggest differences in following one’s own pattern of having one’s own identity. And all the icons on the HyperOS home screen have their unique colors and design.
The rest of the screenshots reflect the aesthetic changes in the apps that HyperOS brings with it with visible differences linked to the new system in order to follow a general harmony. The language used for color is present in all the screenshots and reflects another of the points in which Xiaomi wants to distinguish itself from other experiences such as Samsung with its One UI 6 .
Apart from the aesthetic changes, it remains to be seen the camera app and the new functionalities that HyperOS will provide to Xiaomi phones. If the Chinese manufacturer has made it clear that it wants to be a unified system for its entire catalog of mobile devices and wearables, the harmony seen in these screenshots for its entire interface would be transferred to the company’s tablets and wearables. What is very clear is that it is a great move carried out by Xiaomi to leave MIUI behind and present a more modern system clearly capable of even being a little more independent of Android.
