Despite the fact that not all Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones have received MIUI 12 firmware, the company is already working hard on MIUI 13. According to rumors (and in general in accordance with the usual schedule), it will be released in mid-2021. But the first video of the MIUI 13 interface has already appeared on the web.
The leak demonstrates how the new shutdown menu works. About a week ago, this function was shown in the screenshots, and now you can see how it looks in the video. At the moment, this is the first video of the MIUI 13 interface, but more should appear soon. Xiaomi will officially announce the firmware either at the end of this year or at the beginning of the next.
The first leaked video of the upcoming Xiaomi MIUI 13 has appeared
Also, a list of smartphones that will receive MIUI 13 has already been published on the Web. Interestingly, it contains such old models as Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4, but for some reason, there are no smartphones of the Redmi 9 series. However, while the list is preliminary. It looks like this:
- Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro
- Xiaomi-Mi Mix 2
- Redmi K30 5G, Redmi K30 4G, Redmi K30 Pro
- Redmi-K20, Redmi K20 Pro
- Redmi 8, Redmi 8A
- Redmi 7A
- Redmi-6, Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi 6A
- Redmi 5, Redmi 5A
- Redmi 4
- Redmi-Note 8, Redmi Note 8 Pro
- Redmi Note 6 Pro
- Redmi-Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro
- Redmi note 4
- Redmi Y1, Redmi Y1 Lite
- POCO F1
- POCO X2
Bearing in mind this is, obviously, an unofficial list, there are immediate eyebrow-raising concerns as to why the original compiler included 2016’s Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 (which weren’t even included on the official MIUI 12 list) but couldn’t find space for 2019’s Xiaomi Mi 9 series or 2020’s hugely popular Redmi Note 9 series. There seems to be no love for the Redmi Note 7 range either, and it’s like the Mi Mix 3 never existed. But at least the Redmi Note 8 lineup is included, which will be a surprise for owners who are still getting the run-around from Xiaomi in regard to a MIUI 12 update.
Xiaomi confirms MIUI 13 development has started
Back in April, the reports about MIUI 13 comes directly from Xiaomi. It’s not a rumor of any sort. MIUI User Research Team shared a post on Mi Community China. The post urges interested users to participate in a Feature Design Survey for MIUI 13. The new firmware may be hitting Xiaomi devices in 2021. So it’s interesting to see the company’s commitment in developing this software. According to Xiaomi “dedication has no limitation”. According to Xiaomi, MIUI software is the soul of mobile phones, and it is more important that hardware to some extent. This shows how the company wants to further improve its mobile operating system. It’s interesting to see the first MIUI 13 reports popping out.
