Chinese tech giant Xiaomi plans to host its developer conference in China from November 5-7. This year’s Xiaomi Developers Conference will cover a variety of areas such as fast charging technologies, new display technologies and others.
Sources say that Xiaomi may present the next version of its branded software MIUI 13. It is unlikely that a full-fledged announcement should be in plans since MIUI 12 was fully declassified only in April, but the company can confirm the current development stage and provide the first details.
The Xiaomi software development team previously announced that the next generation MIUI 13 user interface will focus on improving animation, offer an improved super wallpaper function, the ability to create your own super wallpaper and other innovations.
In December, the presentation of the Snapdragon 875 SoC is expected, which should form the basis of the next flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 11. It may well debut with MIUI 13.
The first leaked video of the upcoming Xiaomi MIUI 13 has appeared
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.
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:
MIUI 13 compatible devices
- 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.
