Xiaomi is expected to reveal MIUI 13 in the next few months. In fact, rumors are suggesting a release for August in China. Of course, the company is yet to give official info regarding the launch date of its next Android skin. Anyway, the lack of official info cannot prevent leaks from spreading across the web. A set of details have been leaking about MIUI 12.5 successor. According to a new report, MIUI 13 will pack a set of new features like a New Control Center, Extended RAM feature, Natural Touch, and many other features.
A fresh report cites various sources about the new features coming with MIUI 13. Apparently, the company will introduce a new feature dubbed Gesture Turbo 2.0. This particular feature works to enhance the fluidity of gesture animations. The company will also introduce a new feature dubbed “Small Window”. We assume this probably stands for floating windows, something that has been available since Android 11 but was never explored by OEMs. However, the report suggests it has something to do with the MIUI Cleaner app adaptation for MIUI 13 floating window.
As aforementioned, the company will also make some adjustments in the Control Center. For instance, the media control notification will be moved to the Control Center from the Notification Panel. Lastly, a new feature called Natural Touch 2.0 is in the works. It will make use of the phone’s haptics to improve the touch response. Of course, all these features are yet to be confirmed. For that reason, we need to digest them with a pinch or two of salt.
Another interesting feature that is probably making its big debut with MIUI 13 is the Extended RAM feature. In fact, some MIUI 12 betas have this feature buried inside the software. Some smartphones also got it even without MIUI 13. The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G is the first smartphone to experience this feature and it runs MIUI 12.5. We assume that Xiaomi is testing it through a few select smartphones. It should arrive for all devices through MIUI 13.
Vivo was the first company to introduce this Extended RAM feature with its OriginOS. For those unaware, it takes a portion of the phone’s internal storage as swap memory. The concept has always been used on PC platforms. Now, it’s arriving on smartphones at full force. There are dozens of Android OEMs announcing their versions of this Extended RAM feature. Xiaomi will be the latest to join this growing trend.
Other features coming with MIUI 13 are Memory Fusion technology, Floating Game Windows. We expect more details to emerge in the next few weeks.
