Earlier today, we shared with you Xiaomi’s achievements in 2021. In that article, we said that Xiaomi’s total revenue was 328.3 billion yuan ($51.6), a year-on-year increase of 33.5%; the adjusted net profit was 22 billion yuan ($3.46 billion), a year-on-year increase of 69.5%. In fact, these indicators show that Xiaomi is performing quite well. And if nothing accidental happens, it will continue to grow at this pace. However, we should remind you that Xiaomi is not a traditional smartphone maker. We mean that there are myriads of niches, where Xiaomi offers its products. Plus, you should know that initially, Xiaomi was a software company. In this sense, we are also curious about how MIUI performs.
The latest financial report shows that at present, the global MIUI monthly active users are 510 million, a year-on-year increase of 28.4%. In mainland China, the MIUI monthly active users are 130 million, a year-on-year increase of 17%. From these numbers, we can also calculate that only almost a fourth of MIUI users come from the domestic market. Thus, Xiaomi is more an international brand rather than Chinese. This data should break many stereotypes as Xiaomi can’t survive in the global markets. We also want to remind you that it’s the number one smartphone brand in myriads of countries.
In December last year, Xiaomi officially introduced the MIUI 13 operating system. The latter came with a concrete goal in mind, that is, “faster and more stable”. In fact, the manufacturer has implemented tons of optimizations, including focus computing 2.0, atomic memory, liquid storage, etc.
Other than that, the fluency of the whole system has been significantly improved. Compared with the enhanced version of MIUI 12.5, MIUI 13 has accumulated frame drops on the flagship machine. In effect, the duration dropped by 15%, and the entry-level machine dropped by 52%.
At the same time, MIUI 13 has added a system-level full-link anti-fraud feature. It “knows everything” about telecom fraud, and provided multiple protections.
In fact, there are tons of goodies coming our way from MIUI 13. So if you are not aware of them, this article should be very helpful.
The MIUI 13 stable version is already available for download for models such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11, Mi Pad 5 Pro 5G, Mi Pad 5 Pro, Mi Pad 5, and other devices. The second batch of models includes the Redmi K40 Pro, Redmi K40, Xiaomi MIX 4, Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, Xiaomi Mi 10S, etc. They should get the update around the end of March this year.
