<p>There have been rumors for a while about the preparation of a new operating system for Xiaomi smartphones. And today, the project is official. Indeed, the manufacturer has just announced this new platform, called HyperOS, which will replace MIUI, the operating system based on Android created 13 years ago. HyperOS will be officially launched with the Xiaomi 14 series, which will use this new operating system.</p>
<p>At the moment, we do not have all the details on this new OS. However, according to the explanations of Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, it is not entirely based on Android. “By combining Android with our Xiaomi Vela, #XiaomiHyperOS has completely changed the underlying architecture to serve as the basis for connecting billions of devices and connections,” he wrote in a post on X (the old Twitter).</p>
<p>For information, Vela is an operating system that Xiaomi launched in 2020 for the Internet of Things. Based on the NuttX operating system, this OS would improve connectivity on connected objects. At the moment, it is not clear what the benefits of this Vela integration will be. But it is very likely that Xiaomi has decided to use its own operating system on its smartphones, while continuing to support Android applications and taking advantage of the advantages of Google's OS.</p>

Xiaomi more and more independent?< /h2>

In any case, the launch of this new OS suggests that Xiaomi wants to be more independent from Google. Furthermore, HyperOS could remind us of HarmonyOS: this is an operating system different from Android, but which still supports apps developed for Google's OS.

In his publications, Lei Jun also indicates that the development of this operating system took years. “Considerable effort has gone into this new operating system. In 2014, when our IoT business started to grow, we tested various ideas and experiments. In 2017, we started developing an operating system to unify all devices and applications in our ecosystem,” he said.

Otherwise, when it comes to hardware, Xiaomi also seems to want to gradually free itself from suppliers such as Qualcomm or Mediatek. The manufacturer has already developed its own SoC, the Surge S1 chip, which equipped the Xiaomi Mi 5C released in 2017. And currently, some Xiaomi devices use chips designed by the manufacturer to support camera functions.

  • Xiaomi formalizes its new HyperOS operating system, which will replace MIUI
  • HyperOS is based on Android, but also on Vela, a platform created by Xiaomi
  • HyperOS will be used by the Xiaomi 14 series of smartphones
