Xiaomi's HyperOS: A Unified OS for Smartphones, and Cars

Last week, Xiaomi introduced HyperOS, a new operating system intended to replace MIUI.


Now, it's official in China, coinciding with the launch of the Xiaomi 14 series. HyperOS is poised to be a unified operating system catering to smartphones, IoT (Internet of Things) devices, and even automobiles.


Xiaomi's primary goal with HyperOS is to enhance the performance and efficiency of compatible devices. Let's delve into the details.


HyperOS: Features


Xiaomi's HyperOS is characterized by its lightweight design, and it's based on Linux, coupled with the self-developed Xiaomi Vela. Xiaomi Vela, being open-source and grounded on the NuttX real-time operating system, is a pivotal component of HyperOS.


Impressively, HyperOS will occupy only 8.75GB of system storage. This operating system boasts resource management capabilities, allowing it to adapt to different device configurations while optimizing performance. With a supported RAM range of 64KB to 24GB, it's highly versatile.


The feature set includes notable improvements in network performance and multitasking.


Users will also enjoy features such as the MiSans global font system, enhancing visual effects rendering, fresh Lock screen styles, and more.


HyperOS stands out with its support for precise hardware scheduling, ensuring smooth performance and power efficiency even in complex scenarios.


Xiaomi achieves this through dynamic thread priority adjustment and dynamic task cycle evaluation, promising a more stable frame rate and lower power consumption, especially when running graphics-intensive games.


Furthermore, HyperOS embarks on the restructuring of the file system, memory management, imaging subsystem, and network system.


A Unified System for Connected Devices


As mentioned earlier, HyperOS aspires to become a unified system for connected devices. It features an integrated device center, simplifying the control and monitoring of all connected devices.


This will enable seamless actions like switching camera sources during video conferencing, accessing car cameras from your phone, using your smartphone's rear camera while on a tablet or laptop, and tethering your tablet to the internet via your smartphone.


To enhance user convenience, HyperMind, powered by AI, allows connected devices to learn from usage patterns and habits.

HyperOS also introduces large foundation models for Xiaomi AI Assistant, unlocking features like text generation and real-time subtitles.


Furthermore, Xiaomi's Mi Canvas app for tablets will support the AI Brush, offering professional-level enhancements to artwork.


Security and Privacy


Xiaomi places a strong emphasis on security and privacy. HyperOS incorporates a self-made TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) security model, bolstering privacy features. Additionally, end-to-end encryption is employed for data transmission between devices.


Eligible Devices and Rollout Timeline


HyperOS is preloaded on the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro in China, with a rollout to other devices in December 2023. The global rollout is scheduled to commence in Q1, 2024. Eligible devices include:


  • Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro

  • Xiaomi 13, Xiaomi 13 Pro, and Xiaomi 13 Ultra

  • Redmi K60, Redmi K60 Pro, and Redmi K60 Extreme Edition
