Back in 2017, Xiaomi began working on a new operating system (OS) designed to cope with the problems caused by different device operating systems and problems with interoperability in the Internet of Things (IoT).

This OS was developed to bring all Xiaomi ecosystem devices together, ensuring top performance, a consistent user experience, and easy connectivity within the Xiaomi ecosystem.

In 2023, they introduced it as HyperOS.

What is HyperOS from Xiaomi?

HyperOS is an operating system that is focused on people and was made for a smart ecosystem that includes people, cars, and homes. It advocates complete refactoring to make the most of the hardware capabilities of devices, ensuring smooth performance and effective resource scheduling. HyperOS lets powerful devices do computing faster, gives important tasks quick scheduling, and lets lightweight devices perform flexible distributed computing.


The operating system employs an extremely lightweight file system for continuous performance and reduced storage occupancy. It also enhances OTA upgrades and boasts superior heterogeneous compatibility, supporting various file systems and processor platforms.

HyperOS focuses on an “Alive Design Philosophy” with comfortable, fluid, and diverse graphics subsystem restructuring, enabling high-quality rendering and dynamic visuals. It also focuses on end-to-end security, featuring hardware-level protection, self-developed TEE (Trusted Execution Environment), and strengthened system app security.

When was HyperOS released?

HyperOS was first announced in China with the Xiaomi 14 series in October 2023.

How is HyperOS different from MIUI?

HyperOS differs significantly from MIUI as it’s built on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and Xiaomi’s Vela system, in contrast to MIUI’s reliance on Google’s Android. This change allows it to efficiently run on devices with varying RAM sizes and grants Xiaomi more flexibility in selecting features, free from Google’s service constraints.

Android 14-based HyperOS offers improved performance, faster boot times, and smooth background operations. It’s compatible with a wide range of Xiaomi ecosystem devices, such as smartphones, watches, and TVs, making it a promising choice for those seeking innovative features.

What are the new features of HyperOS?

HyperOS introduces a suite of innovative features:

User Interface Enhancements:

Design Philosophy

HyperOS maintains a similar design to MIUI but offers a more refined and clutter-free interface. It stands out by having fewer pre-installed applications and less bloatware, resulting in a cleaner and more streamlined user experience.

Animation Quality

HyperOS boasts smoother, more refined animations, offering a sophisticated touch compared to MIUI’s more dynamic and whimsical style.

Customization Approach

HyperOS introduces numerous customization options within both system settings and individual apps. For instance, users can now easily extract a portion of an image by tapping on it, allowing them to use it as a sticker or simply copy it.

Additionally, when accessing WiFi or Bluetooth settings via the command center, HyperOS displays a separate tab presenting available devices, mirroring the user-friendly approach seen in iOS. Now the Weather app provides not only essential weather information but also conveys the real feel of the current conditions outside.


HyperOS also introduces a Dynamic Island-like animation for phone charging. It elevates multitasking with improved floating window and split-screen functionalities. Additionally, the lock screen is more customizable, offering various styles and effects for a personalized user experience.

Performance Upgrades:

Storage Efficiency

HyperOS is remarkably more storage-efficient than MIUI, using about 30% less space than MIUI 14, which contributes to a smoother and more fluid performance.

HyperOS Storage Efficiency

Enhanced RAM Management

HyperOS improves RAM utilization, allowing applications to remain active longer and reducing the frequency of app reloads.

Advanced System Operations

HyperOS has optimized resource allocation and power management, potentially extending battery life.

AI-Driven Features:

HyperOS integrates cutting-edge AI capabilities, such as AI-enhanced text recognition from images, advanced speech generation, and intelligent image search.

The operating system enhances device interconnectivity through Xiaomi’s HyperConnect and Hypermind technologies, augmenting the functionality of smartphones, smartwatches, and smart home devices within the Xiaomi ecosystem.

HyperOS supports seamless device switching, remote data, and app access, and offers faster app loading times.
