Google’s Android 12 native system is actually far inferior to the magic-modified systems of these domestic manufacturers in the function expansion part. In China, we compare the modified systems of various mobile phone manufacturers, such as Xiaomi MIUI, Meizu Flyme, OPPO’s Color OS, and Huawei’s EMUI. Of course, Huawei has now fully upgraded to the Hongmeng system, and it has received a lot of praise in terms of interface, functions, and other aspects. If there is anyone who can compete with Huawei in terms of system in addition to Apple’s iOS, it may only be Xiaomi MIUI too.
In fact, Xiaomi MIUI has always had a good reputation among users, but the expected MIUI 12 seems to have overturned. After this year’s launch, it has been snarled by users. Xiaomi hurriedly launched MIUI 12.5 to make up for it. Everyone still has some doubts about the Xiaomi MIUI system, especially because of the stalling problem of Xiaomi MIUI 12. Many users think that Xiaomi has overemphasized functions on the system and ignored the fluency of the system.
Of course, Xiaomi has also set up a special group for system problems to optimize the system experience. However, it is clear that Xiaomi will never put all its energy on MIUI 12.5, because according to the convention, Xiaomi will officially release the annual system update, MIUI 13 in the second half of this year. Therefore, Xiaomi’s current focus on the system should be on MIUI 13, rather than fixing some of the problems of MIUI 12. After all, the new system is not far from the release time.
Generally speaking, Xiaomi will hold a separate conference for the MIUI system, but this year Xiaomi will launch mobile phones such as Xiaomi MIX 4 and the new Xiaomi CC, so it is very likely that Xiaomi will release some products in conjunction with MIUI 13. Judging from the current situation, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will be the flagship product of Xiaomi in the second half of the year, so Mi MIX 4 is likely to become the first product of MIUI 13. Considering the current rumors that Xiaomi MIX 4 will be officially released in August, MIUI 13 is also hopeful that it will be released together with Xiaomi MIX 4.
In terms of system features, the first thing that MIUI 13 will do this time is to streamline the system. Previously, MIUI 12 was stuck because the system was too complicated and the functions were too many. Therefore, MIUI 13 will be more concise in design this time, so that the entire system will no longer be bloated, thereby improving the efficiency of system operation and achieving the purpose of improving fluency. In addition, it is said that MIUI 13 will adopt a plug-in design, so that some default and streamlined functions are retained on the system. If users want to expand the functions, they can adopt the plug-in mode and install the required functional modules by themselves.
In addition, for the memory Turbo technology launched by Huawei a few days ago, Xiaomi will also add similar technology to MIUI 13, that is, memory expansion technology. Through this technology, Xiaomi mobile phones will use part of the inapplicable storage space as virtual memory, so that mobile phones with 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB memory can get more memory space in actual use. Of course, this virtual memory technology is definitely not comparable. Increasing physical memory can also increase the fluency of the system to a certain extent, and it is still very meaningful for mobile phones with small memory. It is reported that this feature Xiaomi will design an activation switch in MIUI 13 separately.
Finally, in the MIUI 13 system, Xiaomi will add more distributed functions, so that Android phones can also get a distributed experience similar to Huawei Hongmeng. Of course, the two implementation methods and technologies should be different. Xiaomi will use distributed menus in the system, including various functions and basic tools and services, which will be presented in a distributed menu. This will not only be more intuitive for users when using mobile phones but also be more beneficial to multi-threaded applications. In addition, the same as Huawei’s collaboration function, in Xiaomi’s MIUI 13, mobile phones can perform cross-screen collaborative operations with computers, tablets, and TVs. Of course, this function must be implemented only when the target is Xiaomi’s products.
It can be seen that the changes in Xiaomi MIUI 13 this time are great. The distributed menu will completely overturn our previous impressions of the Xiaomi mobile phone interface, and from the perspective of several functions, MIUI 12’s lagging problem can also be greatly improved. Good solution. In addition, we have also seen that many of Xiaomi’s new systems are obviously aimed at Huawei’s Hongmeng. Whether it is memory expansion technology, distributed menus, and collaborative operation of different Xiaomi products, these are the selling points of Huawei’s current products. At least in this MIUI 13 system, Xiaomi is quite a bit diametrically opposed to Huawei.
If everything is normal, MIUI 13 will be released together with Xiaomi MIX 4. The current news is in August. Of course, we think August may be the release time, or maybe not the time to push the update directly. After all, MIUI 13 needs to be adapted to various Xiaomi phones, and it should take time to polish. At that time, we will continue to pay attention to Xiaomi’s new system to see if it can bring us more surprises.
