In recent years, the practice of Android flashing has been on a decline. This is attributed to the manufacturer’s ability to offer more customized systems with improved functions and better personalization options. Furthermore, keeping up with the constant iteration of the underlying Android has become increasingly challenging for users. A recent code search reveals that Xiaomi has started testing the Android 14 system, including models such as Mi 13, Mi 13 Pro, Mi Pad 6/6 Pro, and others, since April 25.
As the Google I/O conference approaches, Xiaomi is expected to be among the first batch of OEMs to open test Android14 Beta. It is also expected that the official version of Android 14 will be launched in August.
Android 14, code-named Flip Cake, and known as Android U, is now being tested on Android 14 Beta 1.1 version based on the “pro-son” Pixel. It is expected to bring better performance fluency, longer battery life, and improved privacy and security management. The update also improves notification management and enhances compatibility and support for folding screen devices. These underlying capabilities are likely to benefit MIUI based on Android14, thereby promoting further innovation.
In conclusion, with manufacturers’ ability to offer more personalized systems and the constant evolution of the underlying Android system, users are less inclined to flash their devices. With the introduction of Android 14 and its improved features, users are bound to enjoy a better and more personalized experience, thereby making Android flashing even less necessary. With Xiaomi’s commitment to testing the latest Android version, users can look forward to a seamless transition to Android14 in the near future.
