The MIUI 13 India deployment date is now available! Xiaomi India introduced MIUI 13 for the Indian market earlier today, providing all of the features seen in the global build. MIUI 12.5’s replacement promises enhanced performance for older smartphones, fresh aesthetic experiences, and a lean Android experience. The update will be available to eligible smartphones in the first quarter of 2022, implying that the phones will receive the update by the end of March 2022.
To do this, MIUI 13 includes Liquid Storage, a new system-level file storage mechanism. MIUI 13 also introduces significant cosmetic improvements, such as new widgets similar to iOS 15 widgets. A sidebar will also allow users to rapidly access up to 10 applications via a floating window that can be launched with a single swipe, all without leaving the app they are now in.
It should be noted that the MIUI 13 release says nothing about the Android 12 upgrade. As a result, there’s a good probability that most of these verified devices will receive MIUI 13 as a skin update, with the Android 12 upgrade arriving later.
To introduce new live wallpapers to MIUI 13, the business has collaborated with visual content developer Beauty of Science. The firm also states that MIUI 13 has very few system apps that cannot be removed.
MIUI 13 will be available for the following Xiaomi and Redmi phones:
- Mi 11X
- Mi 11X Pro
- Mi 11 Ultra
- Xiaomi 11T Pro
- Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G
- Mi 11 Lite
- Redmi Note 10
- Redmi 10 Prime
- Redmi Note 10 Pro
- Redmi Note 10 Pro Max
Xiaomi will also disclose the MIUI 13 upgrade timeline for additional Xiaomi and Redmi phones; however, this will be released later.
MIUI 13 claims a 60% increase in storage efficiency, a 40% increase in RAM optimization, and a 40% increase in priority optimization to boost overall speed. Xiaomi is also predicting a 10% improvement in battery life. The Sidebar is a new feature that allows you to quickly access your favorite applications from anywhere on the home screen. Finally, MIUI 13 has a pair of new Live Wallpapers, which will most likely be exclusive to Xiaomi’s flagship smartphones.
