    MIUI 13 update is coming soon! Xiaomi founder Lei Jun has confirmed that the MIUI 13 update is heading to Xiaomi phones and we could expect it to drop before the end of 2021. No details were revealed on MIUI 13 but it was said that the update will bring a lot of changes to improve the user experience. Rumours have hinted at drastic changes to the interface design of he OS.

    MIUI 13 is most likely to spawn the Chinese version first, followed by the global version. Hence, India and other global markets can expect to see the MIUI 13 version with all Google Mobile Services sometime in 2022. If MIUI 12’s rollout is anything to consider for reference, MIUI 13 could reach by the summer of 2022 to most Xiaomi phones.

    MIUI 13 update coming to Xiaomi phones soon

    While MIUI 13 is yet to be revealed, Xiaomi is currently working on releasing the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition to most phones. Lei Jun pointed out that newly launched Redmi Note 11 Pro benefits highly from the battery optimisations. Sadly, both of these products are yet to come to India.

    However, rumours have been suggestive of these phones making it to India under the Xiaomi branding. The Redmi Note 11 5G is expected to launch here as the Redmi Note 11T with its 5G chipset. The Redmi Note 11 Pro could use the Xiaomi 11i name for India while the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ may get the name of Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge; the latter possibly hinting at the 125W fast charging system in store for us.

    The Redmi Note 11 Pro is said to become the Xiaomi 11i whereas the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ will become the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge.

    For those who need a refresher, the Redmi Note 11 relies on the MediaTek Dimensity 810 chip while the Redmi Note 11 Pro models rely on the Dimensity 920 chip. The Pro models feature a 120Hz OLED display, 108MP main cameras, and the latest version of MIUI 12.5. However, the difference lies in battery capacity and charging speeds.

    What remains to be seen is how different will the Indian Redmi Note 11 and Redmi Note 11 Pro be. The Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro were massively different from their Chinese counterparts.
