Xiaomi has just unveiled its MIUI 12 OS version in China and the fans already have something to look forward to next year. The company has reportedly announced that it has started working on MIUI 13 that is likely to arrive as a follow up to MIUI 12 next year, as per Telecom Talk. The news apparently comes from the Chinese Mi Community. However, it is anyone's guess for now as to what features will Xiaomi MIUI 13 include. It can possibly be based on Android R, who knows? But rest assured, the UI will be more refined and feature-rich than MIUI 12.
