Introducing the Xiaomi 12 Pro smartphone, embracing the cutting-edge HyperOS for an unparalleled level of sophistication.
Xiaomi has introduced the HyperOS update to its Xiaomi 12 Pro smartphones in early 2024, signaling a new era for the company’s device ecosystem. This highly anticipated operating system has attracted immediate attention from tech-savvy Xiaomi customers eager to explore its innovative features.
HyperOS has been developed over a span of two decades, combining extensive research and engineering. Its primary objective is to address the long-standing debate surrounding the superiority of Xiaomi’s native MIUI versus the fresh HyperOS. The developers have focused on five key pillars for system design: user-friendliness, optimal performance, a unified device ecosystem, integration of artificial intelligence, rigorous security standards, and an open ecosystem approach.
The architecture of HyperOS has undergone meticulous fine-tuning, resulting in significant modifications to the core Linux kernel, redesigned basic modules, and improved component interoperability. These foundational improvements promise enhanced system performance across a wide range of Xiaomi devices, including smartphones, tablets, watches, smart speakers, and other gadgets running on the new operating system. What sets HyperOS apart is its adaptability to different hardware requirements, as demonstrated by its scalable footprint, which can range from as low as 2GB to as high as 24GB for smartphones, and even as little as 64KB for simpler devices.
The developers draw a comparison with iOS, asserting that HyperOS not only surpasses it in terms of optimization but also requires significantly less storage space than both iOS and other mobile operating systems. The enhanced Linux kernel has been engineered to deliver faster performance with reduced task scheduling delays, which is particularly beneficial for devices with limited computing power.
Exciting features of HyperOS include dynamic energy distribution for tasks, resulting in fewer system crashes, reduced power consumption, and increased device autonomy. The file system has also undergone extensive refinements to ensure the stability and symbiotic relationship between the software and hardware, minimizing device performance degradation to a mere 0.5% loss over a span of 4-5 years.
One noteworthy feature introduced is the customization of the lock screen, allowing users to apply various visual effects to their wallpapers, such as relief glass or matte appearances, enabling greater personal aesthetic choices.
Through Xiaomi Hyper Connect, a cross-device connectivity feature, devices can seamlessly integrate in real-time within user environments, like homes or offices, thereby enhancing the user experience through a central “fusion center” for device management. As advanced applications are demonstrated, the embedded AI capabilities named HyperMind showcase promising scenarios for smart homes, subtly adjusting home environments based on user presence and activities. This leap forward aligns with Xiaomi’s vision of an interconnected and intelligent device ecosystem supported by a powerful and efficient operating system in the form of HyperOS.
