Screenshots of MIUI 13 have once again leaked on the web. The screenshots reveal iOS-like floating widgets along with new icons and layouts. MIUI 13 is expected to bring improved privacy, smoother animations, and custom notification management among others. All phones slated to get MIUI 13, including a range of Xiaomi, Redmi, and Poco devices, will get the virtual RAM expansion.

Xiaomi is rolling out MIUI 12.5 to eligible handsets and is expected to start pushing MIUI 13 via OTA updates towards the end of this year. We have previously seen a few leaked screenshots of MIUI 13's Control Center and now, several more UI changes have appeared on Chinese social media earlier this week. 

With MIUI 13, Xiaomi will be introducing virtual RAM expansion to all devices that get the update and not just limit it to high-end Xiaomi, Poco, and Redmi models. The leaked screenshots show some inspiration from Apple's iOS 14 and iOS 15 such as floating widgets and customized notification management for specific scenarios.

The default search bar position seems to be in the bottom of the screen for easier access. MIUI 13 is expected to bring smoother animations, new themes, improved power management, better privacy, and more. There's also a new always-on-display on the anvil, which is expected to bring enhanced visibility and customizing which notifications are visible on it.

As is the case with Xiaomi updates, not all devices will be receiving MIUI 13 and those that receive may still not get the updated Android 12 base. Nevertheless, devices that are expected to make the cut include:

List of Poco phones slated to receive MIUI 13 based on Android 12:

  • Poco X3 NFC
  • Poco X3 (Non-NFC)
  • Poco X3 Pro
  • Poco F2 Pro / Poco X2 Pro
  • Poco C3
  • Poco M3 Pro 5G

List of Redmi phones slated to receive MIUI 13 based on Android 12:

  • Redmi Note 10
  • Redmi Note 10S
  • Redmi Note 10T
  • Redmi Note 10 Pro
  • Redmi Note 10 Pro Max
  • Redmi K40
  • Redmi K40 Pro
  • Redmi K40 Pro+
  • Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition
  • Redmi K30 Ultra
  • Redmi K30i 5G
  • Redmi K30 5G Racing
  • Redmi Note 9 Pro
  • Redmi Note 9
  • Redmi K30 Pro Zoom
  • Redmi K30 Pro
  • Redmi Note 9S
  • Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

List of Mi phones slated to receive MIUI 13 based on Android 12:

  • Mi 11 Ultra
  • Mi 11 
  • Mi 11 Pro
  • Mi 11X
  • Mi 11X Pro
  • Mi 11 Lite
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite
  • Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite
  • Xiaomi Mi 10 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra
  • Xiaomi Mi Note 10
  • Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro

The upcoming Xiaomi 12 series can be expected to feature MIUI 13 out-of-the-box, but there's also a possibility that Xiaomi would want to polish the update further before releasing it into the wild. The company is likely aiming for bragging rights by being one of the first to announce the Xiaomi 12 series powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. This means that MIUI 13 may not be fully ready by the time the Xiaomi 12 series gets an early unveil in November as per current rumors.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
