MIUI 13 official launch date and time confirmed along with claims of big app improvements over MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition
MIUI 13 will be officially launched by Xiaomi on Tuesday, December 28, at 19:30 China time (17:00 India, 11:30 UK, 06:30 USA Eastern, 03:30 USA Pacific). The Android overlay has long been expected to be released on that day as, of course, it neatly ties in with a major product launch event for the popular Chinese OEM. For instance, the upcoming Xiaomi 12 range is expected to operate on MIUI 13 out of the box.
Promo material for MIUI 13 has made the promise of improved app efficiency over MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition. The basic MIUI 13 experience should result in many users enjoying 20% to 26% greater app “fluency” for important system applications, while third-party apps will work with 15% to an impressive 52% greater speed than those measured working on MIUI 12.5-based smartphones.
It’s a little ambiguous (machine translation), but Xiaomi does tend to bring in key performance, RAM management, and battery life improvements with each iteration of its MIUI skin, even if just for the China ROM variants of its many smartphones. MIUI 13, which is for select devices running on Android 11 or 12, offers new widgets, tweaked icons, and an updated app vault.
