HyperOS – the successor to Xiaomi’s MIUI Android skin – has been leaked online ahead of its debut. The Chinese smartphone maker has already confirmed that the new operating system (OS) will launch alongside the Xiaomi 14 series, and it is rumored that the company will announce its latest flagship phones at the end of this month. Now, users on Chinese microblogging website Weibo have shared several images of the upcoming HyperOS skin, showing off various aspects of the user interface.
Weibo user “Mr. Water” (translated from Chinese) leaked four screenshots of the upcoming HyperOS interface on Wednesday. The first image shows the weather app UI with the temperature at the top left of the screen and the temperature range for the forecast section at the bottom of the screen. The calendar app has been updated with a rounded square design for the month layout tiles.
Xiaomi’s MIUI offered a control center with quick toggles somewhat similar to Apple’s Control Center on iOS and the new HyperOS will also offer a similar interface. The brightness and volume sliders and the now playing widget are all very similar to those on iOS 17, with a small tweak to the layout. The toggles for Wi-Fi and mobile data are located at the top, while the bottom half of the screen contains several quick settings toggles.
The HyperOS home screen features two square widgets that display the time and weather and also show the app name underneath – this is another design element that seems to be inspired by Apple’s operating system.
Meanwhile, another set of four screenshots shared by Weibo user Wei Xiaotian/Alan (translated from Chinese) gives us another glimpse of the upcoming HyperOS skin. The lock screen shows a large, vertically aligned digital clock that appears customizable.
Another image shows a new lock screen personalization feature: Android 14 also introduced new lock screen customization options on Google’s Pixel phones. The screenshot shared by the Weibo user shows that HyperOS lets users tap on various lock screen elements to adjust the font and color options.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has already confirmed that the new HyperOS operating system skin will make its debut on the Xiaomi 14 smartphone series. The new handsets are rumored to make their debut on October 27, but a launch date has yet to be announced. We can expect to learn more about the operating system – and the handsets it will debut on – in the days leading up to its expected launch date.
