This Wednesday, Xiaomi launched with great fanfare its new basic and mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro 5 G. It took the opportunity to start the deployment of MIUI 13 in smartphones already launched at market.

In the course of the first quarter of 2022, 18 Xiaomi smartphones and tablets will be entitled to the MIUI 13 interface. Among these, of course, are the four smartphones presented this Wednesday, but also 14 models already released in the past that will benefit from. an update at the end of March:

To this list we can also add the various Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 launched this Tuesday. However, we will notice some absent, such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G or the Redmi Note 10 S.

Let us remember that MIUI 13 was initially presented and launched in China at the end of December, during the Chinese launch of the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12 X. If the European launch of the three smartphones is still pending, it is therefore not the case of the software update of the previous models.

As a reminder, an update of a smartphone to MIUI 13 does not necessarily mean that the smartphone will upgrade to a higher version of Android, as Xiaomi has a habit of de-correlating Android updates from MIUI updates. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11, for example, are launched under MIUI 13, but based on Android 11.

New aesthetics and software optimizations

However, MIUI 13 will add some features and partially overhaul the interface of smartphones. The new interface promises better data storage management thanks to Liquid Storage, capable of increasing read and write efficiency by 60%. The internal memory of smartphones will also be reviewed to better manage multitasking.

In addition, Xiaomi is emphasizing an interface based more on roundness, particularly in terms of widgets and the arrival of a new sidebar that allows you to quickly access certain shortcuts with a simple swipe of your finger from the side of the screen.
