Xiaomi has released a list of all the phones that will receive Android 12 and MIUI 13, which are the latest versions of the respective systems. The expectation is that the download will be released in the first quarter. However, the schedule with the exact dates when each model – be it Mi, Redmi, or any other series from the brand – will have the update has not been disclosed.
The information is precious for consumers who want to have the most current versions of the systems because they can plan to continue with their current smartphones for another year or consider reselling if they are not contemplated.
According to Xiaomi, MIUI 13 stands out as a RAM optimization tool that promises to increase the overall performance of the phone. It also has a new way to manage files and better power consumption.
Check out the list of phones that will receive the updates, according to the manufacturer itself:
- Mi 11 Ultra
- Mi 11
- Mi 11i
- Mi 11 Lite 5G
- Mi 11 Lite
- Xiaomi 11T Pro
- Xiaomi 11T
- Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE
- Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G

MIUI 13 has a file management system called Liquid Storage, which promises to reduce fragmentation in storage data. Normal systems should drop up to 50% of performance after 36 months of use and slow down access. On the other hand, the company says the new system can retain up to 95% of the initial capacity.
The new system debuts a memory management feature called Atomized Memory, which should analyze memory usage in real-time, understand which apps are of least importance, and automatically close them after a while. The Focused Algorithms feature should distribute CPU usage among the applications that need the most processing, rather than equally as usual.
According to Xiaomi, MIUI 13’s Smart Balance feature can extend battery life by up to 10% with more efficient power coordination by finding a balance between performance and consumption.
The text also dedicates a few lines to explain the new customization features, which include a floating sidebar that brings quick access icons for the apps most used by the user. This can be done with just a tap on the screen, without even leaving the program that is in the foreground.
To top it off, MIUI 13 offers new widgets, of various sizes, for the user to customize their home screen with the weather forecast, to-do list, more convenient notifications, among other types.
Announced in May 2021, Android 12 brings a revamped interface with rounded corners, new color schemes, even more, customization options, new animations, more attention to user privacy, and more control over the camera and microphone access. The major companies in the industry are racing against time to release the update on older phones and already include it in the latest releases.
Manufacturers take the pure Android provided by Google and make several changes, both in the user interface and in various internal software algorithms, to adapt the system to the needs of their devices. This is the case with Samsung’s recent One UI 4, for example.
