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) skin will come with the Xiaomi 14 series, and rumor has it that the company may announce its latest flagship phone at the end of the month. Now, users on Chinese microblogging website Weibo have shared multiple images of the upcoming HyperOS skin, showing off various aspects of the user interface.
Weibo user “Mr. Water” (translated from Chinese) four screenshots leaked of the upcoming HyperOS interface on Wednesday. The first image shows the Weather app UI with the temperature at the top left corner of the screen and the temperature ranges for the forecast section at the bottom of the screen. The Calendar app has been updated with a rounded square design for the tiles in the month layout.
Xiaomi’s MIUI offered a Control Center with quick toggles that somewhat resembles Apple’s Control Center on iOS and the new HyperOS will also offer a similar interface. The brightness and volume sliders, as well as the Now Playing widget, look similar to iOS 17, with a slight change in layout. Wi-Fi and mobile data toggles are located at the top, while the bottom half of the screen houses several quick settings toggles.
The home screen on HyperOS features two square-shaped widgets that show the time and weather and also the app’s name at the bottom – another design element that appears to be inspired by Apple’s operating system.
