At the product launch event with the theme “Beyond every moment”, Xiaomi announced HyperOS – the operating system that supports its smart ecosystem including personal devices, cars, and home products.
In its statement, Xiaomi said it has grown from 100 to an impressive 1.175 billion users with its product portfolio now spanning over 200 categories. The company acknowledges that in the IoT era, it faces challenges in addressing the complexity arising from the multitude of device operating systems and interoperability challenges between different ecosystems
This led to the birth of Xiaomi HyperOS. In development since 2017, HyperOS is designed to unify all devices in the ecosystem into one integrated system for peak performance, consistent user experience, and seamless connectivity.
Xiaomi HyperOS is built on Linux and Xiaomi’s self-developed Xiaomi Vela system, allowing it to work effectively with many different devices, regardless of RAM size (from 64 KB to 24 GB). HyperOS is lightweight (system firmware on smartphones only takes up 8.75 GB) and uses minimal resources compared to competitors, thereby delivering optimal performance. This operating system excels at task scheduling and resource management, ensuring stable performance even in resource-intensive scenarios. Technical modules, such as file system and memory management, are optimized to exploit different hardware capabilities.
With an advanced multi-device Smart Connectivity framework at its core, HyperConnect revolutionizes connectivity, allowing users to control all connected devices from anywhere. It allows switching camera sources during video calls, accessing cameras from various devices, and transferring data seamlessly between devices.
Meanwhile, HyperMind is the AI center that helps devices become proactive. This feature learns the user’s needs and adjusts the device accordingly, allowing them to enjoy smart automation without needing to understand complex logic
HyperOS also integrates major platform models to enhance system applications. The platform supports features such as voice generation, image search, and AI artwork creation. Third-party applications can also benefit from this AI system.
Prioritizing user security, Xiaomi’s self-developed TEE operating system serves as the foundation for the company’s security subsystem. Dedicated hardware TEEs protect sensitive information and extend this security to interconnected devices. HyperOS uses end-to-end encryption via TEE to transfer data between devices.
Aiming to promote the open source ecosystem, HyperOS has simplified IoT development with Xiaomi Vela – an IoT software platform specifically designed for consumer IoT products. Xiaomi Vela is driving IoT device innovation, improving performance, and enabling real-time connectivity across a diverse range of devices
Xiaomi HyperOS is a human-centric operating system completely designed and tailored to connect personal devices, cars, and smart home products in a smart ecosystem.
The newly launched Xiaomi 14 series will have Xiaomi HyperOS pre-installed, in addition to devices launched in Xiaomi’s domestic market such as Xiaomi Watch S3, Xiaomi TV S Pro 85-inch miniLED
