The rollout won't be quick, as Xiaomi explains owners of the aforementioned devices will receive the OTA update "gradually." The software will kick out the brand's old MIUI for the new HyperOS, which, during the 14 and 14 Pro launch, Xiaomi said is "human-centric."

HyperOS brings with it new lock screen customization options for wallpapers and a "Flexible frame" for its tablets to create a more immersive, large-screen-friendly experience. Xiaomi is intent on producing more vivid colors through its OS revamped OS skin alongside complex rendering software.
