At the end of 2023, Xiaomi will release MIUI 15, the next major update to its operating system, based on Android 14. It will bring new features and functions to Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO phones.
Xiaomi is already testing beta versions of the new shell for several smartphones and tablets later this year.
MIUI 15 release date
The official MIUI 15 release date has not been announced. It will be known in 2023 at Xiaomi’s presentation. But we can already assume that the updated operating system will be released in December 2023.
Xiaomi sticks to a one-year MIUI update cycle. But while they used to release slowly in spring, summer or autumn, after MIUI 12.5, Xiaomi developers have changed their approach to testing and releasing shell updates.
MIUI versions release dates:
- MIUI 6 — August 29, 2014
- MIUI 7 — August 13, 2015
- MIUI 8 — June 16, 2016
- MIUI 9 — August 10, 2017
- MIUI 10 — June 19, 2018
- MIUI 11 — October 22, 2019

- MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition — August 13, 2021
- MIUI 13 — December 28, 2021
- MIUI 14 — December 11, 2022
- MIUI 15 — December 2023 (unofficially)
Based on the release dates of MIUI 13 and 14, we can assume that the new OS version will be introduced in late 2023. We wait for Xiaomi’s official announcement.
As usual, the first presentation in December will show the Chinese version of the OS, then the global models will receive the update. Flagships will be the first updated, followed by mid-priced smartphones. The last in line are budget phones.
The upcoming shell is currently in the testing phase. If all works according to plan, MIUI 15 beta will be available as early as September or October 2023.
MIUI 15 device list
Early beta tests of MIUI 15 are already underway for some flagship models, including the Xiaomi 12T smartphones, Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Xiaomi Pad 6 tablet. Both MIUI 15 Chinese and global versions are participating in the test.
To understand which phones will get the MIUI 15 update, remember that Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO update 2-3 years. The operating system will be compatible with all devices sold in 2023. Many models with released Android 13-based firmware will also receive the update.
Each updated version of Xiaomi’s operating system depends on the Android version on which it is based. In this case, it’s Android 14. Developers don’t need to adapt older smartphones to MIUI 15 because of the Android framework.
Xiaomi’s official website publishes information about device support in advance — the Xiaomi EOS List, which lists models with Android 14 support. MIUI 14 does not support Android 14. Accordingly, all devices supporting this Android version will get MIUI 15.

MIUI 15: new features
Detailed information about MIUI 15 features is not yet available. However, some features of Android 14, on which the new OS is based, were announced at the I/O 2023 conference.
MIUI 15 may support Ultra HDR images. This will endow photos with better brightness, contrast and colour gamut and give them a more realistic look. Images can be saved and viewed later with 10-bit HDR on Android 14 enabled devices.
Privacy and security have been enhanced and it has been possible to restrict data sharing with third-party apps.
The updated Material You design updates the MIUI 15 interface, adding dynamic themes and making the shell even more beautiful and user-friendly.
A back arrow has appeared. If gesture navigation is active on your device, you’ll see this arrow when you swipe left or right.
Not all MIUI 15 features will be available in the global operating system version. Some of them will only be available in the Chinese Xioami shell.
