Xiaomi’s future iterative smartphones have been the subject of a steady stream of news during the second half of this year. Xiaomi’s new iterative models, identifiable by codes beginning with N, will reportedly ship with the long-awaited MIUI 15 operating system pre-installed, according to the latest information from a Weibo tipster. The Redmi Note 13 series, also known as the N16 and N17, and the Mi 14 series, also known as the N2 and N3, are all included in this new development. These new phones will also feature “extremely narrow” display panels, which will further improve the viewing experience.
The upcoming iteration of the Note series for the second half of the year has been revealed by previous leaks from the blogger. This version is said to have a 6.7-inch, single-hole, centre-aligned screen that uses an amazingly thin, flexible OLED panel without the use of a plastic bezel. It is also expected to have a flagship design with four sharp corners, embodying Xiaomi’s commitment to sleek aesthetics.
We should also note that the development version of MIUI 15 has already appeared on Xiaomi’s server, demonstrating progress in the development cycle. The Redmi Note 13 is currently undergoing testing, and the first test version is identified as MIUI-V23.5.22, indicating that development work has been underway since 22 May. This demonstrates Xiaomi’s commitment to improving its software and ensuring that it integrates seamlessly with its next products.
On the other hand, data on the Mi 14 series is still a little hard to come by. The codenames ‘Houji (j)’ and ‘Shen Nong’ for Xiaomi’s next flagship are a reference to mythological figures in Chinese culture, according to the little information available. It’s interesting to note that a similar pattern was seen with the Mi 13 series, when codenames such as “Fuxi” were used for the Mi 13 and “Nuwa” for the Mi 13 Pro, sparking interest in the Mi 14 series.
With each new leak and development, Xiaomi fans are eagerly anticipating the launch of these iterative models, which are expected to feature cutting-edge technology, immersive screens and the latest version of MIUI. More details are expected to emerge throughout the year, giving a fuller picture of what Xiaomi has in mind for its loyal customer base.
