The latest version of Xiaomi’s custom Android interface, MIUI 14, has been available for some current Xiaomi phones with China ROM since the Xiaomi 13 launch in December. However, a first changelog of the MIUI 14 Global ROM has now been released, showing which of the new features will soon be available on Xiaomi, Poco and Redmi phones internationally.
Project Razor, a central component of MIUI 14 in China, was focused on reducing bloatware and slimming down the Android 13 interface overall. This will ensure more performance in everyday use and over a longer period of time. The Global ROM changelog indicates a reduction in RAM requirements, which should lead to a faster reaction speed and more performance over a longer period of time. An extension of the search in the settings and an update to the Android security patch level to December 2022 have also been included.
Many users of current Xiaomi, Poco and Redmi phones will be particularly curious to see whether the new design features of MIUI 14 will be included in the Global ROM versions. That is likely to be the case for the most part, as the new home screen features “Super Icons” and “Large Folders” will also be rolled out internationally, and not just in the China ROM. In addition, the folders on the start screen will become more intelligent and highlight apps that are used more frequently.
