MIUI 13 comes with a number of features. For most devices, MIUI 13 will be based on Android 12. However, for some devices, it may be based on Android 11. The new OS update comes with features like Liquid Storage that allow users to manage their storage more effectively, Atomized Memory that results in better RAM management, and Focused Algorithms that "dynamically allocates system resources based on usage scenarios."

Other features include new widgets and a Sidebar that allows users to access apps and tasks with just a swipe. For devices that receive Android 12 based MIUI 13, the OS might also come with the key highlight Material You theming engine. This version would not be a fork of Google's wallpaper-based theming engine and instead would be the same theming that Google Pixel devices use, as per Mishaal Rahman. Though it's still not confirmed if the global version will roll out with this theming engine.

Interestingly, Xiaomi has confirmed that Indian Xiaomi smartphone models are excluded from the MIUI 13 global rollout. Instead, the devices in the Indian region will receive an MIUI 13 update specifically build for India.
