Dispute Over MiOS Name
In a recent twist of events, Xiaomi’s highly anticipated self-developed operating system, initially unofficially referred to as “MiOS,” might be getting a new name. While Xiaomi had applied for the domain name MiOS.cn and created quite a buzz around the potential moniker, recent evidence suggests that the tech giant might be exploring alternative options.
According to information from the State Intellectual Property Trademark Office, Xiaomi Technology Co., Ltd. has applied for the registration of several trademarks, including “Xiaomi Surge” and “Xiaomi Hyper.” Notably, these trademarks cover a wide range of categories, including “operating system” and “program.”
The intriguing part is that the trademark status for “Xiaomi Hyper,” “Xiaomi Surge,” and even “Redmi Hyper” is currently marked as “pending substantive examination,” indicating that Xiaomi is awaiting the green light for these trademarks. This suggests that Xiaomi might be considering these new names for their upcoming operating system.
The potential reason behind this naming shift could be related to disputes surrounding the “MiOS” name. Despite Xiaomi’s registration of MiOS.cn, the official website MiOS.com has already been claimed by Ezlo, a company focused on developing smart home solutions. This ongoing dispute over the domain name may have prompted Xiaomi to reconsider its choice of name for its self-researched operating system.
As Xiaomi continues to make strides in the tech industry and expand its product ecosystem, the naming of its self-developed operating system holds significant importance. Whether it ultimately adopts “Xiaomi Surge” or “Xiaomi Hyper” remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: Xiaomi is gearing up for a new chapter in its software endeavors, and the name of its upcoming operating system is just the beginning of the journey.
