Latest Mini Cooper Gets Circular OLED Dash Screen and AI Capabilities / BMW

BMW, known for its cutting-edge approach and groundbreaking innovation, took an impressive leap with its soon-to-be-release Mini Cooper models featuring circular OLED displays and AI-enhanced Mini Operating System 9, revolutionizing how people engage with vehicles.

Mini Cooper vehicles feature an innovative circular OLED display as the centerpiece. As one of its kind in terms of size and OLED technology, this revolutionary display serves both an interface and dashboard function with its diameter of 9.44 inches displaying essential information such as speed and fuel usage in front of drivers directly.

Connectivity is at the core of modern vehicle designs, and Mini Cooper does not disappoint in that respect. Compatible with 5G technology, the vehicle provides high-speed internet access that creates a smooth user experience.

Furthermore, users have access to various apps, including AirConsole games, video streaming apps, and Spotify in its Mini Connected Store, something no other vehicle currently does.

Integration of smartphones is also seamless; users simply connect them through Bluetooth, Android Auto, CarPlay, or USB and can quickly and effortlessly access all their favorite apps and features right on the screen.

Behind the scenes, BMW uses Mini Operating System 9 (Mini OS 9) to power its circular OLED display. Based on Android open-source code, whether or not BMW utilizes Google's car-specific Android Automotive platform is still unknown.

The Mini Cooper enhances driving experiences through its Mini Experience Modes. Drivers can select Core, Green, or Go-Kart modes, each featuring unique interface designs and light and sound effects for an enhanced journey suited specifically to their mood or preference. The Mini Experience Modes let them personalize each journey to suit themselves perfectly!
