The company seems particularly enthusiastic about the circular OLED display, measuring 9.44 inches (240 millimetres) in diameter, located in the center of the dashboard. Mini is the first to implement OLED technology at this size in the industry, with plans to introduce it in next-generation Mini models using Mini Operating System 9. Based on an Android Open Source Project (AOSP) software stack, this operating system represents the latest version of BMW Group's infotainment software.


The round display serves as an interface for Mini's new cloud-based navigation system. It offers optimized route planning for electric versions of the new Mini Cooper and incorporates 3D maps and AI views. The display enables access to Mini Experience Modes – Core, Green, and Go-Kart – each featuring a unique design and additional light and sound effects.

By saying "Hey Mini", users can activate Spike, the company's new intelligent voice assistant. Spike provides quick control through voice commands for functions such as navigation, telephony, radio, and temperature. Optional 5G connectivity supports over-the-air updates for faster interface updates, scheduled several times a year. High-speed connectivity also grants access to the Mini Connected Store where users can download applications like AirConsole games, video streaming apps, Spotify, and more.
