Xiaomi is busy Updating itself with Android Nougat


Chinese electronics company Xiaomi has certainly made an impact on the Indian smartphone market with its wide range of phones. However, a point of contention has always been Xiaomi’s poor adoption of the Android interface. It is also known for providing late Android updates. Now, things look like they are taking a turn.

Nougat Incoming

The company (which may launch a new brand) has always put its focus on its own custom MIUI ROM and recently even announced MIUI 8 update which brings many new features and customization options compared to MIUI 7. But with many Xiaomi devices about to get the Android Nougat update, the company has, without a doubt, taken a giant step forward.

We look at the whole list of phones which are going to get the Android Nougat update. It is worth mentioning that some devices will receive the Android 7.0 update while others will get the Android 7.1 update. This is probably because the company was working on the updates even before Android 7.1 was released.

Device List

While devices like the Mi Max have already received the update, there are others like the highly popular Redmi Note 4, which will not receive any update at all. The phones which will receive the Android 7.1 version are:

Mi 6
Mi Max 2
Mi 5C
Redmi 4X

Among the phones to get Android 7.0 are:

Mi Max
Mi 5
Mi 5s
Mi 5s Plus
Mi 4c
Mi 4s
Mi Note
Mi Note 2
Redmi Note 4X

The newly launched Redmi 4 (which sold over 1 million units in a month in India) already runs MIUI 8 on Nougat.
