Xiaomi has released a list of its devices that will receive Android Nougat update. According to a report in Chinese site IT Home (via GizmoChina), Xiaomi smartphones including Mi Max, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi Note 2, Redmi Note 4X, Mi MIX, and Redmi 4X will be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat. Android 7.1 Nougat will be rolled out for Mi 6, Mi Max 2, Mi 5c, and Redmi 4X. Redmi 4X was launched as Redmi 4 in India.
What’s interesting is that Redmi Note 4 isn’t on the list. The smartphone was launched in China in August. It made its way into India in January. Given Redmi Note 4 was unveiled quite recently, we’re not sure why the smartphone didn’t make it to the list. Xiaomi started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat beta stable update for Mi Max in June. The smartphone was launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and MIUI 7, but later got updated to MIUI 8 in August. Mi Max was unveiled in China in May 2016, and later in June in India.
