Xiaomi Publishes a List of 14 Devices Getting Android Nougat Update


After releasing the latest Redmi lineup, Xiaomi had promised a Nougat update across its lineup. The latest MIUI 9 will be blended with the Android Nougat update. Xiaomi has today announced a list of its devices that are eligible for an Android Nougat update. The list includes devices like Mi 5, Mi 5s Plus, Redmi 4X and the Redmi Note 4X.


Xiaomi has been sticking to the deadlines when it comes to the MIUI updates, but the same is not true for the Android versions. For the sake of context, MIUI is Xiaomi’s overlay and is based on different versions of Android. Most of the devices including Mi Max 2, Mi 5C and the Redmi 4X will be treated to a Nougat update as well. That being said Redmi Note 4 is still not on the list and will be running on Android Nougat beta.


Android version has become one of the most crucial aspects while buying a new device. Unlike Apple, the update mechanism in Android can get pretty tricky, and it’s mostly up to the manufacturer and the carrier to decide whether to update your phone or not. That being said, even if your device is not on the update list you can still update to MIUI 9 (currently being beta tested) and wait for the Android 7.0. Despite being released a year ago, the Android Nougat still accounts for only 8.9% of the Android devices while the Marshmallow and Lollipop still top the charts with 31.2-percent and 22.6% respectively.

It’s very likely that the future Xiaomi smartphones will offer Nougat out of the box. Updates are quintessential since they ensure your Android phone is shielded from the security threats and vulnerabilities. In fact, it’s due to the quick update cycle, stock Android devices like Pixel and Google Play editions are preferred over the regular counterparts.
