Redmi Note 4, one of the best selling smartphones in India is all set to get an Android Nougat update. Xiaomi recently launched MIUI 9, the latest version of their custom Android skin which will be based on Android 7.0 Nougat as well. Although MIUI 9’s Global ROM launch date is still awaited, it is finally confirmed that Redmi Note 4 will be receiving an Android upgrade.
Xiaomi had announced a list of phones which will get Android Nougat update but surprisingly, the Redmi Note 4 didn’t make it to the list. It led to disappointment among many users since Note 4 is the latest phone in the Note series.
However, Flipkart has released a poster introducing the Buyback guarantee for Redmi Note 4. And this poster also claims that the phone will soon get an Android Nougat update.
Currently, Redmi Note 4 runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Since Xiaomi has its own custom UI, a new Android update makes very little difference to the look & feel of the interface, even the features to some extent. However, Android 7.0 Nougat will open up new feature possibilities and the Redmi Note 4 shall benefit from it.
Redmi Note 4 is a value for money phone and available in three variants, a 2GB RAM/32GB ROM model, a 3GB RAM/32GB ROM model and a top-end 4GB RAM/64GB ROM model. It comes with a massive 4100mAh battery and a 5.5-inch Full HD display. The Note 4 is powered by Snapdragon 625 chipset and Adreno 506 GPU. It packs a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera.
Availability date of the newly launched MIUI 9 for the Redmi Note 4 is still awaited. Stay tuned for further updates about the Redmi Note 4.
