The list contains almost all the Xiaomi models that are yet to get the update except the Mi 1 and Mi 2A.

Xiaomi had already released MIUI 9 Closed Beta updates for the Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi 5X, and Redmi Note Note 4X (Qualcomm version) in the first instance. Later on the Mi MIX, Mi Note 2, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 5c, Mi Max 2, Mi Max, Mi 4S, Mi 4c, Mi Note Pro, and Redmi 4X were among the second batch of models that got updates recently. The third batch of updates would begin rolling to users on August 28 via OTA but you may need to set your device to be able to get automatic OTA update. Do note, though, that this is the China ROM and not the Global ROM. In addition, your device may not get all the functions of MIUI 9 as Xiaomi recently released a list of models that support Split screen multitasking function and it only included models running Android Nougat based MIUI.

  • When should Redmi note 4 be expecting global stable ROM update of miui 9?

    Why call it an update when is still the same android version? Miui9 on some devices is android nougat and some remains on an older android version. Is xiaomi trying to ripoff their customers using the same version name for different OS versions? We might as well install a 3rd party launcher, which is exactly what xiaomi is giving some devices! Its a complete ripoff!

      To xiaomi users , the android version doesn’t count much because the MIUI9 version is the real difference

      • MC Wong

        Thanks for the clarification, however undeniably, there will be at least 2 versions of miui9. One with split screens plus other great features and the other is a watered down version without split screens and minus those features. Some devices gets a real
        OS update and the rest gets only an updated miui9 UI (new icons, home screen, etc). To be more precise, the Redmi note 4 SD vs the Redmi note 4 MTK. Sounds like ripoff for MTK customers?
        If other manufacturers using the same MTK X20 has upgraded to android nougat and xiaomi updates the UI.

    Using Redmi Note 3 SD, and it will be my last Mi phone. As it won’t be getting Android Nougat. It was Xiaomi’s most successful model launched in India after RN4. I am very disappointed and unsatisfied with Xiaomi. And that’s not only because of I am not getting newer Android versions but also because of lack of software quality in all with Xiaomi phones. I am using RN3 SD past year and believe me it’s OS is buggy as hell. Sometimes the touchscreen won’t work, sometimes headphones won’t, and camera is just awful in indoor scenes.
