Eligible Xiaomi Mobiles to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow Upgrade

After sharing the list of Xiaomi phones to get MIUI 7 update, we are back with another list of eligible Xiaomi smartphones to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade. Most probably Xiaomi Mi5 would be the first Xiaomi device to run on Android Marshmallow OS out of the box. It is the company flagship smartphone scheduled to launched somewhere in November this year. It is the most waiting smartphone of the year which packs with powerful specifications and features.


Google, the developer of Android OS already announced its latest operating system, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Coming Tuesday, September 29th Google has organised an event to launched its latest Nexus devices which will be running on Android Marshmallow out of the box. Thereafter, the various OEM companies will rollout update to their respective high-end devices.

Xiaomi will also release Android M update to its devices all over the world. It might be based on MIUI 8, which can be released in the first quarter of 2016. To know the eligible devices to get the upgrade, here below we shared a complete list.

Xiaomi Phones to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow update:

  • Xiaomi Mi4
  • Xiaomi Mi4i
  • Xiaomi Mi4c
  • Xiaomi Note 2 (& Prime)
  • Redmi 2 (& Prime)
  • Mi Note Pro
  • Mi Note
  • Redmi Note 3 (Pro)
  • Xiaomi Mi4s
  • Mi5
  • Redmi 3

The above list is just an assumption from our side till Xiaomi releases the official list of devices to be upgraded for Marshmallow.

    Sir I have updated my redmi 2prime to MIUI 7 but the android version is still kitkat. When will it be upgradable to lollipop?

    • bololabich

      Probably never 😛 cuz there is no point of such update cuz MIUI on 4.4 and 5.0/1 works just the same, on kitkat there are even less problems with some apps.

        Redmi note 2 prime ,I’m on miui v7 6.1.31 its android version 5,0.2LRX22G, I’m waiting android M also ,but they basically all the same as miui is heavy on the android ,but I do like it more than other oem skins ,it is heavy but it works well ,as well as having its own nice feautres ,I cannot see android M making too much different in the miui ROMs ,they stick to what they know an what works

  • skajdrajver

    xiaomi mi 3 ?

    • manuel

      mi3 & mi4 on MIUIv7 still use kitkat 4.4 …
      You should be aware, that when you buy chines phone, OS update come late or don’t come at all.

      • Nuno Picado

        Funny you should say that, because:

        My Chinese Xiaomi phone has weekly updates, while my Japanese Sony phone had a single update since its launch four years ago…

        My Chinese Xiaomi phone was released with Android 5.0.2 and is scheduled to have Android 6.
        My wife’s Chinese THL phone was released with Android 4.4.2 and was updated to Android 5.0.2 little after its release.
        My Japanese Sony phone was released with Android 4.0.3 and four years later, it has Android 4.0.3 because no Android updates were ever released…

    • Ankit Subehia

      It will not be upgraded to lolipop straight to marshmallow.Maybe early next year.

      thing about “chinese Phones” is that you can get a custom ROM like CM
      13 and taste marshmallow right away without voiding the warranty.

  • Boompaneth

    Hi how about redmi note 3?

  • Ravindra Munvar

    I highly doubt any of the older devices will ever receive a Android 6 update. MI3 never received Android 5 officially. So guys dont bet on Xiaomi supporting anything.

  • Ardhi Nobuna

    Redmi note 3 cant get marshmallow update ??

    • pandicul

      pro only means the 3GB/32 . 16MP and snapdragon variant

      • kishote

        Ya…3gb ram / 32 ROM varient

        • Shubham Sengupta

          No,the one with snapdragon variant is called pro in China,

    • Shubham Sengupta

      The one which runs on snapdragon chipset will get the update so relax

  • Alexander Pavlov
