Xiaomi Mi Mix will get Android Nougat-based MIUI 9 update soon – Details

MIUI 9, the next big update after MIUI 8 is already in its initial development stage. Some of the Xiaomi devices are already into this Android 7.0-based MIUI 9 beta testing programme including the Mi 5, Mi 4c, Mi 4s, and Mi Note. Apart from this, we have another device dubbed as Mi Mix which is also eligible to get MIUI 9 update based on Android Nougat.

MIUI 9 based Android 7.0 Nougat update

According to the reports, MIUI Alpha tester is already testing MIUI 9 on Mi Mix. Once the ROM is convinced to be stable, it will be gradually rolled out to public. There is no exact time frame for the roll out, but it is expected somewhere in Q1 2017.

While it is nice to hear that Xiaomi is bringing Android 7.0 to their smartphones as the company always disappointed its fans for not providing regular Android updates. Hopefully, Xiaomi is seeing sense this time around.

To remind you, Xiaomi Mi Mix was announced back in October this year starting for 3499 Yuan (US$ 516 / Rs. 34530 approx.). On the display front, it sports a 6.4-inch display and is powered with a 2.35GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 821 64-bit processor coupled with Adreno 530 GPU. Other specs adds a 4GB/6GB RAM, 128GB/256GB internal storage, runs on Android Marshmallow, 16MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, 5MP front camera and a 4400mAh battery capacity with Quick Charge 3.0 feature.

Stay tuned as we will update once the update goes live for Mi Mix.

    A month since the last query. I just ordered a MI MIX, Global Version, from China. Do you think it will come with Nougat?

      I have ordered it in June from gearbest. It came with MM only. This is highly disappointing from Xiaomi

    Hi Espen, have you sorted out the notification problem? i too had this issue on my MiMix.. got me super depressed..but the i found out that if you lock the apps you want notifications from then they work. almost all of the apps you havwe running in the background gets closed down when the screen turns off..this to save battery i guess.
    so if you go to the shortcut where you see all your current running apps and slide the symbols down so you can see the lock then you should be good to go:) the other problems you mention however i cant relate to..but really hope you will work it out!
