Google has finally confirmed the official name of its next version of operating system last week. It’s “Nougat” and brings the version Android 7.0. Like every time we do, here also we have shared the list of Xiaomi Mi & Redmi devices that are expected to get Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Xiaomi is one of the OEM Company who has always disappointed its fans for not providing major Android updates in time. The company in-turn concentrates on its own custom MIUI ROM and recently it has announced MIUI 8 update which brings several new features and customization options compared to current MIUI 7 ROM. You can also check our list of eligible Xiaomi devices to get MIUI 8 China/Global Stable update. But things change very quickly and Xiaomi is one of the giant who won’t repeat the mistake now. Google will also create a ranking system for Android device manufacturers based on how quickly they provides major Android updates. Seeing this, Xiaomi will sure make efforts to update their Mi & Redmi series smartphones to Android Nougat firmware.
The Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update will be available first for the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X flagship smartphones, then rolls out to other OEM devices including Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola, Asus, OnePlus, Huawei, ZTE, and more.
