Android Nougat on MIUI 8 will be released soon as the beta version for testing is already out.
Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 4 sold in India will be getting the Android Nougat within a few weeks for now. The global beta release is already out for testing and the final version will roll out soon.
Xiaomi launched the next version of Redmi Note 3, the Redmi Note 4 in India this month. The device is aggressively priced for the mid-range market with the device pitting itself against rival handsets with similar configuration with almost half the price of the latter.
Redmi Note 4 was launched in China some time back and Xiaomi has brought the device to India. However, while the Chinese variant sports the deca-core Helio chipset, the Indian version is powered by a Snapdragon 625 chipset with 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB variants. The device has a similar design seen on the Xiaomi Mi Max launched earlier with a 2.5D 5.5-inch full HD display and a metal body. Xiaomi said that the Redmi Note 4 is first launched in India with the Snapdragon-based chipset.
The RN4 is presently available for Rs 9,999 for the 2GB/32GB version, while the 3GB/32GB and the 4GB/64GB versions are is available for Rs 10,999 and Rs 12,999 respectively. The Redmi Note 4 has an improved camera as compared to the Chinese variant and is a major upgrade from the Redmi Note 3.
