It might have taken more than week for Redmi Note 4G users in India get their share of MiUi 6 update but it’s finally here, reaching your devices as we speak. We first heard about the possibility of latest MiUi version rolling out to Redmi Note 4G via the company’s MiUi forum which got updated with MiUi 6 ROM for Redmi Note 4G shared for users.
In late January, Xiaomi launched the 2014 flagship smartphone, the Mi 4 in India. The Mi 4 was shipped with the latest operating system from MIUI, V6. During the launch event of the Mi 4 in India, Hugo Barra, Global VP for Xiaomi, announced that the new MIUI V6 operating system was pre-installed on the Mi 4, but will also be available for the rest of the Xiaomi handsets sold in India. This includes the Redmi Note, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 1S and Mi 3 handsets. However, the handsets will receive the V6 update only a few weeks later, which falls between February and March. During this period, the update will be released over the air (OTA).
Now, if you’re assuming that the MIUI 6 update for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will bump the smartphone to Android 5.0 Lollipop, you’re in for some serious disappointment. Instead, you’ll be getting a small update from version 4.4.2 to 4.4.4.
The MIUI V6 update goes by the name ‘MIUI V126.96.36.199 (KHIMIBL)’ and is a stable release. So if you have registered to eth Xiaomi account, you should be seeing the update alerts on your screen. To update, make sure you have taken adequate backups. Backing up using the internal backup app from MIUI is the best option, which saves the app and the data along with it.
With the goodness of MiUi 6 expect your Redmi Note 4G to become slick and equipped with better features. It is highly expected that once MiUi 6 update for Redmi Note 4G are rolled out, Redmi 1S should be the next possible destination for Xiaomi.Share
