I think its about time I dust off my Xiaomi Mi Note and get ready for this weeks Android 6 based MIUI update.
Apparently the 3GB RAM version of the Xiaomi Mi Note (the version with a 1080 display) will get a MIUI 7 based update this week with the main upgrade being the move to Android 6 Marshmallow.
Xiaomi have been beta testing the system in China for a while now, but at this stage we don’t know if the release will be a final release or a development ROM.
Gizchina News of the week
The Mi Note isn’t the only Chinese phone receiving Android 6 this week, the ZUK Z1 has also just receive CM13 nightlies, not to mention the Elephone P9000 shown off last week which Android 6 out of the box.
Mi 3 was seeded with pre 6.0 software update today and so was mi4.
Some MI Note users already got the 6.1.15 beta ROM today. Think twice before installing because it’s not stable enough and there is no possibility to return to previous software (another partition layout without dual-system)!
Chinese mobile phones should have more advertising in Europe and more more opportunities to test them
Greetings from Austria
Xiaomi will make it to Europe eventually. But they do very little traditional advertising. Most of their advertising is through social media and word of mouth.
MM rom is in beta testing for a while. I suppose that this update is China ROM, Global ROM will follow.
