Xiaomi Mi 5 gets Nougat via latest MIUI 8.2 update!

I guess if you’re a happy owner of a Xiaomi Mi 5 (China ROM) then this news will be music to your ears (and perhaps tears to your eyes). It seems that Xiaomi has released a MIUI 8.2 update for the aforementioned smartphone that – among all of its improvements – bumps it to Android 7.0 Nougat!

Oh yes, this is the first Xiaomi smartphone that gets Nougat so this is surely something to be proud of since Xiaomi Mi MIX/Mi Note 2 owners are still waiting. This MIUI 8.2 update comes with a hefty bunch of improvements and bug fixes such as a new security center, support for IFTTT task automation and a new desktop assistant.

It also comes with some new default Xiaomi system sounds when you take a screenshot, lock/unlock the phone or when the Xiaomi Mi 5 is charging. This new update brings also a new redesigned notification bar that offers clear, unobstructed view of all incoming notifications.

If you’re getting ready to update, be prepared since it’s 1.3GB large so be prepared to download it from here, after you read this guide. It’s for the Chinese ROM so the International ROM owners will have to wait until they get theirs.
