Gizchina News of the week
The update brings the device to MIUI 8.5 Global ROM which comes with Google’s security update for July and has a size of approximately 1.3GB – which is normal as the whole procedure “moves” the OS from Marshmallow to Nougat.
Note however that there’s still no sign of MIUI 9 as the aforementioned ROM is Global and Xiaomi is currently focusing their efforts on updating China ROMs with their latest UI. As always in these circumstances – if you’re an owner of a Redmi Note 4X (Snapdragon) with Global ROM – you can check for the update via the update app or wait a bit until it appears on your status bar.
