Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Android Nougat Update Confirmed for India Model
Highlights
  • Flipkart banner mentions Android Nougat update for Redmi Note 4
  • There is no release timeline set for the update as of now
  • Gadgets 360 has learnt the Nougat build is in beta testing phase

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was left off the list of smartphones getting the MIUI 9 build based on Android 7.0 Nougat when the list was released earlier this month. Now, however, a Flipkart teaser has confirmed the popular smartphone - which was also the highest selling smartphone in India the past quarter - is getting Android Nougat.

The Flipkart page for the Big Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Sale on August 2 includes towards the bottom a banner saying the Android Nougat update for the handset is coming "very soon." When contacted, a Xiaomi spokesperson said said they cannot confirm whether the phone will get Nougat. However, Gadgets 360 has learnt the Android Nougat build for RN4 is in beta phase at the moment. On the Flipkart listing page for the handset too, Android Nougat is mentioned as "upgradable operating system," though the version number has not been made clear.

To recall, the list of the devices ready for the Android 7.0 Nougat update included the Xiaomi Mi Max, Mi Note 2, Redmi Note 4X (launched as Redmi Note 4 in India), Mi MIX, Mi 5, Mi 5s, and Mi 5s Plus. On the other hand, the handsets ready for Android 7.1 Nougat were said to include the Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi Max 2, Mi 5c, and Redmi 4X (launched as the Redmi 4 in India).

While there is no confirmation about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 receiving elsewhere in the world, at least we now have the confirmation that it will get the Nougat treatment in India. It should be noted that the Redmi Note 4 variant sold in India is based on the China version of Redmi Note 4X rather than the Redmi Note 4. Therefore, and as we had pointed out earlier, the phone was scheduled to get the Nougat update. This confirmation will come as good news to those buyers in India who were unsure whether the device will get the update.

In terms of specifications, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display. The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with memory variants of 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB of RAM. The handset comes with a 13-megapixel primary rear camera and a 5-megapixel camera at front. The smartphone houses a massive 4100mAh battery.
