Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 finally gets Android Marshmallow worldwide
Android 7.0 Nougat has been around for a few months already but, as more and more handsets get the 7.0 update, some capable devices are still stuck with Android Lollipop. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, for example, launched less than a year ago, but the operating system pre-loaded back then was only Android 5.1.1.
Now, a few weeks after Indian users of this 5.5-inch handset begun to receive Android Marshmallow, the new firmware is finally heading for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 users worldwide. The update is massive, having no less than 1.3 GB in size. Obviously, all the Marshmallow goodies are included, as well as various MIUI improvements. The Marshmallow-exclusive features include Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, Android Pay support, improved permissions, easier to manage storage space, a new app drawer, and many others.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is still a good mid-ranger, featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor and 2 GB/16 GB or 3 GB/32 GB memory/storage configurations. Unfortunately, it might never get Android Nougat, but that remains to be seen.
