Here’s the list of Xiaomi devices that will get Android Nougat updates

Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer which has super slim profit margins. understandably, with low-profit margins, it is hard to continually back devices by software updates as each device requires a team of developers. But Xiaomi has been very straightforward and honest by providing users with Android Nougat road map for its devices. It is something other Chinese OEMs can take a lesson or two. The list contains 14 devices and is divided into two sections. The first section for devices to receive Android 7.0 Nougat  The second list for devices to receive Android 7.1 Nougat.

What is most surprising is the exclusion of the Redmi Note 4 which was released late last year and should have been eligible for Android 7.0 Nougat at least.

Right now, Xiaomi is in advanced stages of developing MIUI 9 which has some pretty cool features apart from Nougat niceties.
