Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was left on the list of smartphones getting the MIUI 9 build based on the Android 7.0 nougat when the list was released earlier this month. Now, however, a Flipkart teaser has confirmed that the popular smartphone - which was also the most sold smartphone in India over the last quarter - got Android Nougat.

The Flipkart page for the Big Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Sale, August 2, includes a banner indicating that the Android nougat update for the handset arrives "very soon". When contacted, a spokesman for Xiaomi said they said they could not confirm if the phone would receive nougat. However, Gadgets 360 has learned that the construction of Nougat Android for RN4 is in beta at the moment. On the Flipkart display page for the handset, the Nougat Android is called "scalable operating system", although the version number is not clearly defined.

To summarize, the list of devices ready to update the Android 7.0 nougat included the Xiaomi Mi Max, note 2, Redmi Note 4X (launched under the name Redmi Note 4 in India), Mi MIX, Mi 5, Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus. On the other hand, the ready handsets for Android 7.1 Nougat would have included Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi Max 2, Mi 5c and Redmi 4X (launched as Redmi 4 in India).

Although there is no confirmation on Xiaomi Redmis Note 4 that receives elsewhere in the world, at least we now have confirmation that it will get nougat treatment in India. It should be noted that the Redmi Note 4 variant sold in India is based on the Chinese version of Redmi Note 4X rather than on Redmi Note 4. Therefore, and as noted earlier, the phone had to schedule Day of Nougat. This confirmation will come as good news for buyers in India who did not know if the device would receive the upgrade.
