The spectacular Xiaomi Mi Mix would soon be getting the Android Nougat update. The smartphone was spotted running Android 7.0 on GeekBench, which could mean that the company is currently testing the update.
We already knew that Xiaomi is working on bringing Nougat to the Mi Mix. A beta should be available soon for interested users. There hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but Nougat is coming. The above screenshot from GeekBench also shows that the ROM is under testing.
The Mi Mix would be the second Xiaomi device to be updated to Nougat. The first was the Mi 5, which received the Nougat update in December last year. The Mi Mix currently runs on MIUI 8 ROM that’s based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Xiaomi will release a new MIUI 8 ROM that would be based on Android 7.0 Nougat instead. We aren’t sure when the update will be available, but it’s best to wait at least a month. Recently, a Mi Mix EVO with improved specs was also spotted on GeekBench.
