Redmi Note 4 MIUI 11 update goes live, brings Game Turbo and new UI (download link inside)

Xiaomi surprised the tech community by launching Mi A1 in 2017 as the first Android One phone. The Snapdragon 625 SoC powered phone is still supported, though Android 10 update is highly unlikely. That said, Xiaomi had an unusual bias towards the SD625 chipset.

The 2018 Mi A2 Lite is also based on Snapdragon 625

In fact, Xiaomi introduced this chip to a global audience with the release of Redmi Note 4 (also known as Redmi Note 4X in some regions). Successor to the much-loved Redmi Note 3, the phone has played a key role in strengthening the foundations of OEM in the mid-range segment.

Redmi Note 4 was launched with Android Marshmallow and received the official Nougat update after a few months. Xiaomi was updating the MIUI skin for this phone for a while, but the global version has stopped receiving security patches since February this year.

Redmi Note 4

To be precise, the software version V10.2.3.0.NCFMIXM with the December security patches was the last OTA for the international variant of the phone. Thanks to a large community, Redmi Note 4 unofficially received stable roms based on Oreo, Pie and even Android 10.

Here comes the surprise! The phone is reportedly receiving a stable MIUI 11 update globally. Like Mi Max 2 or Redmi Y1/Y1 Lite, the underlying Android layer is still based on Android 7.0 Nougat.


The full changelog for this new release (V11.0.2.0.NCFMIXM) is as follows:

Although the addition of a new document viewer or Game Turbo is nice, Xiaomi does not put any kind of update regarding the security patch level. MIUI 11 update for Redmi Note 4(X) is still powered by December 2018 patcheset!
