Xiaomi Finally Rolls Out Nougat Update To The Redmi Note 4 In India

Xiaomi said earlier this year that the Redmi Note 4 was the best-selling phone in India, and the company is now announcing a new milestone: 5 million sales. To commemorate the occasion, Xiaomi built the world's largest grain mosaic at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in New Delhi.

The mosaic features over 88,000 lbs (40,000 kgs) of grains — including pulses and rice — with Xiaomi donating the grains to feed 5 lakh people on India's upcoming Independence Day on August 15.

As for the Nougat update, if you're looking to stay on the stable release channel, your best bet is to wait for the OTA update to MIUI 8.5.4.0. If you don't mind flashing the MIUI 9 beta build, head here to get started.
