In any case, the list launched today by the technology giant contains 14 smartphones. Ten of these terminals will receive Nougat version 7.0, namely Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi 5S and 5S Plus, Mi 4C, Mi 4S, Mi Note and Mi Note 2, Redmi Note 4X and Mi MIX.

Given its size, the company was being asked for more attention to its terminals and the software they use. Despite constantly releasing updates for MIUI, its own interface, the operating system, which is the basis of all the operation of the terminal itself, is forgotten.
