Android 6.0 Marshmallow is already running on most of Google’s Nexus devices along with other mobile devices that have been manufactured by other companies. It seems that the developers from Xiaomi are now preparing to release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update for a few devices manufactured by them.
According to GizmoChina, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update is in its final testing stages for the Xiaomi Mi 3, Xiaomi Mi Note and Xiaomi Mi 4. If all the tests go well, these three devices will receive the latest Android OS version.
According to reports, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update will also come with a new version of MIUI 7. When Xiaomi unveiled the new MIUI 7, many fans were quite disappointed that most of the devices which were going to get the new update will be stuck on Android 4.4 KitKat or Android 5.0 Lollipop. However, Xiaomi assured the users that they should not worry about the Android version, as the features added to MIUI 7 will be the compatible across all devices.
Earlier this month, a report revealed that MIUI Operations Manager has posted on Weibo that the Xiaomi Mi 3, Xiaomi Mi Note and Xiaomi Mi 4 will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA Update. In addition, the manager also confirmed that the users will receive the latest Android version soon and the company has already started rolling out the software to its community of beta testers.
It seems that more and more devices are leaving the Android Lollipop behind. More capable mobile devices will start receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow sometime in early 2016. We’re expecting to see more devices from big mobile phone manufactures such as Samsung or LG to start receiving the latest Android OS version soon.
