Xiaomi has already announced MIUI 7 version for most of its smartphones in China. Many of the users have already started receiving the update, but for some, things weren’t as exciting as expected. Many of the older models have received the update, but according to the change log, MIUI 7 didn’t upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop version, instead, its still on Android 4.4 Kitkat. Now, this was surprising given that everyone expected MIUI 7 to be based on the updated Android 5.0 version.

However, time and again, Xiaomi has stressed that MIUI 7 is not based on a single Android version. In fact, there is no particular relation between MIUI 7 and the Android version on which it runs. As a result, its possible to get MIUI 7 even on phones based on Android 4.4.
Users who got the update and were stuck on Android 4.4 started criticizing Xiaomi’s MIUI team as they expected their phones to be upgraded to Android 5.0 with the new MIUI 7. Now, Sun Peng, MIUI development Engineer has come forward to clarify a few things about the MIUI 7 OTA update.

He says that Xiaomi or MIUI is not to be blamed for this. It’s actually the fault of the chip manufacturers who don’t update their chipsets. As a result, even though MIUI team is anxious to upgrade all Xiaomi smartphones to the latest MIUI 7 based on Android 5.0, its not really in their hands to do so. So, if you are one of those unfortunate users who have a slightly old device (like Redmi 1S), you’ll probably get the new update but based on the old Android 4.4 KitKat version.



MIUI 7 is definitely a great upgrade irrespective of the Android version that it is based on. The company has said that the system optimization of the UI has helped increase the speed by up to 30% which the user will will reflect in the phone’s everyday performance. So, even if you are stuck with Android 4.4, you should see some performance improvements and feature additions with the new MIUI 7.

Xiaomi will released MIUI 7 internationally today.


So, what do you think about this? Will you be happy with performance improvements on MIUI that’s based on Android 4.4? Or are you disappointed to hear that some phones may not upgrade to Android 5.0?

Totally rubbish to demand free updates for years and years after buying a phone. You bought it with Kit Kat and it was good enough then. What has changed that made it less good now? It is what you bought, after all!

*IF* Xiaomi updates your phone for free, you should be THANKFUL. But you have no right to demand ANYTHING more from them, unless you pay.

Comment

atulanand This is such a weak argument. Any respectable OEM provides Android updates for at least one generation. The incompetent developers of Xiaomi are probably not talented enough to upgrade the software.  12:34, Sep-03-2015

Most of snapdragon 800/801 devices have lollipop update,  but when we look to xiaomi devices, there is no lollipop upgrade to devices, you can't blame manufacturers, beacuse most of popular devices have lollipop upgrade.  Ex: moto g 1st gen(s400), moto g 2nd(s410), Xperia z 1/2/3 (s800/s801), nvidia shield(Tegra k).

Other Stable and Ivans ROMS have Android L, as long as they exists, its not the chipmakers fault, its just Xiaomi's unwillingness.

Mi3 and Mi4 can be upgraded to L, but they just afraid they might brick the user's devices as it includes modification of partition table.


If independant developers can port from similar chipsets and get Lollipop running on devices that dont even have their sources out(Redmi Note 3g), which they arent even getting paid for and is done in the freetime of their busy lives, then the Xiaomi's dedicated developer team with a much bigger manpower should be able to do it too. I guess they are just lazy and yess... lets blame the chipset makers; I mean snapdragon is not releasing sources and poor xiaomi cant upgrade their devices, right?
