MIUI framework is same across all Android versions, it really doesn't matter if it's Lollipop or Android X.

Compare for example Redmi 3 (Android 5.1) and Mi 5(Android 7.0).
Both are Xiaomi devices, different Android versions and still have all same features.

Unfortunately, Mi 4i can't receive higher API Android version due to SoC drivers. If there is more cooperation between manufacturers and vendors, even old Redmi 1S could run Android N based MIUI - sadly it just isn't possible. We understand that users are disappointed and even angry, but really we can't do anything about it.

i know,
but you should know that with every android update, there is an "android security patch level" the latest would be february or march 2017 by this time,
and guess what, the mi4i is left behind far away still in 2016,
you know the risk of every CVE vulnerability right?
and don't tell that MIUI is not using the "android security patch level" created by google...

and about that all soc drivers, why i've seen some cyanogen and ported rom could run marshmellow on this device? and they have fewer bugs and issues than the official release,
and don't tell me that because ported rom has marshmellow, so the official don't have to make update

and the bottom of that, of all the devices, of all the miui and system updates, we, the mi4i is considered one of the xiaomi smartphone with tons of bugs of issues...

well, there always something that could be done,
some other brand is offering tradein, replacement, refund,
how about that?
always believe that something wonderful is about to happen . . . . . . . not?

ROM development is different branch because you can compile from other sources.

what do you mean "different" branch? are they not directly under xiaomi?is xiaomi outsourcing dev team to work for their firmware? (this is considered not safe/secure)
is miui dev team an outsourcing team work for xiaomi?
well, if this is the case no wonder why mi4i always get error-bugs-issues, i wonder where xiaomi outsourced the project?
(they should consider for replacement team)

You don't get it. They rely on SoC drivers and vendors.
It is different when you try to compile by yourself and do a port ROM since you can "use" pieces from others.

i see, the official rely on SoC drivers and vendors, while the ported work from something else,

so from the starting point, the failure is the SoC drivers, and nothing can be done to fix this?
and if this can't be fixed,
that means the mi4i can be reconsidered as defected,

regard the SoC and vendors, by my point of view, the android security patch level still can get upgrade, right? what prevents it?


and about the bugs and issues, i don't think that related to SoC and vendors issue, i think it's simply purely error in codes

Nothing can be done about it, you can try to make complaint against Qualcomm but it won't do anything.

Long story short, Mi 4i can't receive Android update and that's it.
For security patches, make sure you use latest Developer ROM.
