MIUI 9.0 with Android 7.0 Nougat is in beta testing mode and the stable version will be released soon. The MIUI operations manager who posted in Weibo didn’t mention the exact date when the company will begin to roll out the update.
A few popular devices including Xiaomi Mi 2, Mi 2S, Mi 3, Mi 4 and Redmi 1S will not receive the update. These devices are not compatible with the Vulcan API used in Android 7.0 Nougat.
