Of every single device that has make a huge hit in the Chinese market, the Xiaomi Mi MIX has been one of the greatest, given the fact that this was one of the best smartphones last year, to the point in which many analysts considered it as the cornerstone of a smartphone revolution, thanks to its design and display. Just as many important companies do when a product is quite successful, Xiaomi has offered this handset with different changes or upgrades, and now it has made a move that its fans will definitely love: an incredible Nougat update.

Xiaomi Didn´t Announce When The Mi MIX Will Get The Nougat Update

Believe it or not, Geekbench's latest listing revealed that the Xiaomi is testing the Android 7.0 Nougat for the Mi MIX, which would definitely excel the handset´s quality to the point in which its popularity would definitely increase in the Chinese market, which seems quite necessary after Oppo made an incredible revolution with its R9. In fact, the listing shows that this Xiaomi Mi MIX might be a 6GB RAM variant of the phone, which includes a Snapdragon 821 processor. Actually, the greatest detail is that this Nougat-powered mobile device managed to hit 1,737 points in the single-core, and 4,117 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench.

Nevertheless, the thing is that even when Xiaomi confirmed that the Mi MIX will get this Nougat update, the thing is that the company didn´t provide the exact date, and only explained that this would be soon. Of course, many believe that this could happen in short term, given the fact that this Chinese giant needs to make this move as soon as possible in order to maintain its importance in China, considering that Xiaomi will not take the major leap to the global market, and its relevance in Asia´s first economy might be threatened.

This Nougat Update Won´t Include Some Features

In fact, what seems as a strategic move from Xiaomi is that the Mi MIX will not be the only mobile device to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update, since it´s known that this would also come to the Mi Note 2, Mi 5, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Redmi Note 4, and many other handsets. Naturally, in a moment in which the brand is forced to enhance its game, equipping its most important mobile devices with this update would be extremely helpful to keep its customers satisfied, which is one of the most important things that a company needs to do when is about to release its major products.

In any case, it is quite important to know that even when the Nougat update will bring several improvements to Xiaomi´s own MIUI 8, it is possible that customers won´t get the vast majority of features that were introduced by Google in 2016, at least based on the beta build. This means that the Mi MIX won´t have features like the threaded notifications since this will probably arrive with the MIUI 9 in the later part of this year which will also be Nougat-based. Nevertheless, having the most incredible Xiaomi´s smartphones with the Android 7.0 Nougat is definitely an outstanding leap of quality.
