The device was launched earlier this year with Android Marshmallow pre-installed. But this update will bump the operating system version to 7.0. It will bring all the goodies of Nougat along with it.
The update is larger in size weighing in at around 1.3GB so before downloading it make sure your device is charged up to 80 percent and you are connected to a decent internet connection.
The device is also scheduled to get MIUI 9 update later on this month.
As usual, it’s an over-the-air update will take a couple of days to reach every unit as it rolls out gradually. If you are one of those who can’t wait for the update you can also check it manually by heading to the Settings menu of your device.
