Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 is one of the most popular smartphones in India, with sales reaching over 2.5 million, within eight months of launch. That said, the phone was launched in India running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop based MIUI 7, and was updated to MIUI 8, but the Android flavor was still the same. However, now it is getting Android Marshmallow in beta form.
The Chinese smartphone maker has started rolling out Android Marshmallow along with the MIUI 18.104.22.168.MHOMIDI OTA update as nightly build to Redmi Note Pro in India. The update size is hefty 1.3GB and is available for select users randomly.
