Several months after receiving a stable update to MIUI 10 and Android 8.1 Oreo, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 is getting another update and this time with the release of the MIUI 10.3 stable package.
The update weighs in at 477MB and shifts the build number of the software to MIUI 10.3.1.0.NAMMIXM, though it only ships with the older October 2018 Android security update. The update adds a new SOS mode inside the status bar, allows users to avoid notification shade access in the lock screen and changes the way battery percentage is displayed on the status bar.

Additionally, the update ships several fixes to the Redmi 4 software including issues regarding long time to end calls, floating notification/status bar shortcut appearing simultaneously, device charging icon not displaying, incorrect WhatsApp notification badges and more.
In order to check for the latest update, users can go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates,> Check for updates. The company has shared Fastboot and Recovery ROM links for the smartphones, in order to manual flash the MIUI 10 Stable update. The update is available as an incremental package and users can wish to manually flash the package through the updater app on their phone.
The Redmi 4 came with a metal unibody design and a 5-inch HD 2.5D curved display with the resolution of 720×1280 pixels. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 435 chipset with Adreno 505 GPU, 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal storage. The device originally came running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and MIUI 8, so it’s certainly good to see Xiaomi still working on the development of its three-year-old device.
