However, like said above, the update is still based on ageing Android Nougat. At a time when most of the manufacturers like Asus, Huawei, OnePlus, and more are providing the Android Oreo update to most of its smartphones, Xiaomi is still stuck with Android Nougat. The company has been known for not providing the latest update to its users within a time frame, which at of the day, does hamper company’s image. It is high-time for Xiaomi to start rolling out the latest update, at least, to its hot-selling smartphones to retain the number 1 position in the Indian smartphone industry.
