Xiaomi launched the affordable Redmi Note 3 in India in March and ever since its launch, the smartphone managed to garner a positive response from both critics and users alike. And why not, it offers a pretty decent experience for what it's worth and is one of the best value-for-money devices out there in the sub-Rs. 10,000 price segment.
Having said that, sadly, the smartphone came with Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box which is sort of obsolete now. It did receive the MIUI 8 update which was unveiled alongside the Xiaomi Mi Max earlier this year but it was still based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Thankfully, the company has finally started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI 18.104.22.168.MHOMIDI update to the Redmi Note 3 users in India. This OTA update is just a Nightly Build - a Beta version and is not to be confused with the final and stable version. Expect the final version to be released once all the testing has been done.
The OTA update is 1.3GB in size and is being rolled out to random users currently. Apart from a few bug fixes and optimizations, going by the change-log of the update, nothing new has been introduced. In case you are curious about the update and want to check it out right away, here's the link for the OTA Zip file. GizBot won't be responsible if something goes south during the installation process, do flash your device at your own risk.
