The important thing to note here is that the update is not based on the latest Android Pie or Marshmallow. Instead, Xiaomi has coded the stable MIUI 10.2 update for Redmi Note 3 on the dated Android 6.0 Marshmallow. What this means is that users updating the old Redmi Note 3 to the latest MIUI 10.2 will not be able to enjoy all the benefits and features of the latest software skin. The MIUI 10.2 update for Redmi Note 3 will let users enjoy the 'Split Screen' feature and some other software features.
