Xiaomi ends software update cycle for Redmi Note 3 with final MIUI 10.2 rollout
The MIUI 10.2 update for Redmi Note 3 is built on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and comes with the July 2018 Android security patch
Chinese technology giant Xiaomi has pushed the final software update rollout for its 2016 budget smartphone- Redmi Note 3. Launched in India at Rs. 9,999 in March 2016, the smartphones' software update journey has come to an end with the final MIUI 10 stable update. This marks the end of official MIUI software releases for one of the most widely popular budget smartphone from the house of Xiaomi.
If you also happen to have the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, you can check for the final MIUI update from within the settings. The news came into light when Fonearena.com spotted some users on MIUI forums posting screenshots for the final MIUI 10.2 stable update for Redmi Note 3. The update has a serial number- MIUI 10.2.1.0 MHOMIXM and has a size of 178MB.
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.
The news for the final update for Redmi Note 3 might disappoint some users but it does not come as a surprise. Notably, Xiaomi announced the news for the final update for Redmi Note 3 in December 2018. The MIUI 10.2 stable update will also be the final update for Xiaomi Mi 5 smartphone.
