Another Xiaomi phone has started receiving the MIUI 9.2 update. The company is now rolling out the update to the Redmi 4A. The smartphone was launched in India in March last year with MIUI 8 based on Android Marshmallow. However, it was later updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat while the custom ROM remained the same.
