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.

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.
