Redmi Note 4 is undoubtedly the most popular smartphone of the year. The phone comes with snapdragon 625 chipset and has three RAM variants 2/3/4 Gb. Xiaomi has already rolled out the Nougat update in the November 2017 and has received MIUI 9 on top of it. However, there is a very less chance that Redmi Note 4 will receive the Oreo update as the company has already provided one major update to it. But Xiaomi is constantly giving the monthly security updates and bug fixes.
Many users who don’t want to stuck to the MIUI can install Custom ROMs to get the latest Android Oreo on their phone. We have already seen many stable Oreo based custom ROMs on XDA and the users have already reported it should further improve the battery life and performance of the phone however we don’t recommend installing any Custom ROM on your phone.
There are many guides on XDA which you can use to get the latest Android Oreo on Redmi Note 4. Many Custom ROM providers are working on the latest source code to provide you the with latest Android Experience. LineageOS is one the highest installed custom ROM on smartphones.

Mi A1 got the Official Update
However, few days earlier Xiaomi rolled out Android Oreo update to its Xiaomi Mi A1 and it might have made it Xiaomi the first company to roll out this update. But as this phone is a part of Android One program we have expected it to receive the update first. Xiaomi has already started Beta testing of the Android Oreo update for Mi 6 smartphone.
Feature on Android Oreo
Android Oreo brings in features like Picture in Picture (PIP) mode, a brand new redesigned notification panel and many other features (See: Android Oreo Page).
Xiaomi’s Growing Presence Felt
Xiaomi is growing presence in emerging countries like India and Brazil where the demand of mid-range smartphones is very high. Xiaomi has been launching its phones in a very competitive price range. Due to the increase in Competitiveness in the mid-range segment other brands are also coming in to provide the best phones with great specifications and service support. Recently Xiaomi has replaced Samsung to reach at the top spot in India in terms of percentage mobile share and it is probably going to hold this position for a few years more until customers have their faith on the Brand.
