In line with the previous report about Android Marshmallow being rolled out for select Xiaomi devices, a new GizmoChina report states that the update is in its final testing stages and will roll out soon.

Xiaomi has revealed that the company is testing Marshmallow for the Mi 3, Mi 4 and Mi Note, and will release an update soon, adds the report. It will release with a new version of MIUI 7, which was earlier based on an older Android iteration.

"Back when Xiaomi unveiled the brand new MIUI 7 ROM, many fans were disappointed to see that most of the devices which were going to get the new update would be stuck on Android 4.4, instead of Lollipop. At that time, Xiaomi had said that users shouldn’t be worried about the Android version as the features of the MIUI 7 would be the same on all devices," points out GizmoChina.

A report earlier this month revealed that MIUI Operations Manager had put out small post on Weibo stating the company’s Mi 4 and Mi Note smartphones will be the first ones in its line-up to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. More importantly, the manager also clarified that users would be getting the latest version of Android soon and that company has already rolled out the software to its closed beta testers community.
