The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is almost certainly due to be upgraded to Android Marshmallow, but we're still wondering when.

  • You can get this phone with 120$ from ali express

  • Its already 7.02.2.....

  • Marshmallow is on the newest redmi note 2 pro along with a fingerprint scanner. I can't see that justifying the almost 100% increase in price. $169 vs $300.

    Given Apple's snafu with the fingerprint scanner repairs bricking the iphones, fingerprint scanning is something I run backwards from until hardware implementation catches up with software.

    The Redmi Note 2 Prime is working good with lollipop for me and Miui 7.1.40 at the $169 price point.

      You are thinking of Redmi Note 3, not 2. There are 2 versions. RMN3 which uses the Mediatek Helio x10 cpu and Redmi Note 3 Pro that uses the Snapdragon 650 cpu.

      Neither of them runs Marshmallow.

  • Ahhh yes thanks for pointing that out. Should have made that clearer!

    miui 7.1 is not based on lollipop. devices that had miui 6 on KitKat received miui 7/7.1 on KitKat and devices which had lollipop received miui 7/7.1 on lollipop.
