  • The Redmi Note 4G does not have lollipop, so does the 3G variant. If only I could send a screenshot to prove it, because I'm using the Redmi Note 4G running on MIUI 7.1

    • Thanks for the comment Tan, you are correct: neither 3G variant nor 4G variant run Android Lollipop.

      • MIUI 7.2 , the global version, will most like be based on Marshmallow, as the Chinese version is also based on Marshmallow. Xiaomi says that the global update will roll out soon.
