When Xiaomi unveiled the MIUI 7 ROM, a lot of fans were disappointed as it was based on Android 4.4 KitKat rather than the latest 5.0 Lollipop. However, Xiaomi had mentioned that despite the Android version, features of the MIUI 7 ROM will remain the same on all of its devices. It seems like most devices running on Android 4.4 KitKat based MIUI ROM would skip Android 5.0 Lollipop and directly get updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
It is important to note that this is just the beta stage after which one can expect the developer version, followed by the final, stable release via OTA in a couple of months. As of now it isn t sure as to when Xiaomi will release the update, but we will keep you posted as more information emerges.
