Xiaomi Mi Max finally receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update
Unfortunately, the Mi Max was a Chinese affair, as the large phone was hardly available through official channels in other countries. On top of that, it took Xiaomi more than a year to provide those who purchased the Mi Max with an Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Well, it appears that Xiaomi has finally kicked off the roll-out of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Mi Max, which is based on the global MIUI 126.96.36.199. The update brings a lot of changes, including a better and more efficient COU allocation strategy, new toggles for common settings in search results, as well as a new option for hiding the content of notifications on lock screen.
The update also brings the May security patch and lots of improvements and under the hood optimizations. However, it's worth noting that the update is only available for the Xiaomi Mi Max model that packs 3GB RAM (sorry Xiaomi Mi Max Prime owners).
