Great good news are coming this week for all those of you, holders of an Android smartphone or with the intention to have one soon. We already have release date for the Xiaomi Mi5 and its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi4, is getting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
If yesterday you were also happy with the news of Motorola Moto G 2014 going to update to Android 6.0 Mashmallow, we have another surprise to give: it is that the Xiaomi Mi4 will also receive the update and be part of the list of smartphones with the best OS version of Google. In addition it will not come alone, as the update will also come to the tablet Xiaomi Mi Note, although it seems that users who possess this device will have to wait a little longer to make it available, probably after February 24. But in the case of Xiaomi Mi4 today the remarkable thing is that it will go directly to version 6.0.1 as we have known.
As a reminder for those not having a Xiaomi Mi4, this smartphone right now has Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and the update is also based on China’s own company layer of customization, the MIUI 7. Luckily the update you receive in the phone is only about 100 MB, something really good in this case as important as for this update. Of course, despite the change to Marshmallow 6.0.1 it seems that Xiaomi will not add too many extras besides the update itself. What you see next step of installing the operating system is an improvement on the fluidity of the interface, which you will see is changed.
If you have the phone in your possession remember going through the same settings to install Android Marshmallow and enjoy the improvements. As a reminder, Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings Doze, a system that intelligently optimizes battery consumption when the terminal is not used, for example, while you are sleeping. Then also we enjoy Google Now on Tap, a new aspect of Google Now able to give us information concerning about what we are seeing on screen or as we’re talking in a conversation.
The management of individual native permits for apps is another feature that stands out from among the novelties of Marshmallow, as well as a renewed and more accessible volume control system and the ability to set the microSD card as a hard drive to take advantage of all its GB.
