Chinese smartphone vendor Xiaomi Mobile has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat update for Xiaomi Mi Max.
The update has started appearing in devices in Germany and would be
propagated to the remaining countries soon. The build number for the
update stands at MIUI 126.96.36.199.
The update is available only for 3 GB variants currently and nothing has been confirmed or reported about 4 GB variants.

many other vendors, Xiaomi prefers to customize the raw Android with Mi
flavor. As a result, the ultimate update will be somewhat different than
what we have noticed so far in Nougat phones. The new features will
include more efficient CPU resource allocation, new toggles for common
settings in search results, a new choice to hide the content of
notifications on the lock screen, and better optimization facilities.

wait for an automatic update notification or check the update themselves
manually through the settings.

frequently of late. Very recently, an ambiguous video had appeared
online which showed a user unlocking a Xiaomi Mi6
with a fingerprint sensor embedded under the display and the company
has also launched a range of accessories like Mi Wi-Fi Repeater 2, Mi
Bluetooth Speaker Mini and Mi Power Bank 2 in India this past week. The
Xiaomi Mi Max is the predecessor of the latest high-end device Xioami Mi Max 2, It will release a Snapdragon 660 version.
