Xiaomi has been sending out updates to the Redmi Note 3 to fix issues and increase device performance as well as stability. The company today also announced its new giant 6.44-inch phablet the Mi Max which runs on Android Marshmallow based MIUI 8 with which we were hoping that Xiaomi would also announce plans for updating the Snapdragon variant of the Redmi Note 3 to Marshmallow. But at present there is no definite timeline as to when the MIUI 8 with Marshmallow update would arrive in India for the Redmi Note 3.
