Xiaomi Mi 6 Android 10 up for grabs as Evolution X 4.4 custom ROM (Download link inside)

The Xiaomi Mi 6 was one of the best Android smartphones to be released in 2017. It launched with Android 7.1.1 Nougat and received the update to Android 8 Oreo as well as Android 9 Pie. But Xiaomi, like most other vendors, releases at least 2 major Android updates for its devices.

Android 9 Pie was the second major Android update for the Mi 6. Thus, users were wondering whether it will get the Android 10 update. Well, just a day ago, we reported that the device will not be getting the MIUI 12 or Android 10 update.

Hence, the device will no longer receive any major upcoming Android versions. Further, it will not be getting MIUI updates as well. This information is a tad disappointing to Mi 6 users. However, if you read the title, you already know what’s coming.


In the Android world, newer Android updates aren’t necessarily brought to devices only by official channels. Thanks to the developer community, users get to try out the latest Android features even on devices that are no longer supported by OEMs.

Xiaomi Mi 6 users can now rejoice since they can now get Android 10 with the Evolution X 4.4 custom ROM. This custom ROM has been around for a while now and offers a Pixel-like UI for enthusiasts.

Further, it brings a ton of customization options along with all the features that were introduced with Android 10 to the Mi 6. The information about Evolution X 4.4 for the Mi 6 was shared on the Mi Community forums.
