Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 4 in January 2017 and since then, the device has received numerous updates. The last OS update for the smartphone was the Android 7 Nougat-based MIUI 11.

Since the device has already received a major OS update, Xiaomi will not be pushing any more Android updates for it. This is simply due to the fact that Xiaomi currently provides only one major OS update to Redmi devices.


However, like other phone users, Redmi Note 4 users are also eager to try out Android 10. Xiaomi has not announced whether the device will get the much anticipated MIUI 12 update. But there is still some good news for those who want to stick to the same device.

While MIUI offers a lot of features to the users, there are some who want a simple UI packed with a few but awesome features. The development of Custom ROMs has come a long way and the platform has been offering the latest Android updates to many old devices.

There are many developers that build device-specific custom ROMs and Pixel Experience is a great example. Since Redmi Note 4 will not get an Android 10 upgrade officially, Pixel Experience has come to its rescue.
