It is no shocking to see the final update for this device. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was launched in March 2016 in Indian Market. However, There are a lot of developers providing the latest Android updates through Custom ROMs. Although Xiaomi could not give Android Noughat on the device, Custom ROMs are running latest Android PIE on the KENZO device.
I have been personally using the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 for quite a while & I am well satisfied with my investment on this device. However, I do not have any plans to upgrade because of the constant Developer Support for this device. By far, this was one of the best device sold with Snapdragon 660 in India along with 4,000 mAh battery, 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage, etc.
After the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi has launched four new devices under their Note Series. Recently, Redmi was launched as the Sub-Brand of Xiaomi and successfully launched the Redmi Note 7. Also, Redmi Note 7 Pro is coming very soon with Snapdragon 675, 48 MP Camera, etc.
The Final update for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has been published by the brand. Users will get the official MIUI update in a few days. Or you can even download the file from the link below and update through the Updater app.
What to do now?
If you want the latest Android updates, You should probably switch to Custom ROMs on your device. With Custom ROMs, You will get the latest security patch & amazing features. There are different ways of unlocking bootloader, which will make it easier to flash custom ROMs.
You can stick to MIUI if you love the MIUI experience. Also, there are a lot of MIUI based Custom ROMs which you can try on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Kenzo). As this is already confirmed, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 will not get further updates from MIUI as it has been more than 3 years for this device, It is suggested to switch to Custom ROMs/Rooting the device.
Best Android PIE ROMs for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
There are a lot of ROMs available for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 but I have been using only a few after testing most Android Pie ROMs. I have suggested a list of ROMs you can try on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
HavocOS Android PIE
HavocOS is one of the ROMs I have been using for a long time. Until now, I am very happy with the experience of this ROM. You can toggle different customization features, Better STOCK experience, PIXEL Ringtones & much more.
So far, HavocOS is the one ROM which I can recommend to any Redmi Note 3 (Kenzo) user. The only downside of this ROM was the fact that it doesn’t have any feature for “Double Tap to Wake”. I have been using DT2W feature on almost all ROMs before but HavocOS didn’t have the feature in v2.1. Other than that, I have been loving this HavocOS Android Pie ROM.
ArrowOs Android PIE
ArrowOS is another ROM which I can recommend for your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 if you are interested in Android Pie. It is an amazing ROM, I used the ROM recently and then switched to HavocOS. I can definitely say there were no major upgrades over ArrowOS, It can be your choice of ROM.
The Main Reason while switching to new ROM was the lack of customization options. There were only a few customization options available on the ArrowOS when I tried it. As you might probably now, I like customization a lot. Other than that, ArrowOS will work well if you are not into much customization.
Did not receive final MIUI update?
If you have not received the final MIUI update, You should wait for the official update. The update has been rolled out in different slots, You will soon get the final MIUI 10.2 update on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
To check if you got the update, Open Settings and then click on About device. You will then find the option for Updater on the bottom, Click on check for updates. Make sure you have an active internet connection to check the update on your device.
