Xiaomi has announced that it is officially discontinued support for the Mi 2/2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, and the Mi Note. This means that these models will not be receiving any more public beta or closed beta updates from Xiaomi after the MIUI 9.
“To ensure the best performance of MIUI, we have to make a tough decision of suspending the update of 6 devices after a long-time discussion and evaluation about the release time of devices, active users, hardware performance, etc.” Xiaomi wrote.
Here we are talking about a new test of Xiaomi fans. Even if this decision was made following a survey in the Xiaomi community, fans are cautious about stopping them from using their old smartphones. The past has taught us that such a decision from manufacturers can have unpleasant consequences and force buyers to make new acquisitions.
Technology is developing at an extremely rapid pace, and a product is overtaken in just a few years. Some even faster. What do we do with the old ones? Do we throw them? Do we change them with newer ones? In practice, some use them for a while and then sell them on various platforms at a discounted price. Minimize loss and with a small investment they have a new smartphone. However, in order to sell them they must be able to be used.
MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM (closed beta and public beta)

Now do you understand why I love Xiaomi? They also respect those who have an old Xiaomi device with overcome technology.
