Xiaomi has announced that it is discontinued support for some older devices

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.

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)
After November 17th, 2017, update for the following 6 devices, namely, Mi 2/2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, and Mi Note will be suspended, both closed beta and public beta. MIUI Global Beta ROM 7.11.16 is the last beta update for the above devices.

MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM
MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM for the above 6 devices and Redmi 1S will be released gradually from December, 2017 to January, 2018. For users of the above devices who have flashed to MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM, we will provide methods to flash to MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM, please stay tuned to the forum.

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