Xiaomi Mi Max finally receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update

It’s been more than a year since Chinese company Xiaomi came out with the Mi Max, an evolutionary device that started a trend in the smartphone industry, that of bezel-less handsets.

Unfortunately, the Mi Max was a Chinese affair, as the large phone was hardly available through official channels in other countries. On top of that, it took Xiaomi more than a year to provide those who purchased the Mi Max with an Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Well, it appears that Xiaomi has finally kicked off the roll-out of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Mi Max, which is based on …
