The Xiaomi Mi 4c was released in September 2015 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and it was stuck with it until now. Apparently, the device will get Android 7.1.1 Nougat soon, as it was spotted on the famous Geekbench benchmarking website running on it.

There are no details about when the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update will roll out for the Xiaomi Mi 4c, as the company hasn’t made an official statement, but if the testing will go smoothly and there won’t be any significant problems, the update will come sooner. In December, it was confirmed that Xiaomi Mi4C, Mi4S, Mi Note and Mi Max will get the Android 7.0 Nougat update in a first phase, then Xiomi Mi Note 2, Xiomi Mi 5s Plus and Xiomi Mi Max will follow.

The Mi 5 was the first Xiaomi device that received Android 7.1.1 via CyanogenMod 14 Custom ROM and it was hinted that the next model that will get the Nougat update will be the Mi Note 2. In October has leaked a screenshot of MIUI 9 with the version number 6.9.23, based on Android 7.0 Nougat, which was said to arrive in December or January for Redmi Note 3 / 4, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi 3 / 3S / 3A and the Redmi Pro.

If you don’t own the Xiaomi Mi 4c, but you’re planning to buy it, here is the full list of specs: a 5-inch IPS LCD Full HD screen, a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 chipset powered by a hexa-core (4×1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 2×1.8 GHz Cortex-A57) processor, an Adreno 418 GPU and unexpandable internal storage available in two variants of 16GB (2GB of RAM) and 32GB (3GB of RAM). The device is kept alive by a non-removable battery of 3080mAh, and it takes pictures with a 13MP primary camera with phase detection autofocus, and dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and high quality selfies with the 5MP front camera.
