Xiaomi Mi 3 Now Receiving MIUI 6 Update in India
Xiaomi's 2013 flagship smartphone, the Mi 3 is now receiving MIUI 6 update based on Android 4.4 KitKat in India. Xiaomi India, at the Mi 4 launch event, had confirmed that the Mi 3 will receive the update starting Wednesday.

The Chinese company also confirmed that the MIUI 6 update will be rolled out to all the Xiaomi smartphones that have been sold in India. Apart from the Mi 3, the Redmi Note 4G will start receiving the update next week, while both the Redmi 1S and Redmi Note will get the update in early March.

The Xiaomi Mi 3 is getting the update over-the-air (OTA) with build number MIUI V6.3.3.0.KXDMIBL and about 550MB in size. With the latest MIUI 6 update, the Mi 3 will receive a slew of features including optimisations for contacts (contacts list loading speed in conversation mode); enhanced smoothness of mail details page; reduced power consumption for POP3 and IMAP accounts, and smoothness when switching pages.


Some of the other highlights of the update include support for choosing text fonts, colours, sizes and some other options when editing a mail, and now swiping right will mark unread messages as read in the Messages app. For emails, the update brings new features such as automatic save option when typing text in quick reply box in mail; stop downloading all attachments in one press, and when replying to all recipients of a mail with attachments, it will ask if you want to include attachments of the last mail when you try to add more recipients.

The MIUI 6 update for the Mi 3 also brings some fixes for attached images that did not show; synced mails that were deleted on PC; notifications for a mail showing repeatedly in Notification mode; mail content sometimes not showing after being opened from Notification shade, and a bug where after changing password of exchange accounts, syncing mails on handset did not prompt 'incorrect password.'

The company also made the Xiaomi Mi 3 available in its last chance sale earlier this week on Republic Day.

Xiaomi on Wednesday launched its 2014 flagship in India, the Mi 4, at Rs. 19,999 for the 16GB model.
