The Redmi 4 was released in May of 2017, while the 4A is even older, from two years ago. As usual, Xiaomi is great in supporting its previous smartphones with the latest versions of its UI overlay.

Xiaomi has started sending out the updates to MIUI 10 for the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A today. We're talking about the international models, as this is a stable Global ROM, and not a China-only affair.
