4-year old Xiaomi Redmi 1s gets MIUI 9, but with a catch

The MIUI 9 global rollout continues. We reported that 40 devices will get the new user interface, including some very old phones. And now one of those, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, is updating to a stable MIUI 9.2.2.0. There is a catch though – the OS stays Android 4.4.4 KitKat and the security update is from October 2016.
