The Android 6 Marshmallow has been rolled out to a host of high-end smartphones across the world. And now, reports suggest that a custom-ROM will be available in the near future for the older Xiaomi Mi 3.

The Android Soul has published images (via Weibo China) of the Xiaomi Mi 3 supporting Android M, hence users of the device can update it by installing the TWRP recovery suite. The report adds that other Xiaomi handsets like the Xiaomi Mi 5 (unreleased), Mi 4i, Mi 4, Note Pro and Redmi Note 4G would also get the custom-ROM in due course of time.

So far, neither Google nor Xiaomi have spoken about the availability of the latest Android update.

Further, the China-based company is said to be working on Mi Note 2 and the Mi 5, which could be released by the end of the year. Chinese technology tipster Leaksfly (on Weibo) has claimed that Xiaomi would launch the Mi Note 2 on 5 November.

At presently, Xiaomi loyalists can pre-order the mid-range Mi 4C outside of China via a third-party e-tailer GearBest.
