Xiaomi refuses smartphones without 5G more expensive than $ 285

Back in November last year, the head of Xiaomi Lei Jun promised that in 2020 all the manufacturer’s smartphones with a price tag above 2,000 yuan ($ 285) will receive 5G support. It looks like Xiaomi has now begun to deliver on its promise.

The IThome publication, citing a statement by the CEO of Xiaomi Group China and the head of Redmi Lu Weibing, writes that Xiaomi intends to remove from sales all smartphones without 5G more than 2000 yuan ($ 285).

First of all, this is the first 108-megapixel CC9 Pro cameraphone, which is sold on the international market under the name Mi Note 10. At the time of the announcement, it cost from $ 400. Lou Weibing promised to immediately remove him from the range.

“5G has arrived, and no one can stop it,” said the head of Xiaomi.

This year, the company has planned the release of more than 10 smartphones with 5G support. What “expensive” models will be abandoned is still not known exactly, but we hope that the “cleaning” will take place only in China, because we do not need 5G yet.

Xiaomi showed the work of a sub-screen fingerprint scanner on a smartphone with an LCD display

The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has successfully tested the sub-screen fingerprint scanner on a device with an LCD display.

This was told by the head of the sub-brand Redmi Lu Weibing. He also posted a video demonstrating the technology on his Weibo page. The company’s engineers managed to do this by installing a special infrared film. It allows the screen to conduct light better and reflect the texture of the finger.

When the first smartphones with such a scanner appear, Weybing did not inform, but most likely, they are expected to wait on the market this year. The price tag of these devices will be less than 300 US dollars.

Redmi Note 9 appeared on a concept render with a hole in the screen, like the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro

Popular designer Ben Geskin continues to share renders of new smartphones. This time, he demonstrated his vision of the Redmi Note 9 budget employee.

Details about Redmi Note 9 are not many. The device should debut in India next week. He is credited with the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor of the 600th or 700th series, as well as the MIUI 11 shell with the Android 10 operating system. The novelty should cost less than $ 200.

Xiaomi will release two versions of the flagship Redmi K30 Pro

After the announcement of the Mi 10 smartphone, Xiaomi is now preparing for the presentation of the flagship under the Redmi brand. Now the network has new information about the device.

According to Indian insider Sudhanshu Ambhore, the Redmi K30 Pro will be released in two versions. How they will differ, he did not report. We can only assume that we are talking about smartphones with support for 4G and 5G. This is not difficult to implement, because the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, which is attributed to the flagship, ships without a built-in 5G modem.

The Redmi K30 Pro is also credited with a battery with a capacity of about 4700 mAh and a main camera with four modules. The main sensor should be the same as the usual Redmi K30 – Sony IMX686 with a resolution of 64 megapixels.

The Redmi K30 Pro debuts in the spring with a price tag of less than $ 550.

Despite the price, the first batch of Xiaomi Mi 10 was taken apart in just 1 minute

Yesterday, the new flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 went on sale in China, and the company has already shared the first results.

The first batch of smartphones sold out in just 1 minute! The manufacturer does not say how many devices were in the first batch, but notes that total sales exceeded 200 million yuan ($ 28.65 million).

The next batch of Xiaomi Mi 10 will go on sale on February 18, already with the older version of Mi 10 Pro.

The head of Xiaomi Lei Jun assures that the production of smartphones began a month before the release, so the company tried to accumulate the necessary reserves. True, due to coronavirus and the suspension of plants, supplies will be limited in the next week or two.

And the vice president of the company and the head of Redmi, Lou Weibing, once again explained why the Xiaomi Mi 10 is much more expensive than the previous flagships. Recall that the cost of Mi 10 starts at $ 573, Mi 10 Pro – from $ 716.

First of all, the price was affected by the Snapdragon 865 processor, which costs twice as much as the Snapdragon 855. Also add to the price a screen-waterfall with a frequency of 90 Hz and a hole for the front camera, a 108-megapixel camera, LPDDR5 RAM, an increased battery and a new cooling system.

Update to MIUI 11 based on Android 10 “broke” Xiaomi Mi 9T smartphones

Recently, Xiaomi Mi 9T smartphones received an update from MIUI 11 based on Android 10. However, with the new firmware, users started to have problems.

After installing the MIUI update, which includes Android security fixes from January, smartphones started to run a little on battery power.

On forums, users write that if before a single charge was enough for 9-10 hours of work, now it is 6-7 hours at best. Moreover, the smartphone’s settings indicate that Android is the most “gluttonous” – it consumes more than 30% of the battery charge.

Обновление до MIUI 11 с Android 10 «сломало» смартфоны Xiaomi Mi 9T

For example, one of the users in 24 minutes watching videos on YouTube, the charge decreased from 100% to 87%.

Many people advise clearing the cache, disabling autorun, and restarting the smartphone periodically. There is a cardinal method – reset to factory settings. However, we immediately warn that not all of these manipulations work for everyone.

Most likely, in the near future, Xiaomi will release a new update for Mi 9T, which will fix the error.

Xiaomi users filed a petition, demanding to upgrade Mi A3 to Android 10

In July 2019, Xiaomi introduced a new smartphone as part of the Android One program – Mi A3. It has a good “filling” and low cost, and it cannot boast of a new version of Android.

Xiaomi Mi A3 runs on the “original” Android, so the upgrade to Android 10 should have been among the first. Other companies have long updated smartphones with both “original” Android and branded shells, but there is still no update for Mi A3.

They promised to release the update back in October. After several months of waiting, users made a petition demanding that the Xiaomi Mi A3 be updated to Android 10. At the time of writing this news, it has collected more than 3 thousand signatures.

At the same time, the Indian representative of Xiaomi said on Twitter that the update will be released soon.

In addition, the other day on gitHub appeared source codes for Android 10 firmware for Mi A3 and Mi A2, which means that the update will be released soon.

The new vice president of Xiaomi was the head of Lenovo Mobile

Lenovo lost its talent, and Xiaomi acquired a new vice president of the mobile division.

Lenovo vice president and head of Lenovo Mobile China, Chang Cheng, left the company where he worked for 19 years. Cheng resigned on December 18, when Lenovo founder Liu Chuangzhi resigned.

Cheng moved to Xiaomi, where he also took the chair of the vice president. Xiaomi Chairman and CEO Lei Zun confirmed replenishment, welcoming the new vice president of Xiaomi Group. Cheng will now be responsible for creating new products related to the company’s smartphones.

Chang Cheng joined Lenovo in 2000 as director of research and development for the computer division. In 2011, he was appointed vice president of Lenovo Group and general manager of the mobile division, where he was responsible for the software part. In 2015, Cheng traveled to the chair of the executive director of ZUK, a subsidiary of Lenovo.

According to Gizmochina, under Cheng, Lenovo fought for the smartphone market, but was never able to capture a significant share. At the same time, the reason for leaving the company was health problems, as well as the desire to spend more time with family.
