“Redmi K20 Pro MIUI 10 update fixes battery drain issues in factory firmware, optimises face unlock, and more”
Xiaomi’s Redmi brand unveiled the Redmi K20 Pro smartphones in China last month. The flagship is also confirmed to make its way to the Indian market very soon. It’s the brand’s first phone to feature a pop-up selfie slider. However, this very mechanism is reportedly causing issues. The slider elevates automatically whenever the user gets a video call from an application even when the phone is placed in the pocket, thus making it fragile and exposed to dust. Addressing the issue, Redmi has rolled out MIUI 10 v10.3.8.0.PFKCNXM update that is claimed to fix the sliding mechanism issue.
Furthermore, according to PiunikaWeb, the changelog also includes lock screen clock customisations and improvements to the status bar and notification shade. The update also optimises face unlock and brings the ability to set lunar calendar on the lock screen. The idle battery drain issue in the factory firmware has also been reportedly fixed. Apps now natively render with rounded corners. While it is possible that Redmi might have included a fix to the uncalibrated proximity sensor, but the changelog doesn’t specify. The update has already started rolling out in China but might take a week to reach everyone.
To recall, the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC with Adreno 640 GPU and sports a 6.39-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with notch-less design, thanks to the pop-up slider. It boots Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 skin on top with Game Turbo 2.0 mode. As for the optics, the Redmi K20 Pro flaunts a triple camera setup at the rear comprising a 48MP f/1.7 primary snapper, a 13MP f/2.4 secondary shooter, and an 8MP telephoto f/2.4 sensor. On the front, there is a 20MP f/2.0 camera for selfies and video chats. The handset also comes with Hi-Res Audio and DC Dimming features.
