Xiaomi has released an update for its newly launched budget smartphone the Mi 4i.
The new update seems to fix the widely criticised overheating issue and brings some performance enhancements. Technology Personalized is reported to have tested the update on at least two Mi 4i devices and confirms that the update does add the aforementioned changes.
The overheating issue has affected a number of users, as confirmed by MIUI forum members. Additionally, consumers who purchased the handset from Indian online e-tailer Flipkart are experiencing the issue.
"Yes indeed it does heat up, hopefully it will be resolved in the coming updates.
"If you can't wait then the best idea would be to under clock the CPU, as overheating is a common issue among Snapdragon 615 series be it Gen 1 or Gen 2, they all are same," notes a user by the name ybr101.
But the new update that comes along with MIUI ROM v126.96.36.199.LXIMICD, squashes those bugs and improves the performance of the device. Following is the official changelog for the MIUI ROM v188.8.131.52.LXIMICD.
