The recently launched Mi Mix 4 will not carry one of the features that Xiaomi promised when it launched.
The smartphone had to come up with an anti-loss mode to protect it from being lost or stolen. Xiaomi has now announced that this will not be the case.
The review was shared by a Chinese expert on a recent post on Weibo. As seen by Gizmo China, the post reads that the app to combat the loss of contact cards without cards in Mi Mix 4 has been canceled.
The company cites official instructions as a reason for the technical ban.
The anti-loss mode in the Mi Mix 4 was based on a virtual SIM card. With a built-in SIM, users can access their devices, even if they don’t have a SIM card.
In its update, Xiaomi says support technology for this feature has not yet been approved for use in mobile products.
It therefore had to be removed from Mi Mix 4 due to non-compliance with Chinese laws. In this post, the company apologized to its users for abandoning the anti-loss mode.
The anti-loss feature has been introduced with Mi Mix 4. Although it is not the only new technology the smartphone comes with.
Others include a new Qualcomm flagship processor – the Snapdragon 888+, an unobtrusive selfie camera, and a ceramic unibody design.
Xiaomi also claims that the smartphone comes with a “unique” heat distribution structure that has a large space inside the device through the use of a graphene heat distributor.
The Mi Mix 4’s is also the first smartphone from Xiaomi to make sport a new UWB technology compatible with smart home products to enable “Point to connect” features.
Other outstanding features include up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM up to 512GB UFS 3.1 support.
It features a 6.67-inch FHD + AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, HDR10 + support and a 20-megapixel sensor at the bottom of the screen. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
For the photo, the Mi Mix 4 features a triple rear camera setting that includes a 108-megapixel sensor, a free form ultra-wide angle sensor and a 50X sensor periscope. The device is supported by a 4500 mAh battery.
