New Xiaomi update is released to fix Mi4i heating issues

Xiaomi’s new product Mi4i also cannot avoid receiving reports from Xiaomi Mi4i users on heating issues. For example, the device gets warmer under strenuous conditions (e.g. running 3D gaming and benchmarking apps). On the other hand, some people think that Snapdragon 615 is the cause because other phones like Yu Yureka, HTC Desire 820, and OPPO R5, powered by Snapdragon 615, overheat to the same extent.

Though Xiaomi used to release an update known as to fix the problem before, it led to some other power button issue. As a result, Xiaomi has to find another way. After analyzing the situations, Xiaomi took some action. Specifically, they has been rolling out a newer OTA (Over The Air) system update of MIUI v6.5.50 for the Mi4i.

“Today we began an over-the-air system update of MIUI v6.5.5.0 (available now with a size of 40MB) for Mi 4i users. This is our first major update for the Mi4i since its launch last month, incorporating feedback from many early Mi4i users with a number of bug fixes and optimizations,” Hugo Barra, Xiaomi’s Vice President of International Operations, posted on May 26 about their Xiaomi update.

With this update, Xiaomi Mi4i’s thermal control algorithms are optimized to regulate the temperature in a better way. In addition, it will adjust frequency, voltage and the number of cores in use, depending on the processor’s temperature, “the new thermal controls adjust frequency, voltage and the number of cores in use depending on the chipset temperature. In all of our internal testing and pre-OTA release in the MIUI Forum and beta testers, we’ve observed that these changes reduce the device overall temperature without impacting performance.” Besides, additional bug fixes and optimizations are also updated at the same time.

It seems like Xiaomi is trying their best to bring good experience to Mi’s product users in general, and Mi4i users in particular. With the new Xiaomi update of MIUI v6.5.5.0, which can be downloaded from the Updater app on Mi4i, hopefully there would be no more heating issues on Xiaomi Mi4i.
