Xiaomi recently unveiled the Mi Mix 4, and the device was well-received at a pre-sale. Now Says a report The Chinese government has asked the company to remove anti-theft capabilities from its flagship, and Xiaomi has done so.
The Mi Mix 4 is a powerful flagship and Xiaomi’s first phone with a selfie camera under the screen. In addition to features such as a 6.67-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a Snapdragon 888 Plus chip, it also has a special feature that was an anti-theft system.
At the launch of the smartphone, Xiaomi mentioned the anti-theft feature, which allowed users to find a lost phone even by removing the SIM card. In addition, the device would not work with another SIM card without user approval.
It is now clear that such a feature no longer exists in Mix 4. Regulators have apparently not given the green light to this feature, and it also does not follow the relevant rules.
The smartphone is only sold in China and Xiaomi has no plans to launch it globally at the moment. Perhaps if this device enters markets outside China, we will see the use of such a feature in it.
This flagship is sold in different versions in China. The base version with $ 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage is priced at $ 771. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 retails for $ 817 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The top version, with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, is priced at $ 972.
Although the price of different versions of Mix 4 is acceptable according to its specifications, but if it is offered in the global market, we will face higher prices. We have seen this happen in the past for the May 11 phone in the Chinese market and the global market, although the release of the Mix 4 will probably be more limited than the May 11.
