The coronavirus outbreak, in addition to affecting a high number of cases and victims, also brings economic losses to several companies, especially in the technology sector, which remains dependent on labor from China. The outbreak recently caused Samsung and Motorola to suspend cell phone manufacturing in China. It has also led to cancellation of MWC 2020, which is the world’s leading mobile technology fair.
However, the inconveniences are not just limited to these. As the epidemic also caused Xiaomi to restrict and reschedule the software update roll out for its devices. Now, the company has started rolling out new beta updates for the Mi 10 and Redmi K30 in China. The latest beta updates for both the devices bring along some new features and bug fixes.
As per the changelog, the new software includes a fix for the battery style problem. This issue has been resolved on the super energy saving status bar. The update also adds setting for default dialing function for each contact. It further adds a clock management function, optimizing the weather setting to add the city flow, and more.
