EScan raises red flag against Xiaomi's MIUI OS, alerts smartphone users

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 features similar display as that of Redmi Note 3, at 5.5-inch screen size with Full HD resolution. The outcome of which is that the smartphone has captured a market share of 7.2 percent alone, according to Counterpoint Research.

With the growing number of mobile users, there is a spurt in demand for latest mobile handsets.

"From a security point of view, the process of un-install implemented in MIUI poses a significant security threat since the authentication process implemented by the app is bypassed", they added. And all of the eager fellas can now download MIUI 8.5.4.0 for Redmi Note 4/4x (Global stable ROM) from below.

It is believed that the 40,000 kg of grains that were used to create the Mosaic will be given back to the society, Xiaomi will donate this to Robin Hood Army, an NGO that will feed 1 million people across India and Pakistan during Independence day.

Xiaomi did not split a single word on when they're going to launch the next generation Redmi Note smartphones.

Responding to the eScan report, Xiaomi said, "We strongly disagree with the allegations made by Escan in their report". It won't be possible to perform fastboot flashing on locked devices. Plus, work and personal profiles can't be told apart. If a device is owned by your company or organization and configured with a device owner, the device owner can also perform a factory reset. About a month ago we saw a leaked image that revealed the phone's retail box.

In a statement to Gadgets 360, Xiaomi was quick to clarify that such a situation will take place only if a perpetrator gains physical access to an unlocked smartphone. It is backed by a 4100mAh battery and also comes with an IR blaster and the Mi remote control app. On the camera front, the Note 4 has a 13MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and 5MP front camera. Xiaomi has reportedly sold over five million smartphones in merely seven months this year.
