Xiaomi Redmi Note 7

The Redmi Note 7 has become quite a successful product for Xiaomi in India. The phone maker is going strong with consistent software updates for this phone, and a new one is here to fix issues and add new features. A highlight of this update is the arrival of March 2019’s Android security patch. There are said to be new AI Camera modes, along with floating windows for incoming calls when games are running. The latest MIUI 10 update bears the version number v10.3.5.0.PFGMIXM and is said to weigh in at 588MB. Let’s take a look at all the new features and bug fixes in details.

MIUI v10.3.5.0.PFGMIXM Changelog: What’s new?

One of the most notable changes with this new software update is the addition of floating windows whenever you get an incoming call while gaming. Meanwhile, there was an issue where floating notifications for calls and status bar shortcuts appeared at the same time which has now been fixed. The time taken to end calls was also too long and has now been addressed.

A new feature allows users to have the phone unlocked with Face Unlock and remain on the lock screen. Three is also the option to restrict the notification shade from opening when the user is on the lock screen. This can be helpful for security purposes where others will not be able to see notifications or interact with certain settings. Moving on, we have optimizations made to make Face unlock more efficient. One of the ways this was done is likely the fix where face data was recorded too fast. There are also fixes made to face unlock where it’s prompt did not disappear on time.

A few other UI element fixes include Low battery warning that did not appear when the phone was in landscape mode. There is also a fix for call rime bubble which previously used to overlap with notification icon. One fix has been added specifically for WhatsApp where the messaging app’s icon displayed incorrect notification badges. Furthermore, Mi Cloud’s start page is said to have received a visual redesign.

As mentioned earlier, the AI camera gets new modes. However, it hasn’t been specified what these new modes are. The camera app also gets other fixes, where one bug caused the app to force close each time the app was closed and reopened in Video mode. Trying to open the app after canceling making a photo in Messaging also used to crash the app, and it seems this issue has been addressed.
