Xiaomi Mi A1 users facing battery drain and fingerprint sensor issues after Oreo update

NEW DELHI: Earlier this month Xiaomi rolled out Android 8.0 Oreo update for its Android One smartphone - Mi A1. However, the company suspended the update soon after as some users reported issues with the device. Then after working for some weeks the company again rolled out the update last week.

Users who now installed the update are again reporting some new issues with the smartphone. Users who installed the Android 8.0 Oreo update revealed that they are facing battery drain issues and lag in using fingerprint sensor.

Issues have been reported on Reddit, XDA forum and Xiaomi's official support forum. Some are also complaining that the battery drain is so bad that they are compelled to charge the smartphone two times in a day. Along with this, they are also witnessing a short lag while unlocking the smartphone using the fingerprint sensor.


The company has now confirmed that they are looking into both the issues.


To recall, the company launched Xiaomi Mi A1 last year at Rs 14,999. The device then received a price cut of Rs 1,000 and is now available at Rs 13,999. It is the first Android One smartphone of the company.


The handset sports a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution. The device is protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 4GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU.


The smartphone offers 64GB internal storage which can be expanded further by adding a microSD card. On the camera front, the device comes with a dual rear camera setup. It features a 12MP wide angle and a 12MP telephoto lens for an improved bokeh effect in portrait shots. The telephoto lens enabled 2x optical zoom. This pairs with Mi A1's 10x digital zoom. Some of the camera features users will get include Beautify 3.0, Portrait Mode, HDR and more. At the front, the smartphone has a 5MP camera. The smartphone houses a 3080mAh battery.
