When we talk about the Xiaomi brand, the first thing that comes to our mind is the smartphone with more features at the lowest possible price. The company entered the Indian market five years ago, shortly after it became known as the No. 1 smartphone in India. It is well known that Xiaomi uses its own custom skin MIUI on its phones. The company's own gallery, app store, music, theme, weather updates, etc. applications are also quite popular. Earlier, the company also provided its own browser on the device, but the application has been banned in India due to data security issues. This time the problem related to the company's weather application has come to the fore. In fact, the Xiaomi Weather app cannot identify various locations in Arunachal Pradesh.
Recently, popular tech youtuber technical guruji alias Gaurab Chowdhury uploaded a video from where the issue came to the fore. Gaurab was informed about this by an email from a follower from Arunachal Pradesh. Gaurav later checked from his Redmi Note 9 Pro device that the areas of Arunachal Pradesh (such as Itanagar, Tawang, Pasighat, Tezur etc.) are not really listed. Even the location of the capital of Arunachal is not included in the Xiaomi Weather application. Sources claim that some Xiaomi users are suffering from this problem.
Meanwhile, speculation has started that the China-based company is not considering Arunachal Pradesh as part of India. Because China is reluctant to recognize Arunachal Pradesh as an integral part of India, they have always considered Arunachal Pradesh as part of southern Tibet.
So far, Xiaomi India has not commented on the incident. Presumably, the company may claim the issue as a bug or system fault, as they do not want to lose their place in the Indian smartphone market. However, after this incident, criticism about Shaomi has started on social media.
