The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite was unveiled back in May 2020 and it offers pretty decent value for money. It is powered by the Snapdragon 730G chip, paired with 6-8GB of RAM and a rather beefy 5260mAh battery.

The device launched with Android 10 out of the box with the company’s own MIUI 11 on top of it. It has since bagged the much-anticipated MIUI 12 update.

However, this solid device hasn’t been without a few issues. One of the main problems that have been afflicting users of this device has to do with the proximity sensor.

For many months now, users have been reporting a proximity sensor-related issue that causes the Mi Note 10 Lite’s display not to turn off when making calls. This results in accidental screen presses when on a call.

We have highlighted the issue and you can read more about that here. A forum moderator was then quoted saying that this issue was set to get fixed in the device’s MIUI 12 build.

Well, the Mi Note 10 Lite bagged the MIUI 12 update. However, users are still experiencing the same issue on their units, even with the new MIUI build.


Today, thanks to a member of Xiaomi’s Feedback team on the Mi Community Forum, we know that this proximity sensor issue on Mi Note 10 Lite is being looked into. The Xiaomi official had this to say on this matter:

Hello, Sorry for the inconvenience. This issue is already reported with this version to developers and wait for the upcoming fix update. Thanks for understanding.

With that, the wait for a fix continues. It remains unclear whether this is a software issue or a hardware-level problem but from the Feedback Team member, maybe it is a software issue after all.

This proximity sensor issue for the Mi Note 10 Lite has dragged on for a while and it is about time it got a permanent fix.
