One of the phases in the technology industry was shipping flagships without minuscule crypto certificate which is known as Widevine so as to save the time required for Certification jobs. This resulted in the issue of these phones not able to stream online in HD or FHD. What matters here is internal whitelisting and crypto validation.
Not just the Poco F1 but the Honor View 20 users too were not able to watch Amazon Prime or Netflix in HD on their devices. These two make the perfect example for the above situation in the face of having essential certifications out of the box.
The same has been the case with the very proverbial Asus Zenfone 6 in India. This is now showing up constantly in the regional firmware and the OEM has been striving hard to overcome this issue. While that is still being solved, here we have another member in our Anti-HD club – Redmi K20 Pro. (Most likely the Indian Variant).
Albeit the Redmi K20 Pro comes with in-built Widevine L1 Certificate, it has been coming across some issues in case of compatibility with a specific provider – Amazon Prime. The Redmi K20 Pro users have been facing issues with the Amazon Prime HD streaming. Whereas Netflix is all cool with it.
Now even though there have been a number of reports like the one mentioned above on the Forum of Xiaomi, there is no word yet from the OEM. If you too are a Redmi K20 Pro user and are facing something similar, then do share your experience of inconvenience with us in the comment section below.
Stay tuned with us to keep updated on this story.
Happy Androiding 🙂
Basically a gamer, I tend to find Android so amusing that ended up creating a blog where I could share with you all that i am aware of and could be. Passion overtook me to an extent that I decided to be a full time technology blogger. Besides gaming, eating sleeping and Androiding is what keeps me going!
