Redmi Note 9: the series has problems with dust infiltration in the cameras

UPDATE AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE - 24/08/2020

The series Redmi Note 9, which includes among its ranks several variants (Yes, Pro e Pro Max), finds himself the protagonist of a very serious problem. This is not a software bug related to the MIUI, although lately the complaints in this regard are many. It is a hardware problem that unfortunately resulted from one lack of controls during construction of devices. If we want we can say that it is a qualitative problem: the rear cameras of the whole series suffer from infiltration of dust. Here are all the reports.

Numerous reports make it known that the Redmi Note 9 series has problems with dust infiltration in the rear photographic compartment

Although previously the number of units of Redmi Note 9 (the whole series therefore also the S and the Pro) affected by this problem was limited, it seems that with time the reports have increased. In particular, in the last period Twitter is invaded by users who make it known that the magnet present behind the body, on the camera, can't hold the dust.

One of the units affected by this problem

Following numerous reports, one of the most present company executives on Twitter, Alvin Tse, responded by stating that at the moment only very few units have been confirmed. It has been requested, according to him, that i controls in the construction of this series of Redmi smartphones are strengthened further. In any case i assistance centers will be available to help victimized users.

The problem was also exposed on the I Global Community, in which the moderators replied that it would be advisable to move to receive one replacement. Based on what has been said in the community of xiaomists, the concern is related to a "quality control problem". In particular there seems to be a mini empty space between the body and the camera module which should however be filled with the silver magnet. An official statement is yet to arrive but if it has been (unofficially) established that it is a hardware problem, then it is very likely that a replacement can be requested.

There is no time for dust to appear, the fault is in the frame and design of the phone is not a simple gasket, your problem can be days, weeks or so.
