Redmi recently introduced its first game Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. In addition to state-of-the-art hardware and software designed specifically for gamers, this smartphone also has a new temperature control function.
Temperature control system
Kacper Skrzypek, a well-known developer from the Xiaomi.EU and XDA Developers communities, published information on his Twitter account that Xiaomi had started implementing a temperature control system, which it had incorporated directly into the MIUI superstructure. This system is not only able to monitor the temperature of the device, but also to limit the charging system.
You can find it in MIUI under the name "Charging temperature regulation" and its purpose is to lead the user to better battery management, longer battery life and especially to prevent problems with its overheating, which could lead to premature wear and, in the worst case, destruction.

As can be seen from the internal MIUI code, this functionality is able to reduce the load on the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition smartphone at high device temperatures, all in order to prevent the smartphone from overheating during gaming.
So far only for Redmi K40 Gaming Edition
Currently, this feature is only available for the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone, which should also be sold on the global market under the name POCO F3 GT. Therefore, for now, we will have to wait to see if this feature eventually reaches other devices.
It is good that Xiaomi and Redmi are trying to keep the battery in the best possible shape for as long as possible. The battery loses its capacity with each charge cycle. For gaming smartphones, where the CPU and the battery heat up the most when playing games, such a solution comes in handy.
In particular, charging while playing games is a sensitive issue in which the battery itself heats up a lot, which players feel as warm on the back of the smartphone, it can be uncomfortable for them and, in the worst case, it reduces the concentration of power in the game.
