Amazfit is a Xiaomi-owned brand promised to deliver quality-rich wrist wearables to the fan base. Today, we have a critical issue under discussion regarding the Amazfit GTR 47mm Global Edition. It is to describe that this smartwatch doesn’t support Unicode notifications in recent days but unfortunately, lacking it forever.
With millions of users for the same device, Amazfit places itself among the most-selling brands during recent times. In case of the Amazfit GTR 47mm Global Edition, the company follows the AMOLED touch display alongside a powerful battery for around 21 days of endurance.
Moreover, users have access to multiple watch faces as I have shown you in earlier reviews. Besides this amazing spec-sheet, a new issue has erupted recently, which seems severe for most of the owners. The Amazfit GTR 47mm lacks the Unicode Notification sport to present the characters from different languages.
Today, here I have come to guide you with regard to this severe phenomenon concerned. The Amazfit GTR 47mm Global Edition is an absolute partner of tech-savvies, which ensures reliable and productive performance in all fashions. But what if you suddenly come across this disappointing fact, which can disgrace your personality and your brand bounds.
Why You Need Notifications in Unicode?
Most probably, most of the users may be unknown of this unique feature in their smartwatch. Unicode is a font type, which is required to present the notifications in this font correctly. There are many alphabets, which needs this kind of font to make the sentences readable.
Furthermore, Unicode is a character encoding standard, applicable universally. It elaborates on the basis for storage, processing and interchange of text information in any language.
It is a single code page, which is designed to represent every character in every language in the world. Some of the alphabets fall in this category are Greek and Russian etc.
Now, what happened suddenly?
A few days ago, some of the Amazfit GTR 47mm Global Edition owners got an update notification with a new font. It is the exact font, which is capable of displaying the information in Greek. Unfortunately, many of us didn’t get this special Unicode font features despite getting the update notification like others.
Why there was this difference is the question raised in everyone’s mind. The answer is as simple as the two versions have different fonts.
According to the image posted online, we can see the two font versions for the same device, the Amazfit GTR 47mm Global Edition. It shows the Font 9 and Font 11. The Font 11 presents notifications in Greek to ensure that it has Unicode font to work altogether.
