Since January there is no answer to this question. I think it's because the sensitivity of this app. It's actually potentially very harmful and a dangerous app. The below is not my work but from a blog post here: https://www.thijsbroenink.com/2016/09/xiaomis-analytics-app-reverse-engineered/

What does app does:

It sends a request to 'sdkconfig.ad.xiaomi.com' and sends with it the MAC-address, IMEI-number and the Device Model. It then checks for updates of an App called 'Analytics.apk.' This is potentially harmful since there is no verification of this app. With DNS tempering this 'Analytics.apk' file could be anything.

Next to that: all data is send as plain text (http) and is not encrypted. Every router could check the information being send: IMEI, MAC-address and the model of the device. That would lead to more problems. Again: all potentially.

This is not a Xiaomi-bash in any way, just an educative post to an issue nobody seems to be aware off. But like all bugs and vulnerable services it needs fixing becase the bad guys will know about this too. 100% security does not exist but should still be tried to get accomplished.

It has come to my understanding that the researcher reached out to Xiaomi for answers. We'll have to wait a bit longer :)

Xiaomi can not answer it,  because they seal or spy personal information. That's Why One time India  ...

The apps is no longer available in the current releases. Update to Miui 6.15.9 or newer to have it removed.

It has been tested and verified on my Xiaomi Mi2 (with xiaomi.eu release).

Maybe the same functionalities have been moved somewhere else, so people can't prevent the same things anymore just removing analytics.
