Users simple touch the screen of the phone to perform fingerprint input. Xiaomi did not seem to want to miss. Recently rumors that the candidate flagship manufacturer from China, Mi 7 , will also be equipped with under-display fingerprint scanner. The indication is expressed directly by Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, when responding to a Weibo forum user who jokes that Mi 7 might have a fingerprint scanner on screen.
Lei Jun firmly replied that Mi 7 will indeed have the feature, as summarized from GizmoChina. Based on previous rumors, Xiaomi will release two new flagship, the Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus. Both specifications include Snapdragon 845 chip, dual-camera 16 megapixel camera, facial recognition, and 3,400 mAh battery with wireless charging.
The firmware leak from Mi 7 Plus (with Ursa code) indicates that the device will have an under-display fingerprint scanner. Perhaps, this feature will only be present at Mi 7 Plus and absent from Mi 7. Is that right? The answer may be known when the launch of Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus is predicted to be held in June.
