The Mi 8 Pro and the Mi 8 Explorer Edition were the initial Xiaomi phones to launch with an in-display fingerprint digital camera. They will be joined by the Mi 9 and the Mi 9 Explorer Edition in a couple of days but it looks the function could make its way to budget Xiaomi smartphones this year.
The info comes from Xiaomi’s gadget manager, Wang Teng Thomas, who disclosed in a Weibo article yesterday that their goal for 2019 is to bring the “Fingerprint on Display” feature to extra mid-range models.
There is no info on which of Xiaomi’s upcoming mid-range phones will have it. The Redmi 7 Pro coming to launch soon has its fingerprint sensor on the rear. The products we can think of right currently include things like the Mi MAX 4, the Mi 9 SE, Mi 9 Lite (if there is one in development), and probably even the successor to the Mi 6X.
The post Furthermore revealed why the Mi MIX 3 which was launched back in November doesn’t have an in-display fingerprint digital camera even though the Honor Magic 2 which is also a slider cameraphone has it. The reason according to Mr. Thomas is because of to the contrasts in the design and structure of the slider in both smartphones. He said he will supply a proper explanation upcoming week.
The Mi 9 what launches on Wednesday will come with a new generation in-screen fingerprint camera what is 25% faster than the last generation. It moreover has a larger scanning area and has been optimized to work much better with dry fingers and under low-temperature.
