Xiaomi President and Co-founder Bin Lin demonstrated on Weibo the improved in-display fingerprint sensor. Bin Lin can be observed unlocking the device quickly, and demonstrates the large unlocking fingerprint recognition area.
Xiaomi has been working hard on improving and upgrading in-display fingerprint technology. The 2018 flagship Mi 8 Explorer Edition was Xiaomi’s first phone to use this technology. Improvements are visible in the demonstration and state that “one-click” reliability should be expected. The much larger fingerprint recognition area comes as a much needed upgrade. Last years Mi 8 with this technology received mixed views on its effectiveness.
This technology looks to rival the already favoured, and much more reliable sensors seen traditionally on the rear of phones.
