Xiaomis next flagship phone might have an in-display fingerprint sensor

Xiaomi logoWeve been seeing rumblings of Xiaomis next flagship smartphone, which would be a regular development, until a video uploaded to YouTube teased that the upcoming device dubbed the Mi 8 will have an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The Mi 8 is supposed to be the sequel to last years Mi 6 its not totally clear why, but the rumor is Xiaomi will skip the Mi 7. Xiaomi has had two other high-end phones since then, the Mi Mix 2 and Mi Mix 2S, which both feature larger displays. But it comes as no surprise that theyd experiment between product cycles before settling on a new flagship.

Other features planned for the Chinese Android manufacturers flagship include a 3D facial recognition unlocking feature, the Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery with support for wireless charging.

The video is brief, so we really cant see whats going on within the interface, except for the in-display fingerprint login. Also seen in the video is what appears to be version nine of the MIUI, the family of custom skins by Xiaomi made for their Android phones.

In-display fingerprint technology is still very new and starting to proliferate, with some of the first examples being the Vivo X20 and the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS.
