In a significant development, Xiaomi Mi 7 is rumored to ship with Face Unlock technology instead of the conventional fingerprint sensor. After the introduction of the Face Unlock capability in the recently released iPhone X, several manufacturers have upped the ante by introducing this feature in their own devices. It is to be noted that several Chinese companies have also entered the fray. Moreover, OnePlus also integrated the face recognition capability in the recently released OnePlus 5T smartphone.
According to reports, Xiaomi is gearing up to integrate the advanced 3D face sensing capability. However, there are unconfirmed reports that the company will also integrate on-screen fingerprint sensor. We expect that the Lei Jun-owned company will ship Mi 7 with both fingerprint and face recognition because users prefer devices with a wide range of choices.
A report published on MyDrivers reveals the fact that Xiaomi is not keen to implement the in-display fingerprint sensor since the company is maintaining a staunch silence. Hence, industry analysts believe that the company will ditch the fingerprint sensor completely.
The upcoming smartphones manufactured by Vivo and Huawei will also ship with Face unlock feature in a bid to push sales. Interestingly, GizChina states that the Xioami Mi 7 will be infused with an on-screen fingerprint scanner with unlock capability.
On the specifications front, the rumored Xiaomi Mi 7 will be equipped with a 6-inch full display 18:9 OLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB RAM, 128GB expandable storage pre-loaded with Android Oreo. If Xiaomi ships Mi 7 with a 6-inch display, then the device will be an upgrade to the currently available Mi 6, which ships with a small 5.15-inch display.
Unlike iPhone X, all new smartphones released with face unlock feature also bundled with the fingerprint sensor. It remains to be seen as to what Xiaomi will be going to do with the upcoming Mi 7. We have to wait and watch for few more days until something concrete appears on the rumor mills.
