If rumors are to be believed, you can expect the integration of an in-display fingerprint sensor on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7. Previously, Vivo had launched a similar smartphone at the recently concluded MWC 2018 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

There are reports that Xiaomi MI 7 will not feature any bezels or notch on the top side. The sensors will be allocated inside the invisible positions. The reason for the delay in the launch of MI 7 is mainly attributed to the addition of these features.

Xiaomi has always been making innovations when it comes to the features especially when it comes to the popular Mi series. The company recently launched Redmi Note 5 in India with bezel-less Full Display. Going forward, we can expect the launch of new smartphones with a notch on the top coupled with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor has been confirmed by the Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun as a comment inside the MIUI Source code branch. When a user posted a comment by stating that the handset will have an in-display fingerprint sensor, Jun replied back indirectly. based on the nature of the conversation, we infer the integration of an in-display fingerprint sensor.
