Picture of the Xiaomi Mi 7 shows fingerprint sensor on the screen

Xiaomi To Ditch Fingerprint Sensor in Mi 7 And Use Face Unlock: Report Xiaomi Mi 7 to feature facial unlock similar to Apple iPhone X

The Mi 7, unlike the iPhone X, is said to also feature a regular fingerprint sensor, as the company believes the physical sensor provides a level of convenience facial recognition can not match.

For now, it's a future that folks who have Xiaomi's Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Redmi 5, and Redmi 5 Plus can preview on their devices.

Incidentally, the in-display fingerprint sensor were supported by renders published by GizChina.

The phone could pack 6GB of RAM and a 3,200mAh battery, and is expected to be launched in Q1 2018. The renders revealed both the front and back of the device showing features like dual cameras and an 18:9 display with minimal bezels. Thanks to bezel-less display, the smartphone will also have onscreen navigation keys like the one found in the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2.

Xiaomi is also rolling out similar gestures in beta for its range of full screen smartphones, namely the Xiaomi Mi Mix, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Xiaomi Redmi 5, and Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus handsets.

Romelu Lukaku carried off with apparent head injury
First of all, people don't have to be grateful to Romelu, I have to be, not you, not the supporters, not the pundits. Jose Mourinho admitted he considered resting Lukaku for the clash but the striker had no interest in being dropped.

As for the rest of the specs, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the latest and most powerful processor from the company. The OLED display will offer better contrast ratio with accurate colour reproduction and great viewing angles. If the rumours are to be believed, this will be the first Xiaomi smartphone to support wireless charging and IP certification against water and dust resistance. The Mi 7 may just be set to turn that trend on its head, though, with rumors claiming it will feature its own facial recognition technology.

The Xiaomi Mi 7 is set to be made official around April.

Xiaomi isn't the only company to follow Apple's footsteps; Companies like Huawei and Vivo have already started dipping their hands in the facial recognition loop.

So, what do you think about the Xiaomi Mi 7?
