We've been seeing rumors about Xiaomi's next flagship smartphone, which would be a regular development, until a video uploaded to YouTube caused the next device – called My 8 – to have a fingerprint sensor on the screen.
The Mi 8 is supposed to be the sequel to Mi 6 last year – it's not entirely clear why, but the rumor is that 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 have larger screens. But it is not surprising that they experience between product cycles before deciding on a new flagship.
Other features planned for the flagship of the Chinese manufacturer of Android include a 3D facial recognition unlocking feature, the Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and a 4000 mAh battery with charging support Wireless
The video is short, so we really can not see what happens inside the interface, except the login with fingerprint on the screen. Also seen in the video is what appears to be version nine of MIUI, the family of custom masks created by Xiaomi for their Android phones.
The screen fingerprint technology is still very new and begins to proliferate, and some of the first examples are the Vivo X20 and the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS.
