Redmi CEO Lu Weibing has made it clear to fans of the brand that one of his main wishes will not come true. Indeed, it is now clear that future mid-range of this Xiaomi sub-brand will not come with on-screen fingerprint reader.
These statements follow a Weibo survey about what fans of the brand would like to see improved on future Redmi smartphones. The main request was even a biometric sensor on the screen, but this will not happen.
The reason behind this decision is the hardware used in the construction of these smartphones. Using LCD panels, Weibing says it is impossible for them to include this type of technology in their equipment.
Redmi's future mid-range won't have on-screen fingerprint reader
For everything to work perfectly, AMOLED technology displays would have to be adopted. However, such panels are more expensive than LCDs and would therefore result in increased production costs and a consequent selling price.
In addition, Redmi's CEO shatters the hope of a transition from this component from the back to the side of the smartphone. This is because such a change would have implications for the thickness of the equipment, something the company does not seem to be very comfortable with.
Therefore, the future of the Redmi will continue to be a fingerprint reader on the back of their devices. Not everyone loves this location, but if you want a Redmi you will have to settle for this approach.
However, we are already talking about a Redmi smartphone with a Snapdragon 855 processor. This will certainly be a little more expensive than the models already on the market and perhaps will not bring a biometric reader built into your screen.
