More Mi 5S leaks
- The CEO of Xiaomi has uploaded a few samples of the pictures snapped by the Mi 5S. Click here to have a look at them.
- The unique selling proposition (USP) or unique selling point of this phone is not only its top notch specifications but also, the new fingerprint technology that it incorporates, at least that is what the reports say.
Earlier it was expected that the new fingerprint scanner would arrive on the iPhone 7 but the rumors soon faded as it would require the iPhone 7s to have a Qualcomm chip too.
The fascinating thing about this scanner is the manifold increase in the level of security that it offers. The makers claim it to be much more faster and a lot more secure than the other fingerprint scanners on a phone. The phone uses the Qualcomm Sense ID. The sensor can read a finger successfully even if it has grease, dust or a lotion on.
This is due to the fact that it uses 3D image of the print rather than the flat one used by other devices. The added security comes from the in-depth mapping of almost everything in a print. Check out this video for more.
The new leaks point out towards the possibility that Xiaomi just might be the first manufacturer to feature this revolutionary technology. This means other manufacturers will soon follow too. Let us see what happens tomorrow and what kind of response does it get from the people!
