Redmi flagship device removed from sub-screen fingerprint scanner
In May, it is predicted that Redmi's new products based on the Snapdragon 855 chipset will be presented to the general public. Fans of the brand's products and ordinary users are actively collecting information about the technical equipment of the gadget.
Two days ago, Redmi CEO Liu Weibing reported one of the news, which was not pleasant for the company's customers. He said that it took too much money to develop an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
From this information, many have concluded that the company will refuse to equip its flagship with such functionality in order to save and keep its cost within an attractive level for consumers.
Earlier, another Redmi representative said that the total cost of placing a sub-screen fingerprint scanner when assembling one smartphone is $ 22. This is several times more expensive than its capacitive counterpart.
Also, an additional condition for using the sensor under the screen is the use of OLED panels. This leads to an even greater increase in the cost of gadgets. That is why the new product of the company will be equipped with IPS-displays. Its specifications have not yet been announced, but the head of the company said that it will compete with Xiaomi Mi9 and Mi 9 Transparent Edition, which have already been announced.
