It was Kevin Wang, IHS Technology’s director in charge of China research that first leaked the information on Weibo that the Mi 5S would be the world’s first smartphone to feature the under glass ultrasonic finger print recognition patented by Qualcomm and first unveiled at CES 2016 earlier this year. We’ve even gone on to see a leaked render o That rumor seems to have been confirmed by Xiaomi through their official Mi Weibo page. A poster was today released on Weibo that teased the fact that there’ll be no capacitive fingerprint scanner button but there would be a brand new fingerprint technology on the Mi 5S. The poster also contained the picture of what looks like a fingerprint and no doubt this refers to the under glass ultrasonic fingerprint scanner we’ve heard about earlier on.

The much talked about Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is said to be hidden under the glass, meaning there would be no physical button, perhaps the Mi logo would be there to show where exactly it is located. the scanner uses ultrasound rays which has the ability to penetrate different levels of materials ranging from glass, wood, down to metal. The fingerprint scanning ability of this new technology is said to be such that dirts, grease, sweat or water won’t prevent it from working. That is where the new Apple Touch ID on the iPhione 7 and 7 Plus differs, because Apple’s own cannot work smoothly in greasy and wet conditions.

However, rumors have it that Apple’s 2017 iPhone 8 will in addition to removing the physical home button, would pack similar fingerprint identification technology.In just two days time we’ll get the opportunity to see and feel the Mi 5S with this latest fingerprint technology in tow.
