Xiaomi CEO showcases fingerprint scanner over the whole screen

Xiaomi is trying to blend in the role of a market disruptor with its low prices and aggressive marketing, but the company is catching up to competitors on the technology and innovation side. While it wasnt the first company to introduce a notch or a waterdrop cutout or a tall screen or dual cameras, Xiaomi is now aiming to change that.

Lin Bin, the president and co-founder of Xiaomi, posted a video on Weibo, demonstrating a fingerprint scanning area of the smartphone which is way bigger than the current solution. You can set up your finger with only one tap and then unlock the locked screen with pressing pretty much everywhere.
