On the Weibo social network, Xiaomi presented a new feature yesterday that will be implemented in the new flagship Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE. The new functionality applies to the fingerprint reader that is built into the screen.
The new functionality of the reader allows quick access to several functions in the MIUI system overlay. Shortcuts to the virtual assistant Xiao Ai, camera, Wechat, Alipay and information about the state of charge of the battery will appear on the screen. It is likely that you will be able to customize the application shortcuts, but Xiaomi did not confirm this information.
At the beginning, the improvement will go to Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE with Chinese software. If the fans accept it, it will go to the global version, and later to the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. Both versions of the Mi 8 also have a fingerprint reader in the screen.
