The Redmi K40 and K40 Pro smartphones offer a lot for their money, including the latest generation E4 Samsung Super AMOLED screens. However, they do have side-mounted fingerprint scanners, which may seem odd.
Now the company decided to explain its choice. According to the manufacturer, the side scanner retains the advantage of fast and accurate unlocking while still providing an aesthetic appearance to the device.
The bottom line is that the new Xiaomi products have a scanner integrated into the power button, and this is not a novelty.
However, usually in such smartphones, these same buttons are made flat, and the surface area is increased. In the case of the Redmi K40 line, the button retains its curved shape.
However, it is not very clear how the aesthetics would suffer if the scanner were integrated into the screen.
In addition, the latest Samsung and Meizu flagships prove that such sensors can be generally no slower than the classic ones.
The Chinese company Xiaomi was the first company to unleash a flagship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset. The brand revealed the Mi 11 in December alongside MIUI 12.5.
Recently, the company has officially announced the new flagship for global markets, alongside the respective version of MIUI made for the global audience.
Besides the new software skin and flagship, the company used the opportunity to reveal details about its progress.
According to the brand‘s report, it is the first smartphone brand in ten markets, which includes India as one of the most notable ones.
Moreover, it achieved at least the third position in 36 markets. The Chinese giant also is the fastest-growing brand in the high-end segment with an impressive 3,639% growth year on year in Q3 2020.
