Xiaomi's president is teasing a new breed of in-display fingerprint scanner which has a much larger active area than others.
It's been described with a 6.7-inch screen, an advanced facial recognition system and a hefty price tag. And it will only be available in two markets.
Sense ID beams ultrasonic waves to fingerprints and the sensor reads back echoes to authenticate users. Samsung may be looking to this security measure.
This prediction comes from a generally well-regarded market analyst that has been tracking Apple for many years. Chances are, he's right.
It has aspects of the Mi 8 SE and supposedly has a big feature grabbed right from the Mi 8 Explorer Edition. How much will it be?
Look into the eyes of your Android tablet and what it will see is a way to check to make sure you are who really owns the Tab S4.
Android phone makers will take until late this year at the very earliest to be able to come up with an answer to Face ID, Animoji and the TrueDepth camera.

The all-new Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensor for Display sounds like everything Samsung needs to get rid of awkwardly placed rear-mounted scanners.
Is the security of iris recognition technology on the Galaxy S8 an "issue"? Probably, although Samsung thinks a hack is difficult to happen in reality.
Both LG Pay support and "3D face scanning" tech could be enabled on the LG G6 in a couple of months, with the two services even working together.
It produces AMOLED panels and memory chips for other manufacturers. It could add one more smartphone component to its "can-do" list.
Android Pay will receive both Visa Checkout and Masterpass compatibility while the latter will hitch to Samsung Pay and Microsoft Wallet, too.
It's 1mm thin and is said to perform much better than previous heart rate, stress and blood-oxygen sensors.
A new Samsung patent reveals one possible way to do smartwatch biometric authentication - will we see it on a future Gear model?
Plenty of that smart wearable tech we have in our offices are equipped with heart rate monitors of some sort. If those little sensors do anything else, we can’t tell — all we can tell as that they measure heart rate to varying degrees of accuracy. But what if you could learn more about what your body’s doing at all times? Yep, that includes exercising.
Fear not, fitness fans and fatty friends, as Samsung is now ready to mass-produce an “all-in-one” bioprocessor chip that it will plan on implanting into health-focused smart devices within the first half of [...]
There’s a convergence of news in the mobile technology sphere today from the second-largest bank in the US. And we’re not just talking about a design refresh for its main smartphone app. Apparently, Bank of America has been making use of its resource diversion from Windows Phone or at least has not spilled word on any developments it might have for a Windows 10 Mobile app. But with that operating platform done with for now, another one comes into play today with the bank’s new watchOS app.
